A professional cleaning will remove all plaque build-up around and under the gum line, including stains on teeth. Cleanings are recommended at least once every six months to promote and maintain healthy gums and bone level. In more diseased cases, cleanings are recommended once every 3-4 months to help control the disease from progressing.
Gingivitis is inflammation of the gums due to plaque and build-up on the teeth and along or under the gum line. Signs of gingivitis are red, puffy gums that bleed easily when brushed or flossed. The good news is that the inflammation is reversible once all the plaque and build-up are removed during a dental cleaning, but only if followed by good oral hygiene habits at home. It is very important that teeth are kept clean at home in addition to getting a professional cleaning.
Periodontitis is the loss of attachment around teeth, involving bone loss or gingival recession, due to plaque build-up and inflammation. In such cases, professional cleanings are recommended once every 3-4 months. Unfortunately, periodontitis is not reversible but it can be controlled with frequent cleanings and very good oral hygiene.
We all know that good oral hygiene keeps your teeth looking clean and shiny, but did you know that it’s also essential to your overall health? It’s true, poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.
That’s why dentists recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally twice a year. Teeth cleaning is the removal of dental plaque and tartar in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. The average dental cleaning is a routine procedure that is rarely painful and takes 30 to 45 minutes.
