If you’re looking for a gentle and precise teeth cleaning in Naples, then you’re already ahead of the game. Visiting Dr. George Mantikas, DMD for a professional teeth cleaning is one of the best things you can do to help prevent the onset of dental decay and gum disease. But did you know there are different kinds of dental cleanings, depending on your oral healthcare needs?
Your teeth and gums have an interdependent relationship – to have healthy teeth you need to have healthy gums. When plaque gathers below the gum line, it can infect and inflame the soft tissues that support your teeth. With a professional teeth cleaning in Naples you can thoroughly remove plaque, tartar and food debris from the hardest to reach crevices of your mouth. This kind of teeth cleaning in Naples occurs only at the margins of the gum line and on the crown, and is great for removing plaque, tartar and superficial stains from your teeth.
For patients who show signs of gingivitis, a deeper periodontal cleaning might be recommended. In this case, your dentist or hygienist performs the same services as a routine teeth cleaning but takes it a few steps further by cleaning the “pockets” between the gums and the teeth that are beneath the gum-line. These pockets can collect excess amounts of plaque which, if not removed, can lead to gingivitis, bone decay, and tooth loss. When a periodontal cleaning is performed all the plaque, calculus, and debris from below the gum line is removed, and the roots of the teeth are smoothed and planed. A deep cleaning will help prevent infection and help preserve the health of your teeth and gums.
