Preventive dentistry is the foundation of healthy teeth and gums. The key to proper dental care involves two crucial components: at-home dental care and routine dental visits. While at-home oral hygiene is essential, brushing, flossing, and oral rinses aren’t enough to remove accumulated plaque and tartar (dental calculus). Meredith Levine, DDS, Inc. in Century City, California, is pleased to offer routine dental cleanings to bridge the gaps in your home dental care routine.
We are always happy to retain existing clients and add new patients to our growing dental family. We provide numerous general dentistry services to help you and your family maintain healthy smiles. One of the most common procedures we offer is professional teeth cleaning. This treatment allows us to eliminate accumulated dental calculus for a healthy mouth. Our office uses cutting-edge equipment to ensure a smooth cleaning process while delivering that clean feeling over each tooth.
Chances are that you want to keep your teeth for life. To achieve this milestone, preventative care like dental cleanings is a no-miss. A typical dental cleaning takes 30-60 minutes, but the benefits stay with you for life.
For starters, the treatment is painless and straightforward. So, if you have been avoiding dental appointments because of dental anxiety, dental cleaning is a well-tolerated procedure.
After examining your mouth, our dental hygienist uses a dental scaler to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and along the gum line. Then, we floss and polish your teeth to remove surface stains for a gleaming, white smile. If you are at risk of decay, we’ll recommend dental sealants or fluoride treatment to keep your teeth healthy.
Maintaining optimal dental health isn’t a one-off activity — it’s a lifetime job you cultivate from childhood to adulthood. We emphasize vigilant oral hygiene at home. Still, we recommend our patients see us every six months for dental exams and cleanings. However, patients at risk of cavities and gum disease should schedule more frequent visits.
Here are some benefits of routine teeth cleanings to keep in mind:
