It’s extremely important to have your teeth cleaned twice a year by a dental hygienist. Even with routine brushing and flossing, bacteria can still form on your teeth between brushings and lead to plaque. Plaque can’t be removed at home from a toothbrush and but a dental hygienist will have no trouble removing the pesky decay-causing plaque. Dental cleanings from a dental hygienist are an important step in preventative dental care and will keep you and your smile happy and healthy!
You may be thinking to yourself, “what’s the point of brushing & flossing every day if plaque will build up anyways?” Plaque and stains build up over time, and while your gums and teeth benefit (not to mention your breathe) from routine brushing and flossing, sometimes harder deposits can stick to your teeth and is difficult for normal brushing to remove. This is where your friendly Burleson dentists come into play! We use a simple ultrasonic scaling treatment that uses a small instrument to remove hard plaque trapped beneath the gums.
Ultrasonic scalers are used primarily to remove the plaque and stains from the surface of the tooth that normal brushing and flossing can’t reach. When the build-up of tartar is left untreated, it creates a harbor for gingivitis and tooth decay. Professional cleanings are the best way to prevent this build-up and make your smile a fresh and clean again.
