How long does a teeth cleaning take?

Professional teeth cleaning in Audubon, NJ, can take up to an hour, sometimes longer. It really depends on the amount of tartar that has collected on the teeth since your last teeth cleaning. Your hygienist may also uncover issues to share with the dentist, which can mean a longer teeth cleaning session.

The teeth cleaning itself is straightforward and noninvasive. Some patients even consider it relaxing.

The American Dental Association and most dentists recommend two teeth cleanings per year. Following this schedule and excellent oral hygiene between teeth cleanings typically means less time in the dental chair.

Professional teeth cleanings are part of preventive dentistry, which includes:

  • Checkup or oral health exam
  • Periodic x-rays as needed
  • Oral cancer screenings

As a rule, regular preventive maintenance in the dental office lowers your risks for preventable oral health conditions like:

  • Cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Gum disease
  • Oral infections
  • Bad breath
  • Tooth discoloration
