They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is certainly true when it comes to oral health and visits to the dentist. We offer a preventative maintenance of a dental cleaning for corrective measures.

Here at Kherani Dental at Aspen, we will keep your teeth and gums in the best possible shape.

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

Regular visits to your dentist are important for your oral health and provide a bright, healthy smile that can boost your confidence and make a great first impression. The procedure is pretty simple and involves a few steps:

Why You Should Get Regular Teeth Cleaning

Regular dental cleaning does far more than remove plaque and tartar while maintaining a beautiful smile, though of course, it does that too. Some other reasons to visit your dentist every 6 months for teeth cleaning include:

  • Prevention of gum disease

  • Removal of stains, resulting in brighter, whiter teeth

  • Reduces the risk of serious conditions such as diabetes and certain types of oral cancer

  • May reduce the risk of dementia and help prevent the existing condition from worsening

Teeth Cleaning FAQs

Brushing twice a day for two minutes each time and thoroughly flossing once a day is the best way to make sure your appointments with us are stress-free. It’s those who don’t follow a rigorous oral healthcare regimen that have unpleasant visits with us. After all, it’s like they say—an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Proper brushing technique can do wonders for your smile and gums when appropriately implemented. While brushing, some people tend to move in strict up-and-down motions. For the best results, tilt the bristles toward your gumline and brush in a wide, circular motion. We recommend you spend a minute on the top arch and then the other minute on the bottom. Adding an alcohol-free, fluoride-based mouthwash to your regular oral regimen doesn’t hurt either. In fact, it could do a lot of good for both the remineralization of your teeth and in maintaining the health of your gums!
