Why Teeth Cleaning is Important

The best dental hygiene routine cannot guarantee your teeth are completely clear of germs and tartar. Toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash, and rinses can only do so much. In fact, being too aggressive in your regimen can do more harm than good. Our teeth cannot shed their surfaces the way skin can. The gives an opportunity for harmful bacteria to attach to the teeth and remain there for periods of time. If not completely removed by brushing, flossing, and rinsing, bacteria become a biofilm known as plaque. Plaque collecting unchecked near the gum line will harden and begin destroying teeth and gums due to intense bacterial activity. A professional cleaning is the best way to eliminate biofilm and the beginnings of plaque.

What are Regular Dental Cleanings?

Regular dental cleanings usually go hand in hand with a comprehensive oral exam or a regular (recall) evaluation.  Once the exam has been completed, unless your dentist has diagnosed gum disease, the dentist or hygienist will perform a regular cleaning, or prophylaxis.  For individuals with gum disease, your dentist will recommend a deep cleaning to treat the issue and allow your mouth to heal.
