A dental cleaning is part of an annual dental check-up, which should be done at least once a year, if not twice. Even if you believe your teeth are clean, a thorough examination by a dental professional is essential to be certain, as the early stages of gum disease are frequently difficult to detect. Discount Dental in Pasco, WA, offers professional dental cleanings to assure the quality of your oral hygiene and to keep your teeth functioning and looking their best.
Who Would Need Teeth Cleaning?
This treatment is available to everyone at least once a year. These procedures should be done every six months, according to your dentist. These therapies are best appropriate for youngsters who are predisposed to cavities.
Types of Dental Cleaning
Regular Dental Cleaning
Routine dental cleanings will aid in the removal of stains, tartar, and plaque from the surface of your teeth as well as beneath the gum line.
Following the treatment of your gum disease with a deep dental cleaning, we will proceed with your periodontal care as a follow-up for your scheduled cleanings. Your tooth roots, gums, and jawbones will be our primary emphasis.
Root Planing and Periodontal Scaling
While routine teeth cleaning is adequate for healthy teeth, people with gum disease require a deep dental cleaning to treat concerns beneath the gum line. Periodontal scaling and root planing are other terms for deep teeth cleaning treatments. We will thoroughly clear out the plaque buildup and smooth any exposed root surfaces during the process.
Why Is Dental Cleaning Required?
Dental cleanings can help you identify tough areas of your mouth that may need special attention and care. Plaque can form here and cause irritation, infections, or gum disease.
Standard professional teeth cleanings not only help remove plaque buildup from your teeth but also allow our trained dentist to detect further dental issues during the regular evaluation performed before the cleaning.
Advantages of Routine Dental Cleanings
- Plaque removal is the removal of a sticky substance containing harmful germs that cause your enamel to crumble and harm your gums.
- Cleaning stains caused by coffee, tea, or other foods and beverages on your teeth
- Removal of possibly dangerous tartar and plaque from behind your gum line
- Receding gums, chipped or cracked teeth, and potentially severe dental infections can all be detected.
