Teeth Cleaning in North Olmsted, Ohio

Patient receives dental cleaning

Good oral health begins at home with regular brushing and flossing. Yet no matter how carefully you follow an at-home care routine, professional dental cleanings are an essential aspect of preventive care for your teeth and mouth. At Sikora Family Dentistry, our compassionate and experienced team provides comprehensive teeth cleaning for patients of all ages in North Olmsted, Ohio, and the surrounding areas, so you can feel confident in the health and beauty of your smile.

The Importance of Dental Cleanings

Our mouths are home to a variety of bacteria. Some of these are highly beneficial, keeping bad breath at bay and breaking down the foods we eat. However, when bacteria combine with foods that are high in starch or sugar, plaque is formed. This sticky film coats the teeth and is difficult to remove completely via brushing or flossing. Over time, plaque that is not removed will harden into tartar. These deposits cannot be removed at home and require a dental cleaning to resolve.

Without regular teeth cleanings, these substances lead to tooth decay (cavities), gingivitis (gum disease), and even tooth loss. This deterioration can be painful and diminishes the appearance of your smile. At the same time, tooth decay may cause more serious health complications, including:

Sikora Family Dentistry adheres to dental cleaning recommendations from the American Dental Association (ADA), which suggests twice-yearly cleanings for most patients. Those who smoke or have been diagnosed with periodontal disease or other medical problems may require more frequent teeth cleanings.

What to Expect at Your Dental Cleaning

When you visit Sikora Family Dentistry, one of our friendly, highly experienced dental hygienists will perform your dental cleaning. This process begins with an ultrasonic instrument that gently loosens and removes the largest segments of plaque and tartar on your teeth. Next, the hygienist will rinse your teeth with a mist of water. A more precise tool will also be used to scrape away any remaining plaque before your teeth are polished.

Dental cleanings do not cause pain, although some patients may feel anxious about their appointment. This is perfectly normal, and our team will work with you to calm your nervousness and explain the process from start to finish. In most cases, patients simply enjoy the feel of recently cleaned and polished teeth after a dental cleaning.
