Routine Dental Cleanings in Olathe, KS!

Regular dental cleanings and exams are an important part of maintaining a happy, healthy smile. Dental cleanings help remove plaque from areas that are difficult for patients to clean thoroughly with a toothbrush, which reduces their chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Exams are also helpful for diagnosing and treating dental issues in a timely manner. Ready to schedule your next visit with us? We’re ready to see you! Contact our office today.

Will regular teeth cleanings whiten my teeth?

Professional dental cleanings involve using a special, gritty toothpaste to scrub the surface of the teeth, which can help remove some minor staining. However, dental cleanings do not offer patients noticeably brighter smiles. If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, please ask our team about our professional teeth whitening services. We would be happy to work with you to find your perfect shade of white and provide you with consistently beautiful teeth.

Do I need deep cleanings?

Deep cleanings are often prescribed for patients who have periodontal disease. The first step in a deep cleaning involves cleaning under the gum line to remove plaque and tartar that has collected in the gum pockets. Then, root planing is used to smooth out the roots of the teeth and help the gums reattach to the teeth. If you do not have periodontal disease, regular dental cleanings and exams twice per year will likely be enough to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.

Do dental cleanings hurt?

Professional dental cleanings should not be a painful or overly uncomfortable experience. If you know you have sensitive teeth and/or gums, please let our team know, and we’ll do our best to clean your teeth as gently as possible. If you have recently developed sensitive teeth or gums, that can indicate that a larger issue is present, and we will want to know that as well. Our team can work with you to help you reduce your sensitivity and have better dental experiences and outcomes.
