In order to keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is very important that you keep your teeth clean. At our dental practice, Dent-Care Dental, LLC, you can receive either a regular teeth cleaning in 11104 or a periodontal cleaning as well; just one of our expert dentists is Dr. Arthur R. Volker.
Is important that everyone has a periodic dental exam and dental cleaning on a schedule that is best determined by our dentists. However, it is recommended that most people have a teeth cleaning in 11104 every six months. A regular teeth cleaning will remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. It will help to keep your teeth from developing dental cavities as well as keep your gums healthy. If our dentist sees during your regular dental checkup that you have developed gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, he will most likely recommend that you have a regular dental cleaning several times during the coming months. The dental cleaning will remove harmful substances from your teeth and possibly just below the gum line. If it is seen that deep pockets have formed between your teeth and gums, you are developing gum disease. Plaque, tartar, bacteria, and food debris will all gather in these deep pockets and infection will form. A periodontal scaling and root planing treatment will most likely be recommended in this case. During this treatment, all materials will be removed from the deep pockets that have formed between the teeth and gums, and will help the deep pockets to heal. The surfaces of the roots will also be planed so that plaque and tartar cannot easily adhere to them any longer.
For an appointment for a teeth cleaning in 11104, all you need to do is contact our dental office. If desired, we can also arrange a dental exam to take place, at the same time, for your convenience.
