Teeth Cleaning Q&A
Why do I need professional dental cleanings?
Many individuals believe they don’t require regular dental cleaning treatments if their teeth feel and look excellent. The truth is that everyone needs a professional dental cleaning every six months, even people who are extremely careful about brushing and flossing.
At Memorial Park Dental Spa, modern dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar that your toothbrush or floss can’t reach or clean.
Professional cleanings help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and other dental complications. In fact, regular dental care can reduce the risk for several other severe conditions, including diabetes and high blood pressure.
What happens during a dental cleaning and check-up?
You should have routine dental-cleaning appointments with the expert team at Memorial Park Dental Spa every six months.
Your teeth will be examined by the dentist to look for decay. She will also discuss your oral health with you and may provide recommendations for at-home care and treatments to keep your teeth healthy. Additionally, she will floss your teeth and gently scrape off plaque and tartar. She will then polish your teeth to get rid of stains and make your smile more radiant.
Dr. Thomas, Dr. Abdou, and Dr. Chaluparambil can answer questions about how to take care of your teeth at home and show you how to floss quickly and efficiently.
What is Laser Therapy?
Laser dentists offer alternatives to traditional treatment. Traditional chair-side protocol consists of scraping with sharp instruments and ultrasonic scalers to remove tartar, biofilm, and toxic bacteria from tooth root surfaces. Traditional treatment can cause bleeding, swelling, and pain.
