From drinking, eating, to even speaking, your teeth are very important. So it is important for you to be vigilant with oral healthcare including teeth cleaning and gum disease prevention.
Over time, teeth will accumulate plaque and tartar build up, so it’s important to keep things clean. Although daily brushing and flossing is important, getting a bi-annual teeth cleaning at our office is necessary for preventing mouth diseases and other dental issues that could become big problems later on. We recommend coming to see our Raleigh dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and preventative exams, but there are a number of other measures you can take at home to help prevent dental disease, which has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and other conditions.
Deep Teeth Cleaning in Raleigh
Has it been awhile since your last teeth cleaning? Are you experiencing pain, bleeding gums, bad breath, or swollen gums? If so, call our office today to schedule a scaling and root planing or deep cleaning to slow down the effects of periodontal disease. With a deep cleaning, we can remove the damaging bacterial deposits that can destroy your teeth’s support structures including tooth root, soft tissues, and jawbone.
The Benefits of Deep Cleaning for Your Teeth include:
Tartar or calculus is a term for plaque builds up on your teeth. Over time, the plaque can build up above and below the gumline, which can result in future oral issues including periodontal disease. Even though proper hygiene, brushing, and flossing are helpful in preventing plaque, it doesn’t remove all the debris, bacteria, deposits, and food from your gum pockets beneath the gumline, so a deep cleaning is needed on a regular basis to remove those items.
Halitosis or bad breath is a big indicator of advancing form periodontal disease because there is usually a combination of rotting food debris and gum infection that can result in bad breath. However, this can be prevented with a routine visit to your Raleigh general dentistry and family dentist, Six Forks Smiles.
