Dental Cleaning

Gulfport Dental Cleaning Services

Is it time to schedule your next cleaning with Gulf Coast Dental Care? Our experienced dentists and dental hygienists use the latest techniques and equipment to keep your teeth and gums healthy. For clean, healthy teeth and fresh breath, we recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning. Good oral hygiene should start early. Even new babies should visit the dentist by their first birthday to ensure tooth and gum health.

What is a Dental Cleaning?

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only 25 to 30 minutes, and should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. A routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing and polishing. Scaling and root planing is the process of removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces with a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar.

Advanced Dental Cleaning at Gulf Coast Dental Care

Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has led to more modern methods such as electric scalers. This sophisticated tool allows dental cleanings to be performed more efficiently and in less time. Both electric and manual scaling methods can be combined to achieve the best results. Polishing completes the cleaning, making the surface of the teeth smooth and minimizing future plaque build-up.

The Importance of Dental Cleanings

Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums, cavities, tooth decay or tooth loss. Regular dental cleanings will remove the acidic plaque buildup that eats away at enamel and can lead to gum disease. In addition to improve oral hygiene, dental cleanings will help keep your smile bright and white. If you drink coffee, tea, or other staining beverages, a dental cleaning can polish away what the beverages leave behind.
