Our Newark teeth cleaning, or dental cleaning, comes with a variety of benefits. It removes tartar buildup and residual plaque that was missed during your at-home oral hygiene routine. It makes your mouth feel fresh. And it prevents future tooth decay and the cavities that result from them. It also will reverse early stage gum disease and prevent it from progressing. If gum disease is allowed to become advanced, you will need a periodontal cleaning. At Allstate Dental LLC, we want you to understand the differences between these two types of cleanings, and show you have to avoid periodontal cleanings entirely.
Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease. You may experience mild irritation and redness, but it’s also possible that you have it and don’t even realize. When you come in for your twice-yearly dental exam, our Newark teeth cleaning is automatically part of it. If you are showing indications of gingivitis, you’ll soon find your gums returning to their natural state, which is pink, vibrant, and healthy. In some stubborn cases, you might need a second cleaning, but the good news is that you won’t need to be concerned about periodontitis, the later stage of gum disease. When you don’t come in for our Newark teeth cleaning every six months, the chances become greater that you will begin to notice signs like bleeding when you brush, persistent bad breath, and receding gums. A periodontal cleaning is a deeper type of treatment. Our dentist gets down to the roots using hand scraping and/or ultrasonic instruments to clean out the plaque and tartar that have taken hold there, and are responsible for the unpleasant effects you’re having.
