Professional teeth cleanings by a certified dentist or dental hygienist will remove plaque, tartar, and stains that buildup on the teeth. Our dental cleanings range from regular cleanings that aim to maintain the health of your teeth and gums to deep cleanings that can correct such issues like gum disease. We recommend you have your teeth professionally cleaned twice per year in order to reduce the risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay, cavities, or other oral health problems. In between routine cleanings, it is important you adopt good oral hygiene at home, such as brushing and flossing at least twice a day. The dental cleanings you will undergo at Cosmetic and Family Dentistry of Las Colinas aim to remove plaque and tartar deposits that remain even with daily brushing and flossing.

About Our Dental Cleanings
If you do not visit Dr. Naik at least twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning, you may be at risk of excessive buildup of plaque, which, if left untreated, can lead to tooth decay, diseased gums, and other serious oral health issues. Unfortunately, people often neglect the simple task of visiting their dentist for a professional teeth cleaning, which is a big mistake. There are a few important stages of a deep dental cleanings that you should be aware of:
- Scaling – This is the removal of plaque and tartar from the top surface of the using. During this phase, Dr. Naik or one of this knowledgeable dental hygienists will use an electric scaler to ensure the teeth are cleaned as thoroughly as possible, and in a short amount of time.
- Polishing – This is a common teeth cleaning procedure that is characterized by smoothing the surface of the teeth in order to make it more difficult for plaque to form.
- Root planing – This is a more in-depth phase of the teeth cleaning process that involved scaling the root of the tooth. This may be necessary if plaque has reached the root of the tooth – or the cementum. Because cementum is softer than enamel, it is often more vulnerable to plaque-forming bacteria.
