Teeth CleaningAn Overview
Getting your teeth cleaned at least twice a year is one of the best things you can do for the health of your teeth and gums. While twice-daily brushing and flossing is the best way to keep your teeth clean between professional cleanings, it may not be enough to keep your smile cavity free. Professional teeth cleanings thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth, even those hard to reach areas that are highly susceptible to developing tooth decay.
Patients of all ages should visit the dentist at least once every six months for a comprehensive oral health exam and dental cleaning. Children and adult patients benefit from regular teeth cleanings. Patients who receive biannual teeth cleanings are less likely to develop gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Our Manassas, VA family dentist offers the convenience of a one-stop dentist office experience where your whole family can receive high-quality dental health care.

Teeth Cleaning What to Expect
Every patient can expect a gentle, thorough dental cleaning performed by one of our highly trained dental hygienists. Our hygienists will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed before beginning treatment.
Using a gentle hand and technique, the hygienist will use special tools to clean all surfaces of the teeth and gums. Teeth cleanings are designed to remove plaque and tartar buildup from between the teeth and in the gum line.
Most patients experience little to no discomfort during their teeth cleaning. Patients enjoy a refreshed, clean smile after their treatment.
Overcoming Dental Anxiety
Many patients avoid their biannual dental cleanings due to fear of the dentist. Avoiding the dentist can lead to more complicated oral health concerns requiring advanced dental treatments. Routine dental health exams and cleanings can help keep your teeth clean and healthy and may prevent the need for further dental care, meaning less time in the dentist’s chair.
For patients with dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry options. You can receive sedation dentistry even for a routine dental cleaning to help you feel relaxed during your treatment. Dr. Hassan will discuss sedation options with the patients before their procedure. The type of sedation will be selected based on the patient’s health history and personal preference. Our patient’s safety and well-being are our top priority. Our staff monitors all patients closely while sedated.
