Hygiene (Cleanings)

Regular teeth cleaning (Prophylaxis) by the dentist is recommended to remove plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for a patient to reach at home. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. This involves the use of various instruments or devices to loosen and remove deposits from the teeth.

*More frequent cleaning and examination may be necessary during the treatment of many of the dental/oral disorders.  Dr. Sabet will determine what is best for your oral health.

There are 2 different types of cleanings offered:

    1. Regular  6 month Prophylaxis (cleaning) – 1 visit
    2. Deep Cleaning (Perio Scaling/Root Planning) – 1-2 visits, which involves regular 3-4 month checkup

Warning Signs of Gum Disease:

  • Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Pus at the gum line when the gums are pressed
  • Teeth that are loose or changing in position
  • Any change in the bite
  • Any change in the fit of partial dentures
  • Constant bad breath or bad taste

However, patients can have gum disease and not exhibit these warning signs.
