Even with regular brushing and flossing at home, plaque and tartar can still build on teeth especially in hard to reach areas. Allowing tartar to accumulate provides the right conditions for harmful bacteria to thrive on teeth, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. With professional dental cleaning from Audubon Dental Center, you can be sure that your teeth and gums always stay clean and healthy.
Without proper oral hygiene or routine teeth cleaning, it’s possible for you to develop gingivitis. Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums due to the accumulation of bacteria, or plaque. If left untreated, it can progress to periodontal disease, which can lead to the loss of teeth.
Teeth deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is done to treat gingivitis and prevent it from leading to gum disease. Dental scaling is the process of scraping off plaque buildup and tartar on the surface of the teeth, while root planing is done to smoothen rough layers on root surfaces and remove any infected parts. Special instruments are used to provide deep cleaning, and it may take a few dental visits to complete the entire procedure.
If it’s your first time to undergo this type of dental cleaning, we will do all we can to keep the treatment as comfortable as possible. We’ve created a spa-like atmosphere in our office complete with soothing music and light scents of vanilla and lavender to set your mind at ease while you await your appointment. You can even enjoy some tea, gourmet coffee, seltzer water, or juice at our refreshment bar. If you wish, we can also provide you with an eye mask, headphones to listen to music, or earplugs to drown out sounds during the procedure.
