Teeth Cleaning, Cypress TX

A woman having her teeth cleanedA dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Regular teeth cleaning is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Dental cleaning is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease.

The benefits of professional teeth cleaning include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the aesthetics of a smile. Dental cleaning is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Professional dental cleaning can be performed at our office. We recommend that teeth cleaning be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but dental cleaning is one of the tools Dr. Williams can use to effectively halt its progression.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Luis Lopez did my bottom teeth cleaning and made me feel very comfortable. I get really stressed out going to the dentist and the entire staff made me feel very comfortable and relaxes. The nitrous played a small role in that feeling as well. Thanks so much!
