Teeth Cleaning Dentist Houston - Elite Dental Wellness
Having a bright, healthy smile is such a great feeling. The reason why is because having healthy teeth and gums has very important health benefits.

Despite what name-brand toothpaste commercials tell you, nothing can clean your teeth as well as a dental hygienist or dentist can. Plaque can only be removed with the proper tools and skilled hands.

Plaque and tarter buildup on teeth can lead to some serious health issues, including Gum Disease; which can lead to or contribute to heart disease, diabetes and other problems.

All Kidding Aside. Dental Visits are Important.

Not only will your teeth get cleaner at a dental office, but we look for oral cancer and periodontal disease; both of which can seriously impact the health of your body.

Teeth cleanings that are done correctly are done with advanced dental equipment that can remove the plaque bacteria that builds up on teeth. It is this plaque bacteria that eats away at tooth enamel and causes tooth decay and cavities.

Tartar is a kind of hardened plaque, and teeth cleanings remove this too. It’s important to get rid of the tartar buildup that occurs, because if we don’t gingivitis can occur. Tartar control toothpaste does help with tartar buildup, but you still need regular teeth cleanings to get all the tartar removed.

Dental hygienists use picks and other tools to remove plaque buildup, stains and debris that gets caught in-between teeth and beneath the gum line. There is no toothpaste that can do the same thing.

Most dentists recommend getting your teeth cleaned by a dental office twice per year. You should talk to your dentist to see what is right for you. Soft enamel on the teeth can be a special problem that requires a more active dental regimen. If you have soft enamel on your teeth, that means the enamel is easily removed by sugar, acids and even vigorous brushing.

Ask your dentist if you have soft enamel or if there are any other concerns that you should be aware of. Keeping your teeth healthy for as long as possible is the smart thing to do, and it will cost less money in the end. When you schedule your next teeth cleaning, make sure you take the time to talk to your dentist and find out what you can do to keep your teeth healthy and clean.
