Even with good dental care, tartar and plaque deposits may still build up on your teeth. To take care of these deposits and to refresh your smile, our caring dentist at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA will deep clean your teeth and gums. Deep cleaning is part of a periodontal treatment plan when you visit Lake City Family Dental Center, PA. Not only does this leave your teeth clean and smooth, but it also helps prevent any major dental issues from occurring. This simple procedure can help prevent cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.
During the deep cleaning, your teeth will be cleaned with a specialized toothbrush and toothpaste that will remove stains and polish your teeth. Dr. Reeve Abraben will then clean the area above the gum line to remove the bits of tartar and plaque. Next, our dentist will remove the harmful bacteria and deposits from below the gum line. In some cases, we will perform a procedure called root planing, which smoothes the root of the tooth to eliminate any remaining plaque or tartar. Following the scaling and root planing, a member of our team may apply an antibiotic or antimicrobial medicine to help heal the area.
A thorough cleaning is an important part of maintaining a healthy smile. Call our office today to schedule your teeth cleaning in Lake City, Florida, and start taking care of your smile.
