What are the benefits of six monthly cleanings?

One of the key benefits of six-monthly cleanings is the early detection of dental problems. During these appointments, dentists and hygienists thoroughly examine your mouth for signs of issues such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other conditions. Early detection allows for more straightforward and less invasive treatments. For example, catching a cavity early can mean a simple filling rather than a root canal or extraction if the decay is allowed to progress.

Similarly, early-stage gum disease (gingivitis) can often be reversed with professional cleaning and improved oral hygiene, whereas advanced gum disease (periodontitis) may require more extensive treatment.


What happens during the teeth cleaning?

During a teeth cleaning, a dental hygienist first conducts a thorough examination of your mouth. They use a small mirror to inspect your teeth and gums, checking for signs of cavities, gum inflammation, and other oral health issues. This preliminary assessment helps identify areas that need more attention and ensures that any potential problems are addressed. If significant issues are found, the hygienist might consult the dentist before proceeding.

The cleaning process involves several steps. First, the hygienist uses a scaler to remove plaque and tartar from around your teeth and gum line. This can take some time, especially if there's significant buildup. After scaling, the hygienist polishes your teeth with a high-powered electric brush and gritty toothpaste, which helps remove surface stains. This is followed by flossing to clean between your teeth and ensure all debris is removed. Finally, you might receive a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and help prevent cavities until your next visit. The entire process is designed to leave your mouth clean, healthy, and refreshed.

Finally, six-monthly teeth cleanings can improve your quality of life by ensuring a bright, clean smile and fresh breath. Stains from food, drinks, and tobacco can be difficult to remove with regular brushing alone. Professional cleanings can effectively remove these stains, leading to whiter teeth and a more attractive smile. Additionally, the removal of plaque and tartar reduces the bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath. This can boost self-confidence and social interactions, making regular dental cleanings an essential part of your overall self-care routine. 


What if I have not had a cleaning in a while?

Regular dental cleanings also contribute to overall health beyond just the mouth. There is a growing body of evidence linking oral health to systemic health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory infections. Poor oral hygiene and untreated dental diseases can lead to chronic inflammation and infection, which can have negative impacts on other parts of the body. By maintaining good oral hygiene and having regular professional cleanings, you can help reduce the risk of these associated health problems and promote overall well-being.
