Why Should You Get a Teeth Cleaning from a Professional?

Most people only go to the dentist when they have a problem. It is unfortunate because visiting the dentist for a teeth cleaning is one of the most important things you can do for your oral health. Teeth cleaning from a professional can help remove plaque and tartar build-up.

It can also help prevent gum disease and other dental problems. This blog post will discuss the importance of getting professional teeth cleanings and why you should make an appointment with your dentist today.

Types of Dental Cleanings

It's essential to have your teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist twice per year. Dental hygiene can be maintained, but plaque will always build up if you are not careful about brushing and flossing daily or using dental care products like mouthwash after every meal.

There are different types of cleanings available: -
  • Prophylaxis - To keep your teeth clean and healthy, it is recommended that you have professional teeth cleaning done every 8-16 weeks. The process includes removing the built-up plaque, which cannot be removed by brushing at home well enough on its own due to our busy lifestyles today with work schedules, etcetera.
  • Full Mouth Debridement - If you have been neglecting your dental hygiene, it's time to take care of those pearly whites. Full mouth debridement is necessary for people with a significant amount or even minimal tartar build-up in different areas throughout their mouths; otherwise, they could have toothaches later down the line.
  • Gingival Bacterial Reduction - Laser light will be used in a procedure to kill bacteria that are causing gum disease. This, along with the cleaning process for treating gingivitis (puffy, red, and bleeding), makes this professional cleaner ideal.
  • Site specific laser therapy When the bacterial infection affects both your gums and bone, the laser light will be used to attack these colonies of bacteria deep within gum pockets. This therapy can only treat mild cases, so you should see a dentist if it worsens or does not improve after two appointments.
  • Periodontal maintenance - Teeth cleaning is necessary for maintaining your dental health. It would help if you went in for teeth cleanings every 8/10/12 weeks to ensure that no signs or symptoms suggest more significant problems like an infection on a top priority basis.
Final Thoughts

You must schedule regular dental cleanings, whether your teeth are in perfect shape. Plaque build-up on the surface can lead to cavities and other problems with oral hygiene if left unchecked for too long! Therefore, you should book an appointment every six months - even if there doesn't seem like much plaque present when we check it during our visits; these checks will help us determine how often cleaning needs to be adjusted depending upon what type of treatment option works best suited towards individual requirements.
