Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings Q & A

Why do I need regular teeth cleanings?

Dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings are essential not only as a preventive measure but also as a form of maintenance that has cosmetically appeasing results.

Gum disease can be severe, but it's also preventable with regular professional deep cleanings. 

Checkups and cleanings are recommended every six months to stay up to date with your oral health. You may even need them more frequently if you have an underlying dental health complication.

Many regular checkups also include dental X-rays to identify and prevent cavities, decay, and other dental health issues. The Nukoa Family Dentistry team using cutting-edge technology and low-dose cone beam radiation to capture dental images.

How does dental deep cleaning work?

Before the cleaning begins, your Nukoa dentist conducts a physical examination of your teeth, checking for signs of tooth decay or disease. They gently probe the gums with specialized instruments to measure the pockets and determine if any additional dental treatments will be necessary.

One of the earlier signs of periodontal or gum disease is the formation of pockets between the teeth and gums where the supporting tissue and bone have been destroyed. Your Nukoa dentist looks for these deeper pockets where bacteria can continue to develop, potentially even advancing underneath the gum tissue.

While teeth whitening is another process, professional deep cleanings typically remove more extrinsic stains on your teeth as well.

What are the benefits of professional teeth cleaning?

The numerous benefits to professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Preventing gum disease
  • Cleaner and shinier-looking teeth
  • Potential reduction in stains and discoloration
  • Cleaning hard-to-reach areas not typically reached with regular brushing and flossing

You can’t achieve the same results as your dentist by cleaning your teeth on your own. Your Nukoa dentist has special instruments, tools, products, and knowledge designed to get your teeth as clean as possible and keep you free from gum disease.

The earlier periodontal disease is caught, the sooner it can be treated, and your ongoing checkups and cleanings allow your Nukoa dentist to detect any early warning signs and act fast.
