Dentists recommend a professional clean every 6 months.
Teeth cleaning removes plaque and other substances which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. A professional clean can be a lot more effective than cleaning at home, and dentists may offer a range of options including Air-Flow teeth cleaning which uses high pressure air to remove tough stains.
Most dentists recommend getting a professional clean at least 1 to 2 times per year. Teeth cleaning can also help dentists to identify problems such as tooth decay. The dentist may also use this time to show patients how to adequately brush and floss their teeth.
Everyone should get a professional teeth clean at least once a year

Before cleaning begins, a dental hygienist will normally conduct a lymph node examination around the face and jaw to check for swelling and infection.
BEFORE TEETH CLEANING ABROAD
The dental hygienist will begin the procedure using a device to remove the tartar deposits on the teeth, before using a hand scaling device to go between the teeth and into the recesses. The next stage is the polish, with a polishing paste, to remove tooth stains. Finally, the hygienist will floss the teeth to ensure that there are no small parts in between them. For more rigorous cleaning, which may be necessary for patients with gum disease, or for patients who have not undergone thorough dental cleaning for some time, it may be necessary to clean the top parts of the teeth's roots. For this, a local anesthetic is administered.
Some hygienists will use fluoridation as well as normal polishing paste.
Local anesthetic for very extensive cleaning.
The Teeth Cleaning takes 30 to 60 minutes.
