Oral Health Tips

Dr. Lazer says don’t forget to brush your teeth! Daily oral hygiene habits are the key to a healthy smile for the long run. Dr. Lazer emphasizes the importance of routine dental care at home and at his Owings Mills dental office.

Brushing and flossing your teeth for two minutes twice a day will go a long way in the prevention of dental health problems. Problems such as gum disease and tooth decay begin with bad oral health. Both of these issues can lead to complex dental health problems, and even tooth loss.

Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid irritating the gums and soft mouth tissue. Gently brush along your gum line as well. Your gum line is where plaque and tartar buildup causes gum disease.

With the help of modern dentistry, it’s now easier than ever to find a dental cleaning service that fits your needs. We have plenty of options available for you. Whether you’re in search of a professional cleaning or just need some basic advice on how to keep your teeth healthy. Take advantage of the convenience and ease of our services today.

Why Visit the Dentist?

“How often should I visit the dentist for teeth cleaning?” This is a question we often hear from our patients. In general, most people benefit from bi-annual visits to the dentist (every six months). Other patients, however, may benefit from more frequent visits to ensure optimal dental health.

Patients at a higher risk for gum disease or who have advanced periodontitis can benefit from more frequent exams. Our professional deep cleanings will help you avoid tooth loss from gum disease. Routine teeth cleanings and dental exams also allow us to identify problems in the earliest stages. Dr. Lazer will be able to recommend the most conservative treatment options.

Additionally, routine dental care is an important component of post-treatment care. Your dental restorations, dental prosthesis, or dental implants will continue to look and function their best.

Dental Cleaning FAQs

Learn more about routine dental cleanings with answers to these commonly asked questions:

Will a tooth cleaning make my teeth more sensitive?

No. Teeth cleanings will not make your teeth permanently sensitive to hot and cold foods. However, you may notice temporary sensitivity for a couple hours after treatment. Especially if this is your first visit to the dentist in years. You may notice sore gums, and sensitivity around your teeth, but it goes away fairly quickly and you can manage it with pain relievers.

Can a dental cleaning cure halitosis?

A thorough cleaning from our dental hygienist can rid you of harmful bacteria that causes bad breath and halitosis. Professional dental cleanings remove stuck-on plaque and hard-to-remove tartar. Plaque and tartar are two of the largest contributors to bad breath. If you have bleeding gums, you may need a more thorough cleaning we call scaling and root planing.

Can the dentist whiten my teeth during a dental cleaning?

You will notice brighter teeth after a professional dental cleaning. However, it won’t look as dramatic as results from a complete teeth whitening procedure. The dental cleaning process helps remove plaque, a biofilm that naturally forms on your teeth and causes stains. The dentist also removes yellow-brown tartar, effectively improving the brightness of your teeth.

Can dental cleaning damage teeth?

Dental cleaning does not damage teeth. Cleanings are a safe way to remove bacteria and clean teeth, leaving your oral health in good shape. Regular cleanings also help prevent inflammation and gum disease.

What should you not do before a dental cleaning?

Before a dental cleaning patients should avoid eating or drinking at least 5 hours before their appointment. This prevents leftover food particles on your teeth from irritating your gums during your cleaning.

How long should a dental cleaning last?

Dental cleanings take about thirty minutes to an hour. During your cleaning your dentist will remove bacteria and plaque from the surface of your teeth, leaving you with a brighter and healthier smile.
