What happens during teeth cleaning?

During professional teeth cleanings at Alegria Dental Care, friendly staff members greet you. While you relax in a comfortable dental chair, your hygienist gently cleans your teeth using specialized dental tools. They also floss your teeth and take dental X-rays if needed.

Your dentist examines your teeth and gums and reviews the results of your most recent dental X-rays. The Alegria Dental Care team offers fluoride treatments, sealants, mouthwashes, and other preventive dental services to lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

If you have a dental problem, your specialist can treat it during your visit or at a separate appointment.

How can I keep my teeth clean at home?

The best way to keep your teeth clean and reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay is to brush your teeth after meals, floss daily, use mouthwash if your dentist recommends it, and limit or avoid sweets and sugar-sweetened drinks. 

Visit Alegria Dental Care every six months, or more often if they recommend it, for professional teeth cleanings.

Other ways to keep your teeth and smile healthy include not opening packages with your teeth, wearing a mouthguard if you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night, and not chewing on hard objects like ice and popcorn kernels.
