The Purpose of Cleanings

A dental cleaning in South Pasadena will keep your teeth healthy and prevent oral health problems

A dental cleaning, or prophy, is the professional cleaning of your teeth. The purpose of a professional cleaning is to help you remove the bacteria on your teeth that brushing and flossing properly still won’t get. A dental cleaning in South Pasadena involves a few different steps including: removal of tartar, removal of plaque and teeth polishing. Plaque is what bacteria in your mouth turns into when it is not removed and paired with the foods you eat, especially sugar. Tartar, or calculus, is plaque that has hardened to the surface of your tooth above and below your gums. Brushing and flossing won’t remove this hardened bacteria, as it requires special dental instruments to remove. Once the tartar and plaque have been removed, the hygienist will polish your teeth, removing any left over plaque and light staining. Check out our patients reviews, and see how much our clients love getting a dental cleaning in South Pasadena.

Why is Dental Examination Important?

A dental cleaning in South Pasadena is important to your overall health

Dental cleanings are very important to your health, and not just your oral health, but your overall health as well. In fact, one of the most important parts to teeth cleaning in South Pasadena is the examination of your teeth. A comprehensive exam of your teeth is performed during each of your visits for a cleaning to ensure proper oral health. During an examination, the dentist will look for several different clues that there could be other occurring problems with your teeth. In order to search for issues such as tooth decay, tumors, bone loss and cysts, which are usually undetectable to the eye, digital x-rays of your teeth will be taken and examined. If you have signs of tooth decay, the dentist will discuss the severity of the decay, and your options for treatment. An oral cancer screening will also be performed, which requires the dentist or hygienist to check around your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for signs of the disease. Another disease that will be checked for is gum disease, gingivitis, or periodontal disease, which is an oral health issues located primarily within the gums that can affect your teeth and bones as well. Lastly, if you have any other completed dental work that has been done in the past, such as crowns, implants or fillings, those will be examined to make sure they are still in good shape. Call us today at (626) 441-6234 and schedule your appointment for a dental cleaning in South Pasadena.

"Cleanings Are Necessary For Great Oral Hygiene"

"Cleanings Are Necessary For Great Oral Hygiene"

A teeth cleaning in South Pasadena can save you from problems you don’t want

"I’ll be the first to tell you that regular dental cleanings twice a year aren’t the only things necessary for you to keep great oral health. Proper brushing and flossing techniques are also important, but neither can ensure perfect oral hygiene. However, in combination, cleanings and proper care at home can go a long way, but when they don’t we have a way of being able to tell hopefully before it's too late. Dental cleanings aren’t just important to remove unwanted bacteria from your mouth; they are also the key to finding oral health problems you may not know about early on."
