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 overall 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 are ultimately removing hard calculus from the root surface beneath the gum line. The differentiation between the two is evident on a dental x-ray and during gum charting, which is demonstrated by bleeding gums, and 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 known 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.

Importance of Regularly Scheduled Dental Exams
Regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are an incredibly important part of your oral health regimen. Proper oral hygiene is not only an important part of oral health, but it is also an important part of your overall physical health. Periodontal disease and gum infections can be related to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and low birth weights. Regular check-ups and early detection make it possible to catch these problems early.
Brushing and flossing daily is a crucial part of your oral health care routine, but to make sure your teeth remain healthy, scheduling professional teeth cleaning twice a year with our dentist becomes a necessity. If treated early, tooth decay can be averted and repaired back to complete oral health. Here are some other ways that regular teeth cleanings and exams are important for your oral health.
Prevent Gum Disease
Gum disease is an infection that can lead to puffy, sore, bleeding gums that cause bad breath and eventual decay and bone loss if not treated. With decay and deterioration comes eventual tooth loss which should be enough to get anyone into our dentist’s office in East El Paso, TX for a regular check-up.
Prevent Tartar & Plaque Buildup
Build-up is always going to be inevitable despite daily brushing and flossing at home. This is partly due to buildup gathering in hard-to-reach places between teeth and gums. During a professional dental cleaning, your hygienist can thoroughly clean all aspects of your teeth including the hard-to-reach places.
Teeth Look Great After a Cleaning!
During your teeth cleaning the hygienist will polish your teeth helping to fight stains and leave your smile looking vibrant and healthy. Having a great smile is the best way to have confidence and make lasting good first impressions. This will improve your social life, career opportunities, and enhanced relationships with your loved ones.
Save Your Teeth from Future Decay
Prevention today will always be cheaper than costly restorative dental procedures and treatments in the future. Early detection of dental health problems will alert your dentist who can take action before it’s too late and help you avoid extensive dental procedures and expensive bills.
