Your smile is one of your most powerful assets, and its foundation lies in optimal oral health. In the bustling rhythm of life, it's easy to sideline dental care until an issue arises. Yet, preventive care like regular teeth cleanings can be your frontline defense against dental complications. Dive in as we unravel the significance of teeth cleanings, their frequency, and what to expect during a session, ensuring you're equipped with knowledge and confidence for your next visit to our Dental Office in San Diego.

In the heart of San Diego, our Dental Office offers a serene haven for dental care. As one of the pillars of preventive dental care, teeth cleanings play an indispensable role in ensuring your oral health's longevity. Yet, many of our valued patients express anxiety over routine dental exams. Here's a transparent glimpse into the process, hoping it eases apprehensions and equips you with knowledge.

Why Prioritize Regular Teeth Cleanings?

It's a common misconception that only those with dental issues need regular cleanings. The truth is, whether you have dental challenges or not, periodic cleanings are imperative. As highlighted by the American Dental Association (ADA), such proactive visits empower Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) to detect potential problems early on. Early detection often translates to less invasive treatments and cost savings. Moreover, certain systemic medical conditions first manifest their symptoms in the oral cavity. Through regular cleanings, we gain a valuable window to spot them ahead of time.

Determining the Frequency of Dental Cleanings

At our Dental Office, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) advises patients to embrace dental cleanings every six, fostering a tradition of healthy dental habits. Yet, individual needs can vary. High-risk groups, such as pregnant women, smokers, individuals with diabetes or weak immune systems, and those prone to cavities, may require more frequent visits. Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) will assess your unique needs and recommend an optimal frequency for your cleanings. Many of our patients prefer to get their teeth cleaned 3 times a year or every 4 months. Those with gum disease are recommended to come 4 times a year, or every 3 months.

Delving into the Teeth Cleaning Process

A standard teeth cleaning session commences with our dental hygienist performing a detailed physical examination of your mouth, using specialized instruments to check for signs of gum disease or other potential concerns. If you're a first-timer or it’s been over a year since your last cleaning, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) might suggest X-rays. These provide a profound insight into hidden problems like cysts, decay beneath the teeth, or bone loss.

Once assured of no significant issues, the hygienist will focus on removing plaque and tartar from your teeth and gum line. Ensuring daily brushing and flossing can significantly reduce plaque and tartar buildup at home. Following this, your teeth will be treated to a professional cleaning using a high-powered brush and a specially-formulated toothpaste. The session will conclude with thorough flossing and a final dental examination by Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry), using a periodontal probe to gauge the health of your gum pockets.

Post-examination, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) will engage in a comprehensive conversation about your oral health, possible risks, and preventive steps for future enhancement.
