Even if you brush and floss your teeth daily, it’s important that you have your teeth professionally cleaned at Celebrity Smiles on a regular basis. Of course, if you aren’t quite so meticulous about your oral hygiene, it’s even more important! After a thorough cleaning, your teeth will feel brand new and a few shades brighter. Teeth cleaning isn’t just for aesthetic effect, it also helps keep your teeth and over all wellness healthier.
Teeth Cleaning & Deep Cleaning
Regular teeth cleanings help to remove hard calculus and bacteria from the surfaces of the teeth. Deep cleaning or Scaling and Root planing is ultimately removing hard calculus from the root surface beneath the gum line. The differentiation between the two is evident on dental x-ray and during gum charting, which is demonstrated by bleeding gums, deep, inflamed, and swollen periodontal pockets.
Scaling and Root Planing more commonly known as Deep Cleaning is a treatment required by patients who have missed a few routine hygiene appointments and have accumulated plaque and bacteria under the gums. The result can be bone loss and the recession of your gums, which is then followed by growing teeth sensitivity. This condition is more commonly knows as Gum Disease or Periodontal Disease also known as Periodontitis or Gingivitis.
It is very important to maintain your routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings, because at these routine appointments, the bacteria can be stopped at an early stage to prevent further damage to teeth and gums.
In order to maintain healthy teeth, visit our dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and maintain good oral hygiene habits. Not only will your teeth be stronger, but you’ll also leave with an amazing smile.
