Most people are familiar with plaque and the need to keep it at bay. But they also need to know that having annual cleanings are one of the best ways to rid the teeth of plaque, and some of these procedures to battle plaque cannot be done at home. At Dent-Care Dental, our Jackson Heights best dentist performs a variety of cleaning procedures as well as periodontal cleanings for patients. Dental cleanings are done in order to clear the mouth of bacteria and prevent plaque and tartar from building up.
During cleanings our instruments allow us to get in places where regular brushes cannot, such as under the gums. Another procedure our Jackson Heights best dentist does is a periodontal cleaning. A periodontal cleaning is done when there is severe gum loss or gum disease and the pockets of the gums have deepened and inside the flaps where bacteria hides. The purpose of this kind of cleaning is to try to save the teeth from gum disease relieving the swelling and inflammation that gum disease causes, allowing the mouth to heal and feel better. Over time, with good hygiene and regular cleanings, the gum disease can be reversed.
A periodontal cleaning is done as needed, or to control gum disease over a period of time. Each cleaning is done to completely rid all pockets of bacteria.
