What Should I Do Between Dental Visits?

Be sure to take care of your teeth and gums between regular dental visits. Plaque is always forming on your teeth, but you can manage it by brushing and flossing regularly.

What’s Right For Me? A Deep Cleaning Or A Regular Cleaning?

Preventive Cleaning

A dental hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar from your teeth using a special instrument. Then, your teeth will be cleaned, polished, and flossed. Preventive cleanings are meant for those who do not have excessive plaque or tartar build-up on their teeth. If a patient is found to have more build-up than what can be taken care of by a preventive cleaning, they will be referred for a deep cleaning instead.

Deep Cleaning

A deep cleaning is not necessary for every patient. You will be informed by your dental care team if you require one. It is a special type of cleaning that is focused on eliminating the excessive build-up of bacteria that causes gum disease. If you have gingivitis or a more severe case of gum disease, you will need a deep cleaning. The roots of your teeth will also be smoothed to eliminate pockets of bacteria.
