Protective Measures Provided By Advanced Dental Cleanings

Every time you go in for a routine dental checkup, a portion of your appointment is dedicated to your professional dental cleaning. If you want to protect your smile against tartar, and make sure your hard-to-reach areas are being kept safe, these sessions are highly important. However, this is not the only professional cleaning a patient might undergo. If you are showing signs of poor gum health, your dentist can recommend an ultrasonic scaling. During this procedure, the spaces underneath your gum line are treated, so that bacteria causing periodontal issues are eliminated. This is not necessary at every appointment, but it can stop your condition before you develop periodontitis, which can be devastating to your oral health.

Undergoing A Professional Teeth Cleaning During Your Routine Dental Exam

Each time you come in for preventive care, you can look forward to a professional teeth cleaning from your hygienist. Your teeth will be carefully, but thoroughly cleaned, with special attention given to any signs of tartar. By performing these cleanings regularly, your hygienist can keep you safe from dental troubles in areas of your teeth you may have a hard time cleaning through brushing and flossing. Tartar removal is also important, as you the substance can persist even when you practice careful preventive care at home.

Undergoing An Ultrasonic Scaling To Address Periodontal Troubles

An ultrasonic scaling is a more involved procedure than a standard dental cleaning, as it involves accessing areas of your teeth hidden by your gum line. When you undergo this treatment, you can eliminate bacteria causing gingivitis. Stopping a periodontal infection at this stage is important, as your oral care can be seriously compromised by an advanced infection, known as periodontitis.
