Teeth cleaning involves a thorough cleaning of teeth and gums. Through this treatment, you can prevent the progression of gum disease and maintain your oral health.
Its benefits include:
Removal of plaque: The accumulation of tartar and plaque buildup above and below the gum line can lead to gingivitis (a form of gum disease). Even if you follow a proper brushing and flossing routine, it is quite hard to remove bacteria or debris from the gum pockets. However, when you visit us for teeth cleaning, our experienced dentist, Dr. Abelar, will use specialized dental equipment to remove all bacteria and plaque buildup.
Have a healthy smile: Through teeth cleaning, you can get rid of stains over your teeth, which will also improve the esthetics of your smile.
Fresh breath: Bad breath (or halitosis) is an indication or sign that you might be having oral problems like gum disease. With teeth cleaning, you can get that plaque buildup and bacteria removed, which will grant you fresher breath and reduce any chance of future infection.
Your teeth cleaning always begins with a physical examination of your entire mouth. Our dentist makes use of a small mirror-like instrument and a scaler to check the corners and sides of your teeth and gums for any signs of tartar, plaque, or cavities. Then he uses the scalar to remove the impurities carefully.
Once our dentist ensures that your teeth are free of tartar, he will use a gritty toothpaste and an electric brush to perform a deep cleaning of the enamel gently. The dentist would then perform flossing and help you to rinse the oral cavity thoroughly.
