Ultrasonic Dental Cleaning in Los Angeles
Having your teeth cleaned isn’t as unpleasant as you may think it is, and it’s necessary for a healthy, plaque-free mouth. Without regular dental cleaning, dental plaque and tartar can build up and eventually lead to bad breath and gum disease, no matter how well you brush. Ultrasonic dental cleaning is one of the most efficient cleaning methods to both clean your teeth and minimize pain. Not only will an ultrasonic dental cleaning remove plaque, but it will get rid of tartar and a hardened, calcified form of tarter called calculus that is difficult to remove with old-fashioned scraping. The frequency of the vibrations is fine-tuned so that it literally disintegrates all the tartar and plaque without affecting the enamel of the teeth in the slightest.
Water shooting out of the tip of the dental cleaning instrument will wash tartar and plaque debris out of the way. Not only is ultrasonic dental cleaning more effective than standard cleaning, it’s also faster and more efficient. It has actually been shown to decrease the occurrence of gingivitis and other gum diseases, because more plaque is able to be removed.
Deep Cleaning, Scaling, and Root Planning
If during the dental examination the dentist finds signs of gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease) or periodontitis (more severe pocketing around the roots of teeth associated with bone loss and loss of attachment), he or she will use periodontal probing to determine the extent of your gum disease.
Then we will administer a rejuvenating deep dental cleaning, scaling, and root planning session. We will use a topical anesthetic to numb your gums for 20 to 30 minutes. We will go below the gum line to remove any plaque, tartar, and bacteria – thus allowing your gums and bone to heal.
Patients who have gum disease need to most effective deep cleaning methods available, so they can benefit greatly from an ultrasonic cleaning as well. It can reach down below the lining of the gums to clear away the hard to reach plaque and calculus deposits that a hand scraper can’t quite reach. Since there’s no actual physical pressure on the tooth, patients who have periodontal disease, which causes the teeth to loosen, can safely receive an ultrasonic cleaning with no worry that it might dislodge a loose tooth.
Maintaining oral health and fighting gum infections is easy. It just takes a little time each day and some professional help from your friends at River Dentistry – leading experts in deep dental cleaning in Los Angeles. Gum disease is an infection in your mouth, which can reach your bloodstream and some patients. For example, pregnant women may have higher risk of developing accelerated gum disease due to hormonal changes. Unfortunately the health ramifications of gum disease and not having regular dental oral exams and dental teeth cleaning can be quite serious and may be linked to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
