A dental professional performing professional teeth cleaning does more than just give you a clean mouth. Regular cleanings and checkups help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Poor oral hygiene eventually leads to more significant health problems. Having your teeth professionally cleaned is an essential step in maintaining the overall wellness of your mouth. Dr. Adam Pasono of Green Bay Family Dentistry in Green Bay, WI, and his talented team, perform professional teeth cleanings thousands of times per year.

Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleanings by a Dentist in Green Bay, WI

When you work with a dentist in Green Bay, WI, such as one found at Green Bay Family Dentistry in Green Bay, WI, you'll find that your mouth will start to feel lighter and clearer once you've had professional teeth cleaning done. The primary function of deep dental cleaning is to remove the tartar that has built up under the gumline of each tooth.

Tartar is dried bits of plaque, saliva, and food bits formed into a hardened material between the gums and the teeth. It is impossible to remove it through regular brushing and flossing alone. Only trained dentists and dental teams can remove the tartar in a safe, effective manner. By removing the tartar, it no longer has a chance to fester, causing inflamed or eroding gums.

What Happens During Professional Teeth Cleanings

When you come into the office, you're seated comfortably in one of our exam chairs. Your mouth is X-rayed using the least invasive methods possible. Then a dental technician will come in and begin removing the tartar from each tooth and from under the gumline around each tooth with small tools. When finished, your teeth are polished and flossed.

The Worry Over It Having Been Too Long Since Your Last Visit

While the primary benefits of having professional teeth cleaning can be seen if it's done at least twice a year, we also know that it may have been much longer for you for various reasons. If you don't have dental insurance, we have affordable payment options.

Some people worry that if it's been too long that their teeth might fall out, or other bad things might happen once we get in there and start cleaning. We find the opposite to be true. Many uncomfortable issues a person has begin clearing up shortly after cleaning is done, simply because we've removed the tartar and excess harmful bacteria.
