Teeth cleaning

Regular teeth cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, are essential to maintaining good oral health. It is recommended to schedule dental cleanings twice a year to keep your smile healthy and prevent future dental problems.

Here are the key reasons why regular teeth cleanings are important:

Prevents tooth decay

Keep out the cavities! Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to tooth decay. Learn about tooth decay.

Prevents gum disease

Removing sticky plaque and tartar buildup can also prevent gum inflammation and infection, known as gum or periodontal disease. Learn about gum disease.

Freshens breath

Plaque contains bacteria which can cause bad breath. Removing it will naturally improve the smell.

Brightens teeth

Cleanings can help remove stains from coffee, tea, tobacco, and other substances, improving the overall look of your smile. Learn about teeth whitening.

Early detection

Your Celebrate Dental care team can catch early signs of dental problems during cleanings, such as cavities and gum disease, and prevent them from getting worse. Learn about early detection services.

Saves money

Preventive dental care, like regular cleanings, is more cost-effective than treating advanced dental problems. Explore our dental services costs.

Types of professional teeth cleaning

Explore your options today with your Celebrate Dental care team.

Healthy mouth cleaning

Your dental hygienist will meticulously clean the surfaces of your teeth and above the gum lines. Using a scaler, they’ll scrap away plaque and tartar buildup to prevent future problems, and gently remove any stubborn stains. A final polish shines and cleans your tooth enamel.

Periodontal cleaning (dental deep cleaning)

Need to stop the progression of gum infection, also known as periodontal disease? A periodontal cleaning (dental deep cleaning) targets bacteria that have extended deep below the gum line. Scaling involves meticulous removal of these deposits from the tooth surfaces and pockets, while root planing focuses on smoothing the root surfaces to facilitate gum reattachment and prevent bacterial growth.

Periodontal maintenance cleaning

Periodontal maintenance is a specialized cleaning performed periodically to keep periodontal disease in remission. It’s a great way to keep up with your gum health after your initial periodontal cleaning with your Celebrate Dental care team.

Dental cleaning cost

The dental cleaning cost at Celebrate Dental & Braces can vary based on location, specific services needed, and individual treatment plans. Typically, a routine dental cleaning starts at $165. Prices may differ depending on your specific needs and any additional treatments the dentist recommends. To get an accurate estimate, contact your nearest Celebrate Dental office.
