Dental cleaning: guaranteed quality

by Wildsmile

Dental cleanings are one of the main reasons to visit a dental clinic, as it is advisable to have one per year. But if you have not yet visited your dentist, there is still time, and you can do it for free with a Wildsmile dental plan. What are you waiting for?   


A dental cleaning is a preventive dentistry measure that will help you take care of your oral health without having to resort to surgery or higher-priced treatments.


What does a dental cleaning consist of?


No matter how well you brush your teeth, it will never be enough. Even if you floss or spend several minutes in front of the bathroom mirror, there will always be spaces between your teeth that you have not been able to clean.


Over time this can lead to infections, cavities and dental diseases that will not only cause you pain, but also make you spend more money to heal them.


So the best thing to do is to prevent it and go to your dental cleaning appointment.


Tartar


What accumulates between or under the teeth ends up forming a mineral plaque known as tartar that cannot be removed by brushing and eventually leads to gum disease.   


For this reason, all dentists recommend dental cleaning at least once a year. This can be done by a dentist or a dental hygienist.      


How is a dental cleaning done?


Dental cleaning is a simple process that consists of two phases.


Firstly, there is the scraping phase, in which tartar and plaque are removed. This is done using very simple tools and sometimes ultrasound to avoid damaging the tooth.


The second step is to polish the teeth, as they are rarely completely smooth due to the accumulation of tartar, and the tooth itself has natural irregularities. The purpose of this phase is obviously aesthetic, as it leaves the teeth smooth, shiny and stain-free, but also health-related, as the smoother teeth prevent plaque from adhering.


Prices of a dental cleaning


The price of a dental cleaning varies depending on the clinic you go to. Before choosing the clinic where you will have your teeth cleaned, we recommend that you research the experiences of other patients, as well as the professional background of the dentists at the clinic.


At Wildsmile we have dental clinics in different cities in Spain and Portugal with dentists and hygienists with a long professional career. In addition, this and other preventive treatments such as fluoride application, x-rays, and dental check-ups are completely free with our dental plan.


If you become a Wildsmile member you could save over 50% on most of our treatments. Call us and ask for our exclusive prices. TO LEARN MORE, CLICK HERE
