Teeth Dental Cleaning in Los Angeles

Daily brushing and flossing may not be enough to keep your smile healthy and stain-free.

Give us a call and we will clean and polish your teeth to a spotless bright shine the same or next day. Teeth dental cleaning walk-ins are also welcome!

We’ve all heard the golden rule of thumb when it comes to dental care: brush your teeth after every meal and floss daily. However, at River Dentistry in Los Angeles, we know that dental care is far more complicated than that and that every patient is different and requires special attention to their own specific problems and needs. While brushing and flossing are key to preventing periodontal disease, getting a professional teeth dental cleaning does not only reduce the risk of dental and gum disease but also helps to reveal the beauty and shine of your natural smile.

During deep teeth dental cleaning, scaling, and root planing we use topical anesthetic to numb your gums for 20 to 30 minutes as we go below the gum line to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria, allowing gums and bone to heal. Deep teeth dental cleaning is the best preventive treatment for gum disease.

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Removing this plaque and making the teeth surface smoother to make plaque formation more difficult is one of the many benefits of teeth dental cleaning.

Here are some warning signs that can signal that you may be overdue for a professional deep teeth dental cleaning by a highly skilled dental hygienist or a dentist in Downtown Los Angeles: gums that bleed easily; red, swollen, tender gums; gums that have pulled away from the teeth; persistent bad breath or bad taste; permanent teeth that are loose or separating; any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite; or any change in the fit of partial dentures.

Usually, getting a high-quality dental cleaning by a dentist every 3-4 months is sufficient to maintain good dental and gum health. However, some factors increase the risk of developing gum disease and may require more frequent deep teeth dental cleaning in Los Angeles: poor oral hygiene, smoking or chewing tobacco, genetics, crooked teeth that are hard to keep clean, pregnancy, diabetes, and
medications (including steroids, certain types of anti-epilepsy drugs, cancer therapy drugs, some calcium channel blockers and oral contraceptives).

See your favorite Los Angeles dentist if you suspect you have gum disease, because the sooner you treat it the better. The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated by a professional teeth dental cleaning at our Downtown Los Angeles dental office, followed by daily brushing and flossing.

Advanced gum disease is called periodontitis. Chronic periodontitis can lead to the loss of tissue and bone that support the teeth and it may become more severe over time. If it does, your teeth will feel loose and start moving around in your mouth. This is the most common form of periodontitis in adults but can occur at any age. It usually gets worse slowly, but there can be periods of rapid progression. Aggressive periodontitis is a highly destructive form of periodontal disease that occurs in patients who are otherwise healthy. Common features include rapid loss of tissue and bone and may occur in some areas of the mouth, or in the entire mouth. Dr. Charles Huang at River Dentistry in Downtown Los Angeles can effectively diagnose and treat mild to severe gum disease, but our main goal is to prevent it by providing our patients the best painless professional teeth dental cleaning in Downtown Los Angeles.
