Corpus Christi, TX Teeth Cleaning & Checkups
Keep Your Mouth Healthy with Routine Dental Care
It’s important to take an active role in your dental health by scheduling teeth cleaning and checkups regularly. Gentle Dental Spa offers these services to help maintain optimal oral health by identifying any problem areas before you undergo a complete teeth cleaning. You should schedule these appointments at least once every 6 months, or more frequently if you have specific dental issues requiring more frequent periodontal maintenance.
Why Do I Need Regular Teeth Cleanings & Checkups?
The reason you need to see a dentist is because it’s still possible to have gum and tooth problems even if you brush and floss twice a day. These exams are intended to monitor your oral health and ward off problems like gum disease or tooth decay. By identifying and treating problems like these early, you can prevent the situation from snowballing into a more costly issue later on.
Routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings are beneficial for a number of reasons, because they help you:
- Maintain healthier teeth, bones, and gums
- Keep your breath fresh and your teeth white
- Identify bite problems that could be corrected through teeth straightening
- Get earlier detection and treatment of oral health conditions, including oral cancer
- Correct problems gum disease or infections so you can have a beautiful, healthy smile

What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?
As your dental hygienist performs your teeth cleaning, plaque and tartar will be identified and removed with special instruments. All surfaces of the teeth are cleaning, including the spaces between teeth and at the gumline, where plaque is typically concentrated. Next, the teeth are flossed to remove plaque and buildup from between the teeth. The final step is applying prophy paste is used to polish the teeth and remove any lingering plaque while leaving your teeth smooth and shiny and your breath smelling fresh.
