Busy Miamians don’t have a lot of time to be running to the dentist’s office several times a year for routine checkups and cleanings, but doing so could save them more time, not to mention money, pain and dental trouble. Even the most diligent daily brushing and flossing routine will not remove bacteria causing plaque and tartar that can form on the teeth and gums in places that are hard to reach with a toothbrush. Only professional teeth cleaning in Downtown Miami can scrape away these stubborn decay and disease carrying food residues.
Our doctor recommends that our patients come into the office for a professional teeth cleaning in downtown Miami twice a year. During the cleaning our hygienist will scrape the debris, plaque and tartar from around and between the teeth, as well as away from the areas between the teeth and gums or in any of the pockets that have formed on the gums near the base of the teeth. Once all the plaque and tartar have been cleared away our hygienist will polish the teeth so they look their best. Plaque and tartar on the teeth begin to decay the teeth, creating holes on the surface, which allows bacteria to get in and infect the roots. A decaying tooth will need either a restoration or if left to decay replacing.
Plaque and tartar on the gums will allow bacteria to begin to pull the gum away from the tooth, which is gum disease or gingivitis. The more bacteria infects the gums the more they detach from the teeth forming deep pockets between the tooth and gum. Bacteria in these pockets furthers the development of the disease and may begin to affect the bone. Severe gum disease can cause the tooth to become unstable and be lost and may even cause bone loss. A teeth cleaning in Downtown Miami is the most effective way of ridding the gums of plaque and tartar and preventing gingivitis.
