We always emphasize the importance of patients following a great at-home teeth cleaning regimen as well as coming in for regularly scheduled professional teeth cleanings and checkups. Our general dentist in Ossining sees many dental problems that might have been prevented by getting in-office teeth cleaning. The importance of teeth cleaning is that it is one of the most effective ways to help prevent gum disease and keep teeth from loosening and falling out.
Our general dentist in Ossining may recommend a periodontal procedure to a patient if there are early signs of gum disease developing. Even when teeth are brushed and flossed regularly at home, gum disease can occur. Professional dental cleanings are needed to keep tartar from staying on your teeth. Tartar forms when plaque and bacteria are allowed to stay on the teeth for even a short period of time. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that cannot be removed by any amount of at-home brushing and flossing. A dental cleaning with professional dental cleaning instruments is needed to remove it. If tartar stays on teeth, it will get between the gums and teeth and deep pockets will form. These deep pockets will collect more plaque, bacteria and tartar and serious gum disease will take hold. To help restore gums to good health, Dr. Battista may recommend a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment so that your gums can be cleaned below the gum line. If you would like to see Dr. Battista and schedule a comprehensive dental checkup for you or a member of your family, contact us for an appointment.
