The requirement for a regular or deep teeth cleaning is determined by your Saratoga dentist on the basis of clinical examination. During the comprehensive dental examination, your dentist usually checks the condition of the periodontium and the actual status of oral hygiene. If the oral hygiene is found to be in a compromised state, you will be advised for routine dental cleaning or regular teeth cleaning.
While carrying out the regular teeth cleaning procedure, your dentist will eliminate both the soft deposit layer (also called as plaque) and firm deposits (also called as calculus) stuck on your teeth. These deposits have the potential to cause cavities on teeth and gum problems. The greatest benefit of regular teeth cleaning is that the development of gum diseases is avoided or intercepted.
In some cases, deep teeth cleaning may be advised for the purpose of inhibiting infection and inflammation of gum tissue caused by oral bacteria and also for stimulation of gingival growth. This procedure is generally invasive in nature and so local anesthesia is administered to reduce pain and uneasiness.
