Teeth Cleaning, Downtown Dental Los Angeles
At Downtown Dental in Los Angeles, our team is here to assist individuals with a wide range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry procedures. Dr. Don Mungcal and his staff are dedicated to helping patients in their community achieve better oral health and wellness. This starts with routine teeth cleanings.

What are teeth cleanings?

Professional teeth cleanings are performed to maintain the health of the smile. These teeth cleanings not only remove food particles from the teeth and gums, but they can remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar from all the surfaces of the teeth. When done regularly, patients can enjoy beautiful, brilliant, and healthy-looking smiles.

How are teeth cleanings performed?

Teeth cleanings are performed by our dental hygienists who will rinse the teeth. The dental hygienist then applies professional-strength gels to the teeth and gums and uses a specialized device to clean the teeth. Our team also provides flossing for our patients to remove food particles that may be stuck in between the teeth in the tight crevices. Once this has been done, the teeth are polished and ready for the dentist to inspect.

What else is done during a routine visit to the dentist?

Teeth cleaning is just one aspect of a recall appointment with Dr. Don Mungcal. Additionally, patients may undergo an evaluation with our team to look for signs of periodontal disease or tooth decay. Patients often have x-rays done on a regular basis to evaluate the health of the bone and to look for areas of decay that may be present well beneath the surface. This is a terrific way to diagnose issues that may not be seen with the naked eye during evaluations. When the dentist evaluates the smile, he will also look for signs of oral cancer or any other condition that can negatively impact one's oral health and wellness.

Who is a candidate for teeth cleanings?

Benefit from teeth cleanings, Downtown Dental Los Angeles
Everyone can benefit from teeth cleanings. They should be done regularly as recommended by our dental hygienists to improve and maintain oral health and wellness over the long-term. Teeth cleaning is just one aspect of preventative dental care for patients to consider when they are interested in addressing oral health concerns.

When should teeth cleanings be performed? Our team at Downtown Dental encourages patients to have their teeth cleaned each time they visit, at least during their recall appointments with Dr. Don Mungcal. This ensures proactive care of the teeth and gums as well as the ability for any problems to be diagnosed early enough for effective intervention. If patients come into our practice for any other concerns, we may suggest a dental cleaning if it appears to be necessary.

Is teeth cleaning expensive?

Not at all! In fact, most of our patients have their teeth cleaning covered by their dental insurance, either in part or full, which makes it extremely attainable for many of our patients.

Can teeth cleaning harm the enamel of the teeth?

Absolutely not. Teeth cleaning is done to achieve better oral health and does not have a negative impact on the surfaces of the teeth. Instead, it cleans the surfaces, removes impurities from the enamel and between the teeth, and helps patients to maintain their oral health and wellness when performed regularly.
