Teeth Cleaning for Those in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Crystal Lake, Lake Wales & Surrounding Cities

teeth cleaning Good oral hygiene practices and a professional teeth cleaning by the dental hygienists at Walding and Associates help in fighting cavities and infections that can sometimes result in a dental emergency.

Prophylaxis is the term used for a dental cleaning service that is usually performed by a hygienist in a dentist office. Prophylaxis involves more than just cleaning teeth. It’s a preventative dental procedure used to clean teeth and help protect teeth and gums from decay and diseases. Typical cleaning procedures at Walding and Associates include the following and more:

  • The hygienist will do a quick physical exam of the teeth and gums with a dental probe
  • Ultrasonic scalers or other equipment are then used to remove plaque, tartar and stains
  • All tooth surfaces are cleaned and polished
  • All teeth are flossed
  • Topical fluoride is often applied

Many patients at Walding and Associates avoid potential dental emergencies because a hygienist or dentist has detected a dental problem such as a loose filling or an abscess during a regularly scheduled dental cleaning. Professional deep cleaning is so effective that’s it’s even one of the treatments used for treating diseases caused by inflammation from the build-up of plaque such as periodontal and gum diseases.

Walding and Associates supports the American Dental Association recommendations for teeth cleaning at home including brushing at a 45-degree angle to the gums for at least two minutes twice a day, replacing tooth brushes every three to four months and using fluoride toothpaste. Flossing should also be a regular part of any at-home teeth cleaning routine because it helps remove food particles and bacteria under the gum and between the teeth.

Contact Walding and Associates today and schedule an appointment for an exam, x-rays and teeth cleaning at our dental office that’s located near your home or office in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Auburndale, Crystal Lake, Lake Wales or the surrounding cities.
