The Importance of Professional Teeth Cleaning

professional teeth Cleaning

The first line of defense in maintaining optimal oral health is a steady and regular regimen of daily brushing and flossing. Although this advice has been drilled into everybody’s head since childhood, it is a timeless piece of wisdom that has been proven time and time again. And despite the warnings that one’s oral health will suffer if this formula isn’t followed throughout a person’s lifetime, some still continue to challenge or disregard this advice at their peril.

Yet, despite having taken immaculate care of one’s teeth over the course of his or her life, there is still always a need for preventative maintenance, and, occasionally, some minor repair work to be done. One of the most important procedures that needs to be accomplished on a regular basis, as any dentist will tell you, is a routine cleaning. Brushing and flossing twice a day is an important habit to have, but regular professional cleanings- no matter how excellent your state of oral health- are essential and recommended.

Many people don’t realize that professional cleanings don’t simply help retain the whiteness and sparkle of one’s teeth, but also to determine the state of one’s gums, and to maintain superb periodontal health.

Occasionally, a patient needs a more extensive cleaning, knows as deep cleaning, or “Root Planning and Scaling.” Root Planning and Scaling is one of the most effective ways to clean between the gums and teeth, mainly to remove tartar and plaque that’s gathered below the gum line over time. It is done when gums have started to pull away from the teeth and have tartar (hard minerals) on them.

Thus, it is of utmost importance for everyone of every age to have a routine cleaning every six months for optimal dental health or as recommended by your dentist in Century City.
