Teeth Cleaning Q & A

Glad Dental P.C.

Why are dental cleanings necessary?

Regularly scheduled dental cleanings help prevent tooth loss and lessen the risk of other harmful dental diseases. Professional teeth cleaning removes the buildup of plaque and tartar which, if not removed, can cause gum disease. Gum disease develops as a result of your body’s immune system responding to tartar buildup with inflamed and bleeding gums. If gum disease increases, so does the damage done to the bone and tissues in your mouth. This damage can eventually become irreversible. Preventive measures through teeth cleaning is the best way to maintain overall dental health and keep beautiful teeth for a lifetime.

What happens during dental cleanings?

The focus of dental cleanings is maintaining your best dental hygiene and oral health care. Dental cleanings work to prevent impending tooth or gum disease before it takes hold of your teeth. Some of the things that will be done during a cleaning at Glad Dental P.C. include:

  • Removing plaque: Plaque is a sticky substance that can lead to deposits of tartar and cavities.
  • Removing tartar: Tartar is hardened plaque that develops on the tooth over time.
  • Removing stains: Dental stains and discoloration are a common benefit of tooth cleaning.

What other services does Dr. Yakobashvili perform during a dental cleaning?

During the teeth cleaning there is a possibility that Dr. Yakobashvili may perform other services at the same time. This can include the use of digital X-rays. These X-rays are used to make a diagnosis of dental problems. They provide early detection by projecting clear images to determine if there are other dental concerns such as hidden dental cysts, solid growths, or tumors.
