Teeth Cleaning | Pasadena Texas Dentist

Teeth Cleaning Pasadena, Texas:

Your professional teeth cleaning will be with one our amazing hygienists. They will remove calculus (tartar) and plaque from your teeth. Then they will polish and floss all your teeth. To strengthen your teeth a fluoride treatment is recommended after your cleaning.


Laser Bacteria Reduction is preformed to dramatically reduce the bacteria around your teeth.

If patients have bacterial infections in their gum tissue the hygienists will perform a procedure called Scaling and Root Planing. This is an advanced dental cleaning designed to remove the bacteria, bacteria waste (poop), and pus.

How frequently should teeth be cleaned?

Most individuals believe that they should see their dentist once every six months for a check-up and professional teeth cleaning. This, however, is not true for every single sufferer. Those with gum disease should see their dentist at least once every three months for an examination and teeth cleaning.

Routine cleanings are also a good time to ask your hygienist about areas of your mouth where your brushing and flossing routines could use some assistance, and your hygienist can also ensure you’re performing both tasks correctly so you’re removing as much plaque and tartar as possible during your home routine. Having your teeth cleaned every six months not only prevents gum disease, but it also helps keep bad breath at bay. Routine cleanings are typically combined with a routine checkup to allow the dentist to examine your teeth, do an oral cancer screening, and, if necessary, take X-rays.

Deep cleanings of the teeth

Deep dental cleanings, as the name suggests, clean your teeth thoroughly, utilizing unique techniques to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria below the gum line and all the way down to your tooth roots. The germs that cause gum disease prefer to lurk in hard tartar deposits on the gum-protected surfaces of your teeth. Toxins are released by bacteria when they reproduce and expand, irritating your gums.

Your gums begin to slip away from the surfaces of your teeth over time, forming microscopic pockets that allow bacteria to move all the way down to the roots. Infections in the lower portion of the tooth can damage the roots, causing your teeth to come out. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in people in the United States.

Deep dental cleaning eliminates bacteria below the gum line and around the roots, preventing gum disease and tooth loss. Furthermore, your hygienist will smooth (or plane) the surfaces of your tooth roots in order to make it more difficult for bacteria to “stick” to them in the future. Deep dental cleaning employs local anesthetics to numb your gums because it goes below your gum line. If your gums are really sensitive or you’re anxious, sedation may be utilized to make you calm and comfortable.

Put an end to gum disease.

Both frequent and deep dental cleanings are helpful in preventing infection and tooth loss caused by gum disease. Don’t put it off any longer if it’s been a while since your last cleaning.
