Teeth Cleanings in Los Angeles, CA

A layer of plaque, tartar, or stains deposited on the surface of your teeth doesn’t just look unsightly but also makes way for severe dental issues. Gingivitis, periodontitis, cavities, decays, dental abscess, and tooth loss could be due to the bacterial deposits invading your tooth. But by undergoing a 30-minute to one-hour dental cleaning procedure, you can eliminate the possibility of having any severe dental issue. 

What is Deep Teeth Cleaning? 

Due to a lack of proper oral hygiene, a sticky layer containing bacteria forms on your teeth. It develops when the remaining food particles in your mouth mix with saliva. Although you can remove plaque by regular brushing and flossing, it hardens and forms tartar if not removed for an extended period. 

Plaque and tartar accumulated on the surface of your teeth can lead to several gum diseases, such as gingivitis (inflammation of gums), which can advance to periodontitis (inflammation of periodontal ligaments), which can damage the bone supporting your teeth. 

We perform deep teeth cleaning procedures to remove the plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, eliminate gum inflammation, and enhance gum health. The procedure is easy, quick, and non-invasive and gives you a cleaner smile in just one appointment. 

Teeth Cleaning Procedure

We start by examining your oral cavity to determine the grade of calculus and stains and check the presence of any other dental issues. Then we start the cleaning procedure with the help of a scaler. We remove all the plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, near your gum line, and in between your teeth. 

After removing all the buildup, we polish your teeth with a rubber cup and gritty toothpaste. We also floss your teeth and rinse your mouth with a fluoride-containing rinse. Our dentist will apply a fluoride gel to your teeth with the help of a mouthpiece.
