Regular Dentist examinations and cleanings

Having your teeth cleaned regularly is an excellent method to maintain the health of your gums, teeth, and a broad smile.

During the routine checkup you have scheduled, your dentist will examine your mouth, do any required dental cleaning, and take x-rays to obtain a complete picture of your oral health. Checkups regularly have the potential to identify any general health concerns that may need further investigation by a medical professional.

Even if you are diligent about cleaning and flossing your teeth, tartar (calculus) and plaque may still form on your teeth over time. Tartar is a hard deposit that is made up of bacteria-rich plaque. Without the use of specialized equipment, it is impossible to eliminate these buildups. If these deposits are permitted to stay on the tooth or under the gum line for an extended time. They provide an environment where bacteria in your mouth may thrive and flourish. Some of these bacteria create acids that, if left unchecked, may lead to tooth decay and gum disease. In the absence of treatment, this condition may result in inflammation and infection of the gums. In certain instances, an infection in the mouth might affect illnesses that manifest elsewhere in the body.

Teeth Cleaning Process

Our dental hygienists and dentists will utilize specialized dental devices that were developed exclusively for the purpose of teeth cleaning. Your teeth are unique to you. Thus, your cleaning will be customized to meet your needs. Nevertheless, the majority of cleanings adhere to a consistent format and contain the following steps:

  • The elimination of calculus and tartar:

    Tartar is a substance that has been hardened and is now firmly adhered to the tooth surface. It forms when material generally removed from the tooth by brushing and flossing is ignored. It may develop above and below the gum line, is not always visible, and can only be eliminated by using specialized dental instruments.

  • Plaque removal

    Plaque is a coating that builds on the teeth and is rather sticky. It is a live colony of bacteria, saliva, and food particles continually expanding. This bacterium has the potential to create toxins that cause inflammation of the gums and is the first step in the development of periodontal disease in your mouth.

  • Polishing

    When you polish your teeth, you may eliminate any plaque and stains left behind after flossing, brushing, and scaling your teeth. Polishing is an optional step. The phase in the cleaning process known as polishing is often the one our patients enjoy the most.


Yes. Flossing is great for removing debris from in-between the teeth, but professional dental cleaning by a dentist or hygienist can remove any tartar that has built-up and get below the gumline further than flossing can. It’s also great for removing stains from the teeth.

We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain or injury. 

If you have good oral health, cleaning can take around 30 minutes. If you need more in-depth cleaning, it could take up to an hour each visit spread over several appointments.

Absolutely! In fact, it’s even more important to visit the dentist and have regular teeth cleanings when you are pregnant because you are at higher risk of gum disease and decay due to the change in hormones. It’s very safe and advised for the health of you and your baby.

We accept most dental insurance plans. Here at Fieldstone Dental we want to make it easy and affordable to access your treatment.
