Teeth Cleaning

Key West Dental Group in St. Charles, MO

Regular teeth cleaning and exams are the cornerstone of great dental hygiene and oral health. A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health and ensure your dentist is able to evaluate and discuss and potential issues with your teeth, gums, and mouth.

Key West Dental strongly recommends that our patients have a dental cleaning procedure every six months. This professional teeth cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.

People who regularly practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing and flossing techniques typically do not experience discomfort during a cleaning. However, those who have neglected their oral hygiene habits may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during a dental cleaning. The dentist can use a topical anesthetic before the cleaning to alleviate any discomfort.

During a dental cleaning, you’ll receive diagnostic and preventive services from your dentist as well as any needed educational information.

Diagnostic services may include:

  • Reviewing and updating medical history, including information about heart problems, pregnancy, diabetes and medications, which may have an impact on your oral health

  • Oral cancer examination and screening

  • Evaluation of gum tissue

  • Checking biting, chewing and swallowing patterns

  • X-rays or examination of teeth to detect decay

  • Referral to specialists for specific treatment

Preventive services may include:

  • Removal of plaque and tartar

  • Stain removal

  • Fluoride application

  • Sealants (for children)

  • Polishing teeth, including fillings and crowns

  • Cleaning and adjustment of dentures and partial dentures
