Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your hygienist and Dr. Kandola helps you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.
A regular home prevention routine usually consists of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your mouth a little easier? Depending on your needs, there is special toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help you keep your smile bright and healthy for years to come. Synergy Dental Arts can help you find the best tools to enhance your daily hygiene routine making your professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.

No. Tartar usually forms below the gum line, so it is especially hard to remove with brushing or flossing alone. If you try to remove tartar on your own, you could damage your gums and teeth.
The time for teeth cleaning varies from person to person. However, the average time is usually about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Teeth cleaning costs vary depending on many factors, including how much work is being done, where the dentist is located, the patient's dental insurance plan, etc. Many dentists recommend teeth cleaning twice a year. But on average, the price can range from $250 - $350.
Teeth cleaning does not whiten your teeth. To make your teeth whiter, you'll need to drink more water and brush with whitening toothpaste after visiting the dentist for teeth cleaning. You can also consult your dentist for professional teeth whitening.
Yes, it is. Some people brush and floss their teeth regularly but don't go to the dentist for teeth cleaning. But, this behavior can cause plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth. Tartar is hard to remove with brushing or flossing alone. Cavities are especially common in areas that are hard to reach when you clean your teeth, so you need to have them cleaned by a dental professional.
Teeth cleaning, also called prophylaxis, is the process of removing tartar and plaque from teeth. Your dentist does this by using special instruments to get deep into your gums and remove any bacteria or stains that remain after brushing and flossing.
Yes, teeth cleaning can help reduce bad breath. If you have had your teeth cleaned and still notice that you have bad breath, then it may be caused by another medical condition such as diabetes or liver disease cirrhosis. Bad breath typically indicates a problem with your overall health so consult with your doctor to see what is causing it.
Two times a year is recommended by most dentists; but if your dentist notices early signs of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need to visit them more frequently for teeth cleaning.
Studies show that brushing and flossing your teeth two times a day is not necessarily enough to get rid of the cavity-causing bacteria, so you should visit your dentist regularly for teeth cleaning. Visiting your doctor regularly for teeth cleaning can help remove tartar and plaque from your teeth, which will protect against cavities and gum disease. Regular dental cleaning also helps prevent damage to your tooth enamel.
After you have had your teeth cleaned, it is best to avoid eating for 30 minutes. This way, your gums can recover from the procedure. If you are hungry, drink water or juice instead of eating food.
