Teeth Cleaning Options
Below, you will find information that will help you understand the benefits of our teeth cleanings and what to expect when having them performed by our dentist.
You can expect to receive a comprehensive dental examination during your first appointment to determine the current state of your teeth and gums. Also, if you have any dental records, they will be reviewed by our dentist to establish the current state of your teeth and monitor your progress during treatment.
Types of Professional Teeth Cleanings
There are several kinds of teeth cleanings. Our dentist will perform a regular cleaning to eliminate the tartar and plaque buildup. You might need an additional or a different kind of cleaning depending on your current oral health. After your oral examination, our dentist will determine which method suits you best.
Here are the different types of teeth cleanings we offer:
If you have a buildup of tartar, plaque under the gums, bleeding gums, sensitive gums or deep gum pockets, our dentist will suggest deep cleanings. Our dentist uses tools that accurately target these types of dental issues.
Once you have undergone a deep cleaning, our dentist will recommend periodontal maintenance. Continuing maintenance on your oral health is essential, as gum disease or plaque can reappear. Additionally, periodontal maintenance removes tartar and plaque from below and above the gum line, deep cleans your teeth and is followed up by teeth polishing.
Full Mouth Debridement
Full mouth debridement eliminates hard tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums. Our dentist will recommend this teeth cleaning procedure if a regular teeth cleaning does not work.
A regular cleaning consists of our dentist eliminating stains, tartar and plaque from your teeth. For patients with gum health issues, our dentist may recommend frequent visits for teeth cleaning.
Professional Teeth Cleanings Advantages
While having an oral hygiene routine at home is necessary to ensure a healthy mouth, there are many benefits that you can obtain from professional cleanings. Some benefits of our teeth cleanings are:
Bad Breath Prevention
Professional cleanings, as mentioned before, help you preserve your oral health. Sometimes, brushing regularly is not enough to prevent bad breath. However, professional cleanings could help you achieve fresh breath and a beautiful smile.
Plaque is one of several reasons for tooth decay. When plaque is not removed regularly, the buildup could result in cavities and weakening of the enamel.
The stains on teeth are typically caused by smoking, wine, tea, coffee, etc. However, these stains can be prevented or reduced with the help of routine teeth cleanings.
Tooth Loss Prevention
When gum disease spreads due to plaque, it may damage the bone support in the jaw, resulting in loose teeth and potential tooth loss. This is one of the many reasons why periodical teeth cleanings are beneficial for your oral health.
Several findings have determined a link between overall health and oral health. Regular teeth cleanings performed at our dentist’s office can result in better overall wellness.
Periodic Teeth Cleanings
Depending on the current condition of your oral health, our dentist will decide how frequently you should schedule an appointment for professional teeth cleaning.
