What Are Teeth Cleanings?
During a regular teeth cleaning appointment, our dental hygienist starts by examining your teeth and gums for any signs of issues. Then, they use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque around the gumline. You can reduce how long this part takes by brushing and flossing regularly. After removing the tartar, our hygienist uses a specialty electric toothbrush to clean your teeth. From there, she will floss your teeth, rinse your mouth, and possibly apply a fluoride treatment. It is common for the dentist to take a look at your mouth either before or after the cleaning to make sure the hygienist didn’t miss anything.
A deep teeth cleaning or periodontal scaling and root planning (SRP) is for patients who have a gum inflammation due to tartar buildup. It helps control the inflammation, promoting healing and preventing future issues. This procedure involves the dentist using a hand-held scaler to scrape plaque off your teeth manually. This is done both below and above the gumline.
Another method is to use a specialty ultrasonic tool that has a vibrating metal tip. The root planing is more similar to a rubbing motion that smooths out any rough spots on the teeth. This process encourages your clean, healthy gums to reattach to the teeth if they have pulled away slightly.
Benefits of Cleaning Your Teeth
Don’t Put Yourself at Risk of Cavities and Gum Disease
If you skip your regular teeth cleanings, you risk having too much plaque and tartar buildup. Remember, only your dentist or hygienist can remove tartar. That plaque and tartar can lead to a range of mouth problems, from cavities to losing teeth if left too long.
If the pockets separating your gums and teeth become too large, you can lose too much of your connective tissues in this area. That can eventually lead to tooth loss.
Keep Your Mouth Clean and Healthy
Both regular and deep cleanings help prevent cavities by removing plaque and tartar. This also helps you keep all your teeth, reducing the need for future dental treatments.
Deep cleanings are particularly helpful at reducing the size of your mouth’s pockets and potentially saving your teeth. They can bring infections under control, giving you peace of mind and even protecting your overall health.
Visiting us for teeth cleanings can also give you overall peace of mind. After all, if there are any potential issues forming in your mouth, we are likely to see them. This can be something as simple as warning you about a potential future cavity and cleaning the area. Or it might be spotting the need for a root canal or an infection that needs treating. It also lets us spot oral cancer early on, dramatically improving your chances of successful treatment.
