A dental cleaning, also known as a prophylaxis or teeth cleaning, is a routine dental procedure that involves removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Plaque is a thin film of bacteria that forms on the teeth, and tartar is a hardened form of plaque that can only be removed by a dental professional. If left untreated, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

After the cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist may apply fluoride to the teeth to help strengthen the enamel and prevent cavities. They may also provide instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home, including brushing and flossing techniques.

Dental cleanings in Marbella are an important part of maintaining good oral hygiene and are typically recommended every six months to one year, depending on an individual's oral health needs.

At R&H DENTAL our dental cleaning appointments are blocked off for an entire hour with our dental hygienist, this leaves plenty of time for an excellent cleaning, as well as oral hygiene instruction.  Many patients leave saying how that was the best dental cleaning of their life!


Getting a dental cleaning every 6 months is important for several reasons:


  1. Preventing Tooth Decay: Dental cleanings can help remove plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth, which can lead to tooth decay if left untreated. Regular cleanings can help prevent cavities and keep your teeth healthy.

  2. Preventing Gum Disease: If plaque and tartar are not removed, they can lead to gum disease, which can cause serious oral health problems. Regular cleanings can help prevent gum disease and keep your gums healthy.

  3. Early Detection of Oral Problems: During a dental cleaning, your dentist can also check for any signs of oral problems such as cavities, gum disease, or even oral cancer. Early detection of these issues can help prevent more serious problems in the future.

  4. Fresh Breath: A dental cleaning can help remove bacteria that cause bad breath, leaving your mouth feeling clean and fresh.

Overall, getting a dental cleaning every 6 months is an important part of maintaining good oral health. By preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral problems, you can avoid more serious dental procedures and maintain a healthy smile.
