Professional Teeth Cleanings
Come to our Columbia dental office for your regular teeth cleanings. While most people brush and floss regularly that is often not enough to maintain a healthy mouth. A professional dental cleaning is done by a dentist or dental hygienist and focuses on removing dental plaque and tartar. Dental plaque and tartar often builds up on teeth and if not removed on a regular basis can cause unhealthy teeth.
Regular dental teeth cleanings are necessary to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. If a person develops gum disease this can often lead to tooth loss. At our Columbia dental office our staff will clean and polish your teeth leaving the surfaces of your teeth clean and smooth and this will help prevent bacteria from sticking to them.
During your cleaning our Columbia dentist or hygienist will use specialized instruments to remove harmful deposits from your teeth. We generally start with an ultrasound device that vibrates and knocks the tarter off of your teeth. At the same time the ultrasound device sprays a cooling stream of water on the area being worked down to maintain a comfortable temperature on your teeth which minimizes discomfort.
Once we have serviced your teeth with the ultrasound device we then scalers and curettes (small metal tools) to manually remove smaller remaining deposits on your teeth. Once the teeth have been completely cleaned and cleared of deposits we then use a machine to gently polish your teeth.
Dr Joobbani recommends a professional dental cleaning at least two times a year to reduce tarter and plaque buildup. In addition he stresses the importance of brushing your teeth at least two times a day and flossing at least one time away. This daily maintenance helps augment our professional cleanings.
