Professional Teeth Cleanings – Canton, MS

Regular brushing and flossing are an important part of maintaining your oral health, but even if you are meticulous about your daily dental routine, only a professional cleaning can make your teeth smooth, bright, and pristinely clean.

Why do you need professional cleanings if you’re already taking care of your teeth at home? Because over time, plaque and tartar build up on your teeth in places that are difficult to clean without the special tools used during an office cleaning. The plaque and tartar can ultimately produce bacteria that causes tooth decay and gum disease. When you come to Dental Solutions of Mississippi for a professional cleaning, not only will you leave knowing that your teeth are as clean as possible; you will leave knowing that you’ve protected yourself against the leading causes of tooth loss.

The Professional Cleaning Procedure

Your cleaning will be completed by one our our highly trained dental hygienists and will begin with an examination to evaluate the overall health of your oral tissues. Next, your hygienist will use specialized tools to remove the plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth. Finally, your teeth will be polished with a rotary brush, making them smooth and shiny.

Most people do not experience discomfort during dental cleanings. If it’s been some time since your last cleaning, it may take a few minutes to become reaquainted to the sensation. If you feel any discomfort, be sure to let your hygienist know. Any discomfort that you feel after the cleaning may be prevented for future cleanings by improved or more frequent flossing or special mouth rinses. Following through with the dental health routine recommended by your hygienist and dentist will give you the best chance of keeping your teeth for life.
