Teeth Cleaning
Pearl City, HI


Model of teeth cleaning using a titanium dental pick Oahu Pediatric Dentistry in Pearl City, HIAs time goes by, our teeth can start to turn brown or yellow.

However, this type of discoloring is triggered by things such as unhealthy eating, smoking, and drinking certain types of beverages. For every practice of the habits mentioned above, there are some consequences on oral health.

Your teeth will start discoloring, not only the outer surface but also the inner surface of your teeth structure. However, the good news is by changing your oral health habits; you can keep your teeth from becoming stained.

By maintaining good dental hygiene, you can maintain your white teeth. Below are some dental cleaning techniques that you should include in your daily routine.

At Oahu Pediatric Dentistry you will find the right dentists to guide you on overall oral health and keep your teeth white.

Brushing After Drinking and Eating


The easiest way to maintain good oral health and to keep your white teeth is by regular brushing.

Most people brush their teeth twice daily because they were asked to do that by their dentist. That is not a bad thing to do, but dental hygiene should be done after every meal.

If you or your child are an individual who consumes unhealthy meals or maybe can go a day without brushing, then you should brush more often. You can purchase portable dental kits to carry your toothpaste and brush at your convenience.

Resisting some habits can also help your oral hygiene. Some of these include drinking juice or soda daily.

However, if you find it hard to stop, then some tips, such as using a straw for drinking soda, can help you cut contact between your teeth or your child's teeth and the drink.

Getting regular dental cleanings is also advisable for the health of gums and teeth.

Flossing Daily


Flossing your teeth seems like an extra task for most individuals. However, it can be the best way to eliminate plaque left behind even after brushing your teeth.

Dentists recommend brushing teeth after meals and flossing at least once daily. Flossing helps you reach crevices and nooks that brushing cannot. Make sure you know the right way to floss your teeth because if done the wrong way, it will not be beneficial.

Flossing your teeth can be done either at night or during the daytime, whichever way you find convenient for you.

Use of Baking Soda


Baking soda has been used for dental cleaning for many years and can be used as an additive to your choice of toothpaste for brushing your teeth.

You only need a tablespoon to measure and put it in a bowl before sprinkling it over the toothpaste on your toothbrush.

When mixing your baking soda, ensure that you are using only a little amount of it because it is abrasive.

Professional Cleaning


Although you might be doing all of the above, professional dental cleanings are recommended to ensure that you are doing everything the right way.

You also need a regular dental checkup for other oral health matters apart from cleaning your teeth.

It is recommended that persons with good oral hygiene and without gum disease see the dentist at least twice a year for continued oral health and as a preventative measure.

During a professional cleaning appointment we may also run initial x-rays, to see below the surface of the teeth, and perform a dental exam to check for any abnormalities.

Whether adult teeth or baby teeth it is important to maintain your oral health and teeth cleaning is a significant part of that.
