About Dental Cleanings
Even with a good home oral hygiene routine, including brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can still build up around the enamel. This can lead to decay, cavities, and bacterial infections and other problems. To ensure the teeth stay healthy and clean, Fairlawn, OH residents should have a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year at DentalWorks - Fairlawn with our dentists. This is typically known as a prophylaxis. During a professional dental cleaning, our dentists will use oral cleaning tools to carefully remove tarter build-up and plaque on the tooth's surface. After the cleaning, the teeth will be buffed and polished and any recommended dental procedures such as fillings and crowns will be discussed. Routine dental exams and cleanings are vital for a clean and healthy mouth.

What to Expect
Dental cleanings are generally painless, but if a patient has sensitive teeth or gums, a numbing cream can be used. In addition, if the patient has trouble getting through a dental cleaning due to fear, mild sedation options are also provided at DentalWorks - Fairlawn. A cleaning usually begins with an ultrasonic tool that helps to loosen plaque and tartar. Next, our dentists use hand tools such as scalers and curettes to remove build-up from the gumline and enamel. The final step is to brush, polish, and buff the enamel. Flossing and/or fluoride usually completes the procedure.
Once the teeth are cleaned, our dentists may perform an oral examination to check for signs of any oral conditions such as cancer or gum disease. To make certain the teeth stay healthy, patients should establish an at-home oral health regime of brushing and flossing daily. Patients should schedule their next dental cleaning at DentalWorks - Fairlawn prior leaving the office, generally within six months.
Because a professional dental cleaning twice a year is considered a necessary preventative care treatment, most dental insurance carriers will cover a large majority of the cost. DentalWorks - Fairlawn will verify with each patient's insurance provider to determine their coverage before billing the patient directly. Patients without dental insurance may inquire about financing plans through DentalWorks - Fairlawn.
