Do you have your teeth cleaning every six months like you’re supposed to? If not, you may need an in-depth cleaning to remove plaque build-up and tartar to keep gum disease at bay and prevent cavities. Getting in-depth cleanings is one of the best ways to prevent any unnecessary dental work in the future. We want you to feel confident and happy about your smile – and the best way to do that is to keep it healthy.
Your gums and teeth need to be flossed and brushed every single day. Despite our best efforts, staining and plaque will still build up and the plaque will harden into deposits known as tartar, which is not possible to remove with just brushing and flossing. This is why you need a professional to clean your teeth every six months, to remove the plaque and tartar that you can’t reach with a brush alone. Our Grand Prairie dentists will gently clean, polish, and floss your teeth to make sure they are in perfect condition. We use a simple ultrasonic scaling procedure using small instruments that gently removes plaque that has built up beneath your gum line.
In addition, ultrasonic scalers are used to remove stains and plaque from the surface. These surfaces areas are the ones that you can’t reach. Substantial build-up of tartar will eventually lead to gum disease. This is why it is so important to get professional teeth cleanings, to prevent tooth loss, enamel wearing, tooth decay, and gingivitis.
