Dental CleaningAn Overview

Practicing great oral care habits and receiving routine dental cleanings is key to maintaining excellent oral health. In our Silver Spring Dentist office, Dr. Rever gives patients regular dental cleanings to eliminate excess buildup of plaque, tartar, and debris. Diligent, everyday tooth brushing can not replace a thorough deep cleaning from a dentist. We use high-quality materials to thoroughly clean your teeth and leave you with a fresh, clean smile.

During your visit, we take the time to get to know you and discuss your personal dental concerns. Understanding how your individual lifestyle choices can affect oral health can help you to make better decisions about your daily habits.

Do you ever feel frustrated when you are told you have a cavity despite diligent tooth brushing and flossing? There are many factors influencing your oral health. Understanding how to identify your individual risk factors can play an important role in reducing gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental problems. Factors that can affect oral health include:

  • Genetics
  • Oral hygiene habits
  • Diet
  • Tobacco use and smoking
  • Medications
  • Hormonal and weight changes

Dental cleanings are considered a preventative measure in dentistry. Our dentist in Silver Spring MD strives to highlight the importance of healthy oral health habits. Dental cleanings can be given in conjunction with a comprehensive oral heath exam. Your initial visit will include a consultation and exam with Dr. Rever, as well as a periodontal screening, oral cancer screening, and occlusal analysis. During the periodontal screening, Dr. Rever can thoroughly take a look at your teeth and gums. He will determine if you have any gum disease problems that should be further examined. Bleeding gums every time you brush your teeth is a common sign of gum disease. During the preventative exam, issues like gum disease and tooth decay can be diagnosed early for the possibility of conservative treatment. Dr. Rever is an experienced Silver Spring dentist, with advanced training in complex and advanced dental treatments.

Dental Cleaning FAQs

Why is it important to get dental cleanings every 6 months?

Your teeth do not stay clean forever. Plaque and tartar build up every day, even if you can’t see it with your naked eye. Periodic dental cleanings ensure that your teeth are not affected by buildup, get cavities less often, and prevent gum disease.

Does teeth cleaning treatment hurt?

No, your teeth cleaning should not hurt. It should feel like a deep massage for your mouth. You will leave the dentist office feeling refreshed. If you do experience pain during your cleaning, let your dentist know. Communication is key to diagnose and prevent advanced dental issues.

Can dental cleanings damage teeth?

No. Dental cleanings are an effective way to prevent unseen issues from becoming significant damage. They are a good way of finding dental issues that can become more aggressive if left untreated.
