Professional Teeth Cleanings
Teeth cleaning is a simple and painless process that is performed by a dental hygienist in under an hour. We do everything we can to provide a stress-free environment for this procedure because we understand the apprehension surrounding the process. Biannual cleanings are crucial to ensure the health and longevity of your smile by removing potential tartar and plaque buildup from the surface of your teeth. During your visit, we will also check for any dark spots on your teeth as well as the health of your gums.
The process of screening for gum disease is quite simple. We recommend getting your gums screened twice a year as a preventative measure. Screening for gum disease takes place in our office and we start by inspecting your gums for any redness or puffiness. We will also determine if your gums have started to recede and in some cases will take a dental x-ray to view your jaw bone structure underneath your gums. Gum disease screenings are a great test to detect the early stages of gum disease and contribute to early diagnosis which can lead to the possibility of early treatment.
Gum disease will occur when the gums surrounding your teeth become infected. Plaque, a sticky form of bacteria, will develop on the teeth and will form toxins that damage gums. Once infected, they can lead to various health issues such as tender gums, tooth loss, bone deterioration, and bite changes. The best way to prevent gum disease is to practice good oral hygiene at home and regularly schedule cleaning and gum screening visits.
