Professional Teeth Cleaning

Visiting the dentist at least twice a year for routine dental cleanings is essential, even if you do keep up with good oral care at home. Professional dental cleanings (prophylaxis) are preventive dentistry services that eliminate plaque and tartar accumulation from the teeth and polish the enamel for a brighter, healthier-looking grin. When you visit our practice in Hewitt, TX for dental cleanings, our team will also provide you with tips on how you can best maintain oral hygiene between appointments. Dental exams are also generally performed during routine cleaning visits to screen for conditions that may be affecting your teeth, gums, or jaw. Receiving professional dental cleanings regularly is essential for patients of all ages. Contact ACE Dental of Hewitt today to schedule cleanings for you and every member of your family!

Why is oral hygiene important?

Maintaining good oral hygiene between visits is vital to your dental health and smile. But oral health can also significantly affect other aspects of your life, including your systemic health. You can help keep your teeth and gums in good condition, and reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease, by flossing daily and brushing with a fluoridated toothpaste at least two times a day. When you visit our Hewitt, TX team for your dental cleaning, we will help you establish a good home oral hygiene routine to help optimize the health of your smile.

Who should get Dental Cleanings?

Kids, teenagers, adults, and seniors should all have routine dental cleanings to help keep their teeth and gums in good health. The ADA (American Dental Association) suggests that patients have routine cleanings at a frequency recommended by their dental practitioner. Young children should receive their initial dental exam during the first year of life, after which the team at ACE Dental of Hewitt can assist parents in deciding when their first cleaning should take place. Routine cleanings remove tartar, plaque, and disease-causing bacteria from the teeth, which may help lessen the risk of tooth decay and periodontal problems. In addition to these benefits, cleanings can also help diminish tooth stains to help brighten the smile.

What to Expect at the dentist

When you arrive for your cleaning, we will have you relax in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Our skilled dental hygienists use advanced instruments and techniques to gently remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth without affecting tooth enamel. An ultrasonic device that combines a fine water mist and vibrations may be used to dislodge larger tartar and plaque deposits. Handscaling instruments, such as curettes, will then be utilized to remove smaller pieces from the teeth. After all of your teeth have been cleaned, your enamel will be polished to minimize any surface stains. Your hygienist will demonstrate ideal home care techniques and may suggest products to help you maintain ideal oral hygiene between visits.

What happens after dental cleanings?

One of our general dentists will perform a dental exam and assess your oral health once your teeth have been cleaned. We may also apply a fluoride treatment to your teeth to help reduce your risk of cavities. After your cleaning and exam are complete, we can help you set up your next preventive care visit. If there are specific dental health concerns, such as if you wear braces or have gum disease, our dentists may recommend cleanings more often than twice a year. ACE Dental of Hewitt is dedicated to helping you and your loved ones achieve healthy smiles and proudly offer convenient appointment times to meet your family's needs.

What does Prophylaxis cost?

Dental cleanings are preventive prophylactic services that are typically covered twice a year by the majority of dental insurance providers. Our business team will review your individual policy ahead of time and let you know of any potential out-of-pocket costs. For those who do not carry dental insurance, ACE Dental of Hewitt accepts an array of affordable and convenient payment options. Please speak with our friendly staff to explore your financial solutions.
