At Langley Dental Care, we recognize how important regular professional teeth cleanings are in maintaining excellent dental health. Our expert dentists and hygienists are committed to offering high-quality dental hygiene treatments to help you attain a healthy, beautiful smile. Discover the numerous advantages of professional teeth cleaning below!

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 esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis 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.

Our Dental Cleaning Recommendations

Frequency of Professional Dental Cleaning

Regular professional teeth cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, are essential for good dental health. For most people, we recommend scheduling these cleanings every six months. This biannual regimen acts as a preventive precaution, helping to keep your teeth and gums healthy by eliminating plaque, tartar, and germs that can cause dental problems if left untreated.

However, it is important to note that certain people may require more frequent cleanings depending on their dental health demands. Patients with periodontitis, a dangerous gum infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth, benefit from cleanings every 3-4 months. The increased frequency is critical for effectively controlling the illness and preventing further development.

Halting Disease Progression

Gum disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, is a common oral health concern that, if left untreated, can lead to severe consequences such as tooth loss and systemic health issues. While gum disease cannot be completely reversed, our dental prophylaxis services play a vital role in halting its progression and preserving your oral health.
