Teeth Cleanings

Mullins SC Dentist Office

How long has it been since you’ve gone to the dentist for a professional teeth cleaning? One thing we hear from many patients when they come in for a cleaning is this: “I was so embarrassed to come in, it’s been years since my last dental appointment!”

While we certainly recommend you visit our office at least twice a year for a professional cleaning as per American Dental Association guidelines, if it’s been a long time since your last cleaning, don’t worry. There’s no judgment at Blevins Dentistry.

What Happens at a Teeth Cleaning?

Our goal with professional cleanings isn’t to evaluate your past dental history; rather, it’s to give your teeth a thorough cleaning and dental examination, putting you on the path to better overall oral health and wellness moving forward.

Here are just a few things our dental hygienists will do at your appointment to ensure you leave our office with a happier, healthier smile:

  • Remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Over time, plaque and tartar can form from food, saliva, and bacteria. It’s important to keep a close eye on them, as they can lead to more severe dental problems down the road if not taken care of appropriately.
  • Polish and remove stubborn stains from teeth. While not all enamel stains can be removed during a professional cleaning, a professional hygienist can polish your teeth and improve your appearance drastically. Plus, your mouth will feel very clean after your visit!
  • Fluoride treatments for children and teens. Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the risk of tooth decay in growing teeth.

Depending on your unique needs, we may also recommend x-rays. Our digital x-ray technology can help us detect oral health issues before they become a bigger problem. We’ll also discuss nutrition with you in order to ensure your mouth is healthy for years to come.
