Professional Teeth Cleaning
At The Texas Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry in The Woodlands, Texas, we know that each patient is different, and that is why we customize all treatment, including professional teeth cleaning, to meet each individual’s needs. We provide individualized treatment from routine dental cleanings to periodontal (gum) therapy for patients of all ages.
Why get a professional teeth cleaning?
When plaque hardens into calculus (tartar), brushing and flossing alone cannot remove it. The accumulation of plaque above or below the gum line can cause a bacterial infection that may lead to bad breath, tooth mobility, tooth loss, and other serious health problems when left untreated. Having professional dental cleanings is a very important preventative measure to help maintain your oral and overall health.
We treat each patient based on their current dental and medical conditions. We approach your care with a commitment to restoring and maintaining excellent oral health in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Our dentists and hygienists are extremely gentle and make your comfort a priority.
At your initial visit to our office in The Woodlands, we will complete a professional cleaning so that our Dentists can perform a comprehensive exam. One of our highly skilled hygienists will evaluate your periodontal health and use periodontal measurements, radiographs, and intraoral photos to determine the type of dental cleaning that will best meet your needs. If additional periodontal treatment is recommended, our hygienist will discuss the treatment options that will best establish good periodontal health.
Researchers estimate that 86% of people will develop periodontal disease at some point during their lifetime. Periodontal disease is a common infection of the teeth and gums that can eventually result in tooth loss. For our patients who suffer from periodontal disease, we offer specialized therapy to gently remove plaque, calculus, bacteria, and their toxins from the root surfaces of your teeth.
Our hygienists are laser certified to treat stubborn cases of periodontal disease comfortably and effectively. Laser treatment promotes faster gum healing and eliminates bacteria, potentially leading to a less painful recovery.
Once we restore your oral health, we can recommend a preventative dental cleaning schedule to help you avoid future periodontal disease and to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Treatment of periodontal disease is especially important because recent research shows that periodontal health is directly linked to autoimmune diseases in the body including heart disease, diabetes, and strokes.
