About Our Professional Teeth Cleanings
Below you will find what our professional teeth cleanings entail.
Regular Cleanings vs. Dental Cleanings
Traditional methods of brushing, flossing and scrubbing cannot fight the germs and bacteria of today. It is highly important that you go to a dental office to get your teeth cleaned, or all of the bacteria might cause problems later on.
There are three steps:
Polishing: When your teeth are power brushed with a grainy paste to remove surface stains.
Scaling: When special tools are used to remove tartar build up from your gums.
Flossing: When all the debris stuck between your teeth is removed.
Our dentist recommends a professional teeth cleaning every six months. However, if the condition of your teeth demands extra care and attention, our dentist will talk to you about the number of sessions needed to get your problem resolved.
Importance of Professional Teeth Cleanings
The process of teeth cleaning involves the maintenance of oral hygiene. This is done by removing plaque and providing protection against cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Some people resort to household remedies and basic routine methods of teeth cleaning without feeling the need to go to a dental office. It is important to stress that teeth-cleaning is not only essential for healthy teeth, but also for the health of the entire body.
Teeth-cleaning is a significant element of your dental health, because it holds the potential to prevent serious health risks such as diabetes, dementia, and also cardiovascular disease.
