What Is Teeth Cleaning?

At Talega Denta Group, our teeth whitening procedure in a dental office involves a comprehensive process to eliminate stains and discoloration from teeth. Our skilled team begins with a thorough examination to assess the suitability for whitening. We then apply a protective barrier to safeguard the gums and utilize a powerful whitening agent containing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. To enhance the process, we may utilize specialized lights or lasers. Our attentive dental professionals closely monitor the progress to ensure the desired level of whiteness is achieved, delivering prompt and effective results that surpass at-home treatments.

advantages of Teeth Cleaning

At Talega Dental Group, we provide teeth cleaning as a vital preventive procedure to maintain oral health. Our skilled dental hygienists use specialized tools to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains from the teeth. They meticulously clean hard-to-reach areas, including between teeth and along the gumline. The process also involves polishing the teeth to eliminate surface discoloration. Regular teeth cleaning helps prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and promotes a fresh, healthy smile that our patients can confidently showcase.

About Deep CLeaning

Deep teeth cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a non-surgical dental procedure performed by a dentist or dental hygienist. It involves thorough removal of plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins from the surfaces of teeth and their roots, extending below the gumline. This procedure is essential for treating and preventing gum disease, specifically gingivitis and periodontitis. During scaling, dental instruments are used to remove plaque and calculus, while root planing smooths the tooth roots to discourage bacterial adherence and facilitate gum tissue healing. Deep teeth cleaning helps reduce inflammation, restore gum health, and prevent further complications related to periodontal diseases. Regular professional cleanings support overall oral hygiene and prevent tooth loss due to gum disease.
