When was the last time you had your routine teeth cleaning at your dentist's office? If you think teeth brushing and flossing are enough to protect your oral health, you might want to have a rethink. Dental cleaning with your dentist in Stockton, CA, Dr. Alexander Pritsky, and Dr. Roger Lang of Brookside Dental Care, will help you get a cleaner smile and healthier teeth.

What is Teeth Cleaning?

If you're a regular at your dentist's office, you've probably had several teeth cleanings over the years. This routine dental procedure at your dentist's office removes tartar, bacteria, and plaque buildup on your teeth. At the end of your dental cleaning procedure with your dentist, you'll have a cleaner smile. Professional teeth cleaning with your Stockton, CA, dentist reaches between your teeth and into your gum line to clear out debris that you can't get out by teeth brushing and flossing.

Benefits of Teeth Cleaning

  • Reduces Bad Breath - If you're struggling with bad breath, routine teeth cleaning with your dentist removes the bad breath causing bacteria. It supports your teeth brushing and flossing efforts to keep your breath fresh.
  • Prevents Gum Disease - Going in for your regular dental cleaning is essential for preventing gum disease. It removes the bacteria in your gum pockets that can cause gum inflammation, bleeding, and recession.
  • Prevents Cavities - Dental caries result from oral bacteria, plaque, and tartar buildup. Teeth cleaning clears out the bacteria to protect your teeth.
  • Brighter Smile - Your teeth may be a few shades brighter under all the grime and plaque buildup. During your dental cleaning, your dentist will remove plaque and dental stains that are responsible for your dull smile.
  • Early Cancer Detection - Your routine dental cleaning lets your dentist examine your teeth and oral structures closely. Therefore, spotting early cancer signs is possible.
  • Protects Overall Health - Oral bacteria doesn't affect just your oral health but it can affect other areas of your body such as your cardiovascular health.
