  • How long does a teeth cleaning take?

    At Omaha Healthy Smiles, a typical teeth cleaning session lasts between 45 to 60 minutes. During this time, our skilled dental hygienists meticulously clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing can’t reach. This thorough clean not only enhances your oral hygiene but also gives you a brighter, healthier smile.

  • How long after teeth cleaning can I eat?

    You can eat immediately after your cleaning session; however, if you’ve received a fluoride treatment, we recommend waiting about 30 minutes before eating or drinking. This ensures the fluoride fully binds to the enamel of your teeth, maximizing its protective benefits.

  • How often should I get a dental checkup?

    We recommend scheduling a dental checkup and cleaning at Omaha Healthy Smiles every six months. Regular checkups allow us to monitor your oral health and quickly address any issues. We may suggest more frequent visits for some patients with specific dental needs, such as gum disease, to ensure optimal oral health.

    Dental emergencies can happen to anyone, but patients who commit to regular preventive care tend to have fewer problems over time. Our registered dental hygienists provide professional cleanings that help prevent issues. Even if you brush and floss regularly, mineralized plaque deposits known as tartar can still form in certain areas of your teeth, creating a suitable environment for millions of harmful bacteria to thrive. If left unchecked, these bacteria can produce toxins that harm your gums and even cause tooth loss.

    By visiting us periodically, we can gently remove the deposits from your teeth, preventing bacterial tartar from causing irreversible damage. We also use professional-strength polishing paste to gently buff away stains and microscopic plaque, leaving your teeth ultra-smooth and shiny. Discoloration settles into the enamel of your teeth over time, but professional cleaning can help slow down yellowing while maintaining a smooth surface for better cleansing.
