Dental Cleaning in Cypress, TX

Dental cleaning is a preventive dental procedure that removes plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. The removal of tartar through the procedure significantly reduces the chances of developing gum diseases and cavities. Dental cleaning is performed by dentists or dental hygienists, and the procedure includes scaling, root planing, and polishing. 

Why Do You Need Dental Cleaning?

Alongside removing plaque and tartar on the teeth and gums, dental cleaning also helps:

  • Remove bad breath
  • Improve oral health
  • Prevent tooth decay, gum diseases and cavities
  • Relieve tooth pain and swollen gums
  • Remove bacteria buildup
  • Relieve tooth sensitivity
  • Remove hard deposits 
  • Prevent bone loss

 What Are the Benefits of Dental Cleaning?  

  • Dental cleaning helps remove hard deposits such as calculus, tartar, and plaque that cannot be removed through regular brushing or flossing.  
    The removal of plaque reduces your risk of developing gum diseases and cavities.  
  • Dental cleaning improves your overall oral health by keeping your teeth clean, healthy, and free from cavities and gum infections.  
  • Scaling makes your teeth look clean and healthy by removing stains and discoloration that occur due to bacterial accumulation on the teeth.  
  • Scaling also removes hard deposits that cause pain when you bite or chew foods.  
  • Scaling reduces bad breath by eliminating food debris that causes foul odor in your mouth.  
  • Scaling prevents bone loss by removing food debris that causes inflammation in your mouth's soft tissues.  
  • A deep scaling procedure improves your overall oral health by removing bad bacteria that cause gum infections in your mouth's soft tissues.  

What Is Included in Dental Cleaning?

Dental cleaning involves removing plaque, calculus, and other hard deposits from the teeth using ultrasonic scaling units, picks, and drills. The entire procedure does not take more than 30 minutes. The steps involved in dental cleaning include: 

Scaling: The scaling process includes the use of ultrasonic scaling units to remove plaque and calculus from the teeth and gums. This scaling process lasts for about 15 minutes and involves the use of water mist to dislodge the bacteria from the tooth surface.

Root planing: Root planing involves removing rough spots from the root surfaces using specialized instruments such as a root planer or a curette. This enables proper circulation in the tissues of the teeth, prevents damage to the dentin, reduces tooth sensitivity, and speeds up tissue healing after deep restorative procedures such as crowns, veneers, or fillings.

Polishing: Polishing or buffing is performed to smooth rough spots on a tooth or to remove minor scratches on enamel. It can be performed using manual or electric polishing devices. In most cases, polishing follows scaling to remove all rough spots on the surface of the teeth to make them smooth.
