It’s that time of the year again. Dental cleaning time!

If it’s been more than six months since your last teeth cleaning, then it’s time to get a professional cleaning. Our Eldersburg, MD, dentists Dr. Jocelyn Ocampo, Dr. Alexander Cho, and Dr. Jun Park provide comprehensive dental care to families living in and around Eldersburg, MD, offering everything from teeth cleanings and whitening to braces and implants.

What are the benefits of teeth cleaning?

Need several reasons why you shouldn’t skip out on your routine dental appointments? Here are some of the benefits of turning to our Eldersburg, MD, dentists for regular teeth cleanings and checkups:

  • Freshens breath
  • Removes surface stains for a whiter smile
  • Removes plaque and tartar buildup
  • Prevents dental problems such as cavities and gum disease
  • Catches problems early when they are easier to treat
  • Educates patients on how to properly care for their smiles
  • Provides other preventive treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatment, or mouthguards
  • Improves your overall health
  • Can prevent tooth loss
  • Can save you time and money (and unnecessary dental procedures)
  • Can catch oral cancer early

When should I come in for routine cleanings?

Every individual can benefit from visiting their dentist at least twice a year (every six months) for cleanings and exams. Children should start visiting the dentist by the time they turn one year old and, from there on out, should come in as regularly as adults do for checkups. If you or your child is at an increased risk for cavities, gum disease, or other issues, then you may benefit from coming in every 3-4 months. Talk to your dentist about how often you should come in for dental cleanings.

Could I benefit from teeth whitening?

If you’re coming in for regular dental cleanings, then you may be surprised to discover that your teeth always look vibrant and fresh. That’s because our dental hygienists have the tools and techniques to remove those surface stains; however, these cleanings can only remove superficial stains, they can’t change the color of your teeth. If you are looking for a whiter smile, then talk to our dental team about professional teeth whitening.
