    What Are Professional Dental Cleanings?

    Professional dental cleanings are professional treatments essential to maintaining good oral hygiene. During these appointments, a trained dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dentist like Dr. Collins or Dr. Hatcher, thoroughly removes plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gum line. 

    These deposits, if left unchecked, can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental problems. They can also exacerbate these issues if they’re already present. Professional teeth cleanings help you improve and maintain your oral health, and ensure that your smile stays healthy and radiant.

    Benefits of Professional Dental Cleanings

    • Plaque and Tartar Removal: Dental cleanings effectively remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth and along the gum line. This helps prevent cavities and gum disease and reduces the risk of tooth decay and tooth loss.
    • Surface Stain Removal: Professional dental cleanings can brighten your smile by removing surface stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, and other staining substances. This improves the appearance of your teeth and enhances your overall confidence in your smile.
    • Early Detection of Oral Health Issues: Regular dental cleanings allow your dental professional to closely examine your mouth for signs of potential health issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Detecting these issues enables prompt intervention and treatment, preventing them from progressing into serious conditions.
    • Improved Breath: Dental cleanings help eliminate bacteria and food debris that contribute to bad breath (halitosis). By maintaining a clean and healthy oral environment, dental cleanings promote fresher breath and overall oral hygiene.
    • Promotion of Oral Health: By removing plaque, tartar, and surface stains, dental cleanings contribute to the maintenance of strong, healthy teeth and gums. This supports oral health and reduces the likelihood of developing dental problems in the future, leading to a happier and healthier smile.

    Types of Professional Dental Cleanings

    Prophylaxis (Regular Cleaning)

    A prophylaxis, or regular cleaning, is recommended for patients with generally good oral health and no significant gum disease. During this procedure, Dr. Collins, Dr. Hatcher, or one of our skilled dental hygienists will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and along the gum line.

    Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)

    For patients with more advanced gum disease or periodontal issues, scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) may be necessary. This comprehensive, deep dental cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line and smoothing the root surfaces of the teeth to promote gum reattachment and healing.

    Full Mouth Debridement

    In cases of severe gum disease or excessive plaque and tartar buildup, a full mouth debridement may be required. This thorough periodontal maintenance cleaning involves removing all plaque, tartar, and calcified deposits from the teeth and gum areas, providing a clean slate for future periodontal treatment and maintenance.

    Who Needs Professional Dental Cleanings?

    While routine dental exams and cleanings are standard in our practice for preventive care, certain signs indicate an urgent need for treatment to prevent serious gum diseases from developing or worsening. Look out for symptoms such as:

    • Gum tenderness or swelling
    • Spontaneous or brushing-induced gum bleeding
    • Redness or inflammation of the gums
    • Gum recession
    • Persistent bad breath or unpleasant taste in the mouth
    • Loose or mobile teeth
    • Sudden or chronic mouth pain
    • Difficulty chewing or biting
    • Gum pus drainage
    • Heightened sensitivity to hot and cold
    • Changes in occlusion or denture fit

    Experiencing one or more of these symptoms calls for comprehensive teeth cleaning at our Rosenberg, TX practice. Your dentist will assess your oral health and recommend the appropriate type of cleaning as necessary.

    What To Expect During Professional Dental Cleanings


    During your consultation, your dental professional, such as Dr. Collins or Dr. Hatcher, will review your medical history and discuss any concerns or issues you may have. They will assess your current oral health and determine the appropriate type of cleaning needed based on your individual needs. Your consultation is a great time to ask questions or voice concerns. 


    You will be comfortably seated in the dental chair, where your dentist or hygienist will provide you with protective eyewear and drape a bib over your chest to protect your clothing during the teeth-cleaning process.

    Prophylaxis (Regular Cleaning)

    Your dental professional will use specialized tools, such as scalers and ultrasonic instruments, to remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth and along the gum line. Our Rosenberg, TX dentist or dental hygienist will gently clean your gum line, ensuring minimal irritation. A continuous stream of water rinses your mouth while being suctioned through a tube. 

    Then, your dental professional will polish your teeth with a gritty paste to remove surface stains and leave your smile looking brighter. After the polishing, your dental professional will floss your teeth and have you rinse away any debris.

    Scaling and Root Planing (Deep Cleaning)

    During this cleaning process, your dentist or hygienist will use specialized instruments to remove plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line and smooth the root surfaces of your teeth. Local anesthesia may be administered to ensure comfort during this more extensive cleaning process.

    Full Mouth Debridement

    Your dental professional will thoroughly remove all plaque, tartar, and calcified deposits from your teeth and gum areas. This comprehensive cleaning may be performed over multiple appointments and may require local anesthesia for comfort.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How long do professional dental cleanings take?

    The duration of a dental cleaning can vary depending on the type of cleaning needed and the condition of your teeth and gums. Regular prophylaxis typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, while a deep cleaning or full mouth debridement may require multiple appointments.

    Can professional dental cleanings whiten my teeth?

    While dental cleanings can remove surface stains and make your teeth appear brighter, they are not a substitute for professional teeth whitening treatments. However, maintaining regular cleanings can help prolong the effects of whitening procedures.

    Is it necessary to get professional dental cleanings if I brush and floss regularly?

    Yes, professional dental cleanings are still crucial, even if you practice excellent oral hygiene at home. Dental professionals have specialized tools and techniques to remove hardened plaque and tartar that can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas, ensuring a thorough cleaning. Professional cleanings are also ideal if you suffer from chronic dental issues like gum disease. 

    Can gum disease be reversed with professional dental cleanings?

    While dental cleanings are critical to managing and treating gum disease, they may not be sufficient to reverse the advanced stages of the condition. In such cases, additional treatments, such as scaling and root planing or periodontal surgery, may be necessary in conjunction with regular cleanings and improved oral hygiene habits.
