Routine Teeth Cleanings in Grosse Pointe, MI

Brushing and flossing your teeth is a great start to proper oral hygiene habits, but that’s just the beginning. To maintain your pristine smile and grin with confidence, it’s important to schedule regular teeth cleaning appointments. At My Family Dental Grosse Pointe, our comprehensive cleanings go beyond your daily routine, effectively removing plaque and tartar buildup that brushing and flossing alone can’t tackle.

Routine teeth cleanings not only leave your teeth feeling fresh and smooth but also help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental concerns. By regularly removing plaque and tartar buildup, professional cleanings help maintain the health and integrity of your teeth and gums. Schedule your teeth cleaning today to achieve an effortless, bright smile.

What’s Included in a Regularly Scheduled Teeth Cleaning?

  • Oral Exam: Before we begin, we’ll assess your teeth, gums, tongue, and the inside of your cheeks to determine the overall health of your mouth. This will allow us to identify any signs of decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or other dental issues.
  • Tartar Removal: Tartar is hardened plaque that builds up on your gums and the surface of your teeth. We’ll remove this infectious bacteria using specialized dental instruments.
  • Plaque Removal: Food and saliva can live on the surface of your teeth, acting as an invisible, sometimes sticky, film called plaque. This bacteria produces toxins that inflame the gums, causing periodontal disease if left untreated.
  • Teeth Polishing: Once we’ve removed plaque and tartar, we’ll use a motorized polishing wand to rid your teeth of any additional residue and stains.
  • Flossing: Plaque can sometimes hide between your teeth, so our dentists include flossing as part of your teeth cleaning. We’ll also be able to spot areas where your gums bleed, an early indication of gum disease.
  • Fluoride Treatment: We’ll sometimes include a fluoride treatment, often for children and young adults, to strengthen the enamel and protect against cavities.

Teeth Cleaning FAQs

With all the effort we put into maintaining our oral hygiene at home, it’s natural to wonder how professional teeth cleaning differs from your daily routine. With our FAQ section, you’ll learn all you need to know before you arrive for your appointment.

Teeth cleanings should be scheduled every six months to maintain proper oral hygiene. However, depending on your hygiene habits and susceptibility to dental issues, we may recommend a more regulated teeth cleaning schedule.

At My Family Dental Grosse Pointe, we know that no one wants to spend hours sitting at the dentist’s office. That’s why our teeth cleanings only take 30 to 60 minutes. Our goal is to have your teeth fresh and healthy as quickly as possible so you can enjoy the rest of your day.

Not at all. We perform each stage of the teeth cleaning with precision and care, making sure you’re comfortable throughout the process. Depending on the amount of plaque and tartar buildup, you may experience some slight sensitivity in certain areas, but that should subside within a few hours.
