Teeth Cleanings

Regular Teeth Cleanings in Westland, MI

General guidelines state that both children and adults should get regular dental cleanings every six months. While this schedule works for most people, there are some patients who may need a different schedule based on their oral health. If this is the case, your dentist will recommend a customized plan.

While you may experience some slight discomfort during plaque and tartar removal if you have sensitive gums, your teeth cleanings should never be painful. If you have concerns about the pain, please let us know at your next visit so we can discuss your options. Our staff will make sure that you feel comfortable and that you have a positive dental experience.

In order to keep your smile bright, you should brush your teeth twice a day and floss as often as possible (at least once per day). We recommend rinsing your mouth daily as well after meals. Many of our patients have had excellent luck using fluoride rinse. If you use mouthwash, please use bacteria-killing or fluoride mouthwash.

Here at Parkside Dental, we understand that certain circumstances might cause you to miss a regular dental cleaning appointment. Our goal is simply to help you get back on track. Feel free to make an appointment with us no matter how long it has been since you’ve last seen a dentist.
