At El Segundo Modern Dentistry & Orthodontics, we’ve seen the positive benefits of professional teeth cleaning and preventative care. You can dramatically reduce potential problems with your teeth by keeping up with regular professional cleanings and following some simple at-home prevention tips.

Why Should I Get a Dental Cleaning in El Segundo?

No matter how well you brush your teeth at home, you will never be able to get all the plaque removed by yourself. As the plaque hardens, it becomes tartar. And then bacteria grows, which secretes acids that can inflame gums and eat away at teeth, causing cavities. A professional dental cleaning at El Segundo Modern Dentistry & Orthodontics is the best way to remove the plaque and tartar buildup that leads to gum disease and cavities.

What Are the Benefits of Professional Dental Cleanings?

Professional dental cleanings have many benefits. The main one is, of course, that your teeth will be healthier. Here are a few reasons to get professional dental cleanings at El Segundo Modern Dentistry & Orthodontics:

  • Your teeth will be whiter and brighter because there will be less plaque yellowing your teeth and fewer stains.
  • Your breath will be fresher because there will be less bacteria hanging out in your mouth.
  • Your overall health will be improved, and this is especially important for people with diabetes and heart conditions.

How Often Should I Get a Professional Teeth Cleaning in El Segundo?

The American Dental Association advises that everyone gets at least two professional dental cleanings every year. If you have gum disease, you might need professional dental cleanings more frequently, maybe three or four times per year.

What Happens During a Professional Dental Cleaning in El Segundo?

A professional dental cleaning will not hurt you. It involves just relaxing in a comfortable chair, while our friendly and knowledgeable dental hygienist carefully scrapes away plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and gumline. A small suction tube will be used to collect water and debris from the mouth as the cleaning progresses.

At the end of the cleaning, your mouth will be washed out, and the teeth will be polished. After that, the dental hygienist will also floss your teeth for you. When the cleaning is done, your teeth will feel new and fresh. And they will look better because they will have fewer stains.

What Does a Routine Dental Cleaning Cost in El Segundo?

Dental cleanings in El Segundo range in price but your dental insurance probably will cover much if not all the costs. Professional dental cleaning is going to save you a lot of money down the line, so it is well worth the minor cost of getting it done. We also offer financing options at El Segundo Modern Dentistry & Orthodontics.

Don’t have dental insurance? No problem! Teeth cleanings and other preventative care are relatively inexpensive to pay for out of pocket, especially when compared to the high cost of getting restorative dental work or treating gum disease. We’ll be happy to discuss payment arrangements before you come to Care Dental Center, and we also provide financing options to help you cover any dental work you need to get done.
