Deep Cleaning and Your Dental Health

Deep Cleaning and Your Dental Health | Dentist Main Beach Many patients who visit Main Beach Dental require a deep cleaning, sometimes known as a scaling and root planing.

Those words may sound serious and threatening, but in fact the deep cleaning treatment is non-surgical and does not require any slicing or drills.

A deep clean is what we recommend when a patient is diagnosed with the first stage of gum disease (gingivitis) because a regular cleaning only involves scraping plaque off the teeth and does not get to the roots of your teeth.

If you suffer from gingivitis we work to remove the infection, promote healthy gum re-attachment, and halt gum infection before it can advance into periodontitis.

Regular Dental Cleaning for Total Health

Regular Dental Cleaning for Total Health | Dentist Main Beach Regular dental exams are a crucial part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums; healthy teeth and gums that then go on to support overall health.

Still, plenty of us shy away from the idea of visiting the dentist, whether because of fear of pain, dislike of the dental chair, or because dental visits can be inconvenient.

While this is a common practice, at Main Beach Dental we’d like to emphasize that skipping dental visits can be very bad for your oral and overall health.

Skipping dental visits can put your at risk of dental problems as well as some kinds of general illness including heart disease.
