What You Can Expect From Your Initial Exam
Once you visit our dental office, our dentist will conduct a comprehensive dental examination to determine the current state of your oral health. Also, they will review your dental records to monitor your progress and advise you to make any changes that might improve your oral health.
Types of Professional Teeth Cleanings
There are different types of teeth cleanings. When you visit our dental office, our dentist will perform a regular cleaning to eliminate the tartar and plaque buildup in your mouth. However, you might need an additional or alternate cleaning depending on the current state of your oral health. After your examination, our dentist will determine which method is better for you.
Listed below are the different types of teeth cleanings that we offer:
A regular cleaning involves 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.
Our dentist will suggest deep cleanings if you have symptoms like buildup of tartar and plaque under the gums, bleeding gums, sensitive gums, deep gum pockets, etc. Our dentist uses tools that properly target these dental problems.
Full Mouth Debridement
Our dentist will recommend this teeth cleaning procedure if a regular teeth cleaning does not work for you. Full mouth debridement removes hard tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums.
Our dentist will recommend periodontal maintenance after you have undergone a treatment like deep cleaning. Periodontal maintenance removes tartar and plaque from below and above the gum line, deep cleans your teeth and it is followed up by teeth polishing.
Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleanings
As mentioned before, the teeth cleaning process is crucial for maintaining your oral health. Some benefits of our teeth cleanings are as follows:
Numerous studies have determined a link between overall health and oral health. Regular teeth cleanings performed by our dentist can improve your overall wellness.
Bad Breath Prevention
Professional cleanings, as we already know, help maintain your oral health. Good oral health means fresh breath and a beautiful smile.
Plaque is one of the several reasons for tooth decay. If plaque is not removed regularly, the build-up could cause cavities and enamel deterioration.
Tooth Loss Prevention
When gum disease spreads due to plaque, it may damage the bone support in the jaw. This causes loose teeth and eventual tooth loss. This is another reason why regular teeth cleanings are beneficial for your oral health.
The stains on teeth are typically caused by smoking, wine, tea, coffee, etc. However, these stains can be prevented or reduced with routine teeth cleanings.
Frequency of Teeth Cleaning
Depending on the current state of your oral health, our dentist will determine how frequently you should schedule an appointment for a professional teeth cleaning.
