Teeth Cleaning Q & A

What is the benefit of professional teeth cleanings?

Professional dental cleanings complement your at-home oral hygiene habits. Even if you diligently brush two times a day, floss, and rinse with a quality mouthwash, you still benefit from professional cleanings. The hygienists can reach areas you just can’t with a toothbrush and floss. Invariably, you miss some areas, no matter how thorough you try to be.


Teeth cleanings get rid of the plaque in these hard-to-reach areas. If plaque is allowed to build up, you’re vulnerable to infection, tooth decay, and gum disease. Regular cleanings protect you from bad breath, too.


How often should I get my teeth cleaned?


The doctors at Loudoun Family and Cosmetic Dentistry recommend professional cleaning at least once every six months. If you have periodontal disease or other oral health concerns, you may need more frequent cleanings.

Your child should first see a dentist within six months of their first tooth eruption or by 12 months at the very latest. Early visits help lay down essential oral health care habits and educate you on how to care for your child’s teeth. Baby teeth lay an important foundation for permanent teeth to come and can affect nutrient intake and speech development.

How does oral health affect my overall health?

The health of your mouth affects the health of your entire body. Infections and inflammation in your oral soft tissue or teeth can impact other organs and directly correlates with conditions such as heart disease and stroke.

What should I expect during teeth cleaning?

The experienced, trained technicians at Loudoun Family and Cosmetic dentistry use professional dental tools and devices to remove stubborn plaque and stains. They floss your teeth thoroughly and then polish them. The office features comfortable chairs, pillows, television, movies, and other amenities to make your cleaning and exam as comfortable as possible.
