A regular cleaning involves your dentist eliminating stains, tartar, and plaque from your teeth. For patients with gum health issues, your dentist may recommend frequent visits (more than twice a year) for teeth cleaning.
If you have tartar buildup, plaque under the gums, bleeding gums, sensitive gums, deep gum pockets, or have been diagnosed with Periodontal Disease, your dentist will use tools to properly target these issues. Professional cleanings at least two times a year are critical, as gum disease or plaque can reappear.
Full mouth debridement eliminates hard tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums. Our dentist will recommend this teeth cleaning procedure if a regular tooth cleaning doesn't work and additional cleaning is needed.
