What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?

Maintaining good oral hygiene for a healthy mouth and beautiful smile means visiting your dentist twice annually for a cleaning or more depending on the conditions of teeth and gums. For various reasons, ranging from lack of time to lack of insurance, some individuals never quite get into the routine of regular dental cleanings. Once they’re in a position to take control of their oral health, they often wonder, “What happens during a teeth cleaning?” This is also the question often asked of children when they’re about to see a dentist for the first time.
