Cleaning

Scheduling and attending dental cleanings on a regular basis is the best way to keep your teeth healthy and your smile beautiful. At Solomon Family Dentistry in Summerville and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, skilled dentists offer superior teeth cleaning. To schedule a six-month teeth cleaning, call the nearest office or book an appointment online today.


What is a dental cleaning?

Dental cleanings include comprehensive cleanings of your teeth and gum line, removing tartar and plaque in hard-to-reach areas. Dental cleanings provide more thorough cleaning than you can accomplish with at-home brushing and flossing techniques.

Solomon Family Dentistry providers also offer preventive dental options to reduce you or your child’s risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.

What are the benefits of dental cleaning?

Some of the main benefits you can expect when choosing dental cleanings at Solomon Family Dentistry include:

  • Whiter, brighter teeth
  • Less tartar and plaque
  • Lower risk of tooth decay
  • Reduced risk of gum disease
  • No pain
  • No downtime
  • Superior results

A dental cleaning is often a comfortable, relaxing experience. The dentists also offer nitrous oxide for patients who experience severe dental anxiety, even during cleanings.

What happens during dental cleanings?

During professional teeth cleaning, you rest in a comfortable dental chair. Your dental provider may take dental X-rays if necessary before they begin cleaning your teeth.

Your provider uses specialized dental tools to gently remove tartar and plaque from your teeth, as well as any buildup of bacteria. If needed, they complete deep dental cleaning at or beneath your gum line to reduce gum disease and complications it can cause. 

Your provider also polishes your teeth, flosses them, and offers preventive dentistry services that reduce the risk of tooth decay. Examples include dental sealants and fluoride treatments.

After dental cleanings, your dentist examines your gums and teeth and evaluates the results of your dental X-rays. If you have tooth decay or other oral health issues, they can treat them.

How can I take good care of my teeth at home?

To keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, it’s important to adopt exceptional oral hygiene habits. Brush your teeth using fluoride toothpaste after meals, floss every day, don’t chew on hard objects, and schedule visits at Solomon Family Dentistry at least every six months for dental cleanings. 

If you have gum disease, your dentist may suggest more frequent dental cleanings or using an antibacterial mouth rinse at home. Contact your dentist at the first sign of tooth or gum changes, as early detection and treatment is the best way to avoid serious oral health problems. 

To schedule teeth cleaning for you or a family member, call the nearest Solomon Family Dentistry office or use the online booking feature today.
