Most people know that in order to preserve a healthy and beautiful smile, proper dental hygiene is a must. Good dental hygiene, which includes brushing and flossing twice daily, makes a huge difference in preventing unwanted tooth decay. However, brushing and flossing is not all required to keep your mouth healthy. Dr. Rajpal recommends a regular dental cleaning every 3 to 4 months to maintain a healthy smile. If you haven’t undergone a professional dental cleaning in a few months, we encourage you to schedule a consultation today.
What is Professional Teeth Cleaning?
Professional dental cleanings eliminate the plaque, bacteria, and tartar in teeth that brushing and flossing cannot prevent. You need regular professional teeth cleaning to prevent the accumulation of bacteria, which can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. During a professional deep cleaning, dentists perform scaling and root planing, where calculus beneath the gums is accessed to restore the health of the surrounding tissues. When patients practice good oral hygiene and undergo regular dental cleanings, their teeth (and body) remain healthy.
More Than Just a Healthy Mouth
Dental hygiene and regular teeth cleaning help more than just a patient’s dental health. Good dental health benefits your entire body’s health. The mouth is an intrinsically connected part of the body, and oral health can’t be separated from overall health. If you suffer from bacterial infections and gum disease, the harmful bacteria can also enter your bloodstream and cause numerous systemic issues, such as heart disease, bone loss, stroke, and high blood pressure. Dental cleanings are a quick and simple routine practice that keeps your smile and your body happy and healthy.
The Teeth Cleaning Procedure
Standard teeth cleaning involves scaling the teeth and examining the patient’s oral health. Often, x-rays are taken before the cleaning so the dentist can identify any underlying dental problems. After scaling, Dr. Rajpal uses special instruments and x-rays to examine the patient’s teeth and determine if the patient needs follow-up treatments, such as fillings, root canals, etc. Regular dental cleaning allows the dentist to identify and treat dental problems at the earliest stage before they can affect your oral health significantly.
