5 main reasons deep teeth cleaning is important

After your regular check-up, your dentist suggests you need deep teeth cleaning. Why is this dental hygiene service important?

First off, what are deep teeth cleaning?

A deep tooth cleaning is the removal of plaque and tartar from your teeth roots and below your gumline. These two cleaning methods are known as root planning and scaling at the dentist.

So, why should you go to get this dental hygiene service?

1. Reduces the size of space between your teeth

You want your teeth and gums to be attached since a gap could lead to food particles getting stuck along your gum line, resulting in infection. The plaque below your gum line can cause a gap where bacteria can begin to grow, but a deep teeth cleaning can help to re-attach your teeth correctly to your gumline.

2. Controls gum infection

Excess amounts of plaque and tartar can lead to gum infection. By getting deep teeth cleaning, you are allowing your dental hygienist to help prevent things like inflammation and gingivitis.

You can’t just rely on your dental hygienist to keep your teeth and gums healthy. You need to make sure you eat a healthy diet, brush and floss your teeth regularly, and keep those all-important dental appointments. Performing these tasks will help maintain your overall oral health by preventing the build-up of negative toxins.

3. Reduces gum inflammation

Have you noticed your gums are inflamed? Inflamed gums are often a sign of gum disease. If you notice your teeth are bleeding every time your brush, then it’s time to get to the dentist for deep cleaning.

Swollen and irritated gums can cause you a lot of pain but at Stoney Trail Dental Calgary, you can be confident your dentist will be able to pinpoint a treatment to eliminate the problem.

4. Keeps you healthy all-around

When your teeth are ridden with plaque, tartar, infection, and disease your body reacts negatively. Unhealthy oral hygiene can cause other health-related issues. Poor oral health can lead to heart problems and various types of cancer. For this reason, a deep teeth cleaning can help you stay healthy.

5. Fresh feeling mouth

Glide your tongue along with your teeth. Do you feel the smoothness? Your teeth will feel clean when no longer ridden with bumpy plaque and tartar. You feel better all-around after deep teeth cleaning and your mouth will smell fresher too! Built-up bacteria can cause bad breath and leave a negative taste in your mouth.

Your dentist is often the first to notice any major oral health problems and will know if you are at risk for complications. If something out of the ordinary occurs or you need to get an oral health concern dealt with right away, your dentist will know the right treatment options for you. Stoney Trail Dental Calgary is a good place to go for all your dental health needs.
