Have you had your teeth cleaned recently? Regular cleanings is the most effective way to eliminate plaque and tartar build-up from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the beverages we drink over time that regular brushing and flossing can miss. Dental professionals offer several options for teeth cleaning: traditional, laser, and deep cleaning.
Traditional cleaning is what most people think of when they envision a dental cleaning. Special tools are used to scrape and clean the teeth, removing dental deposits.
A laser teeth cleaning is another option gaining popularity. The technique is often referred to as ultrasonic cleaning and more comfortable than a traditional cleaning. An ultrasonic scaler is used to comfortably clean the teeth – killing bacteria and microbes while removing deposits.
A deep cleaning is a thorough two-part cleaning process that is medically indicated when a traditional cleaning and a laser cleaning won’t adhere to adequate dental health. Deep cleaning provides all of the benefits of a traditional dental cleaning, plus it helps restore gum health and prevent periodontal disease.
