Teeth Cleaning Dentist
Teeth cleaning is the removal of dental plaque and tartar from teeth to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Severe gum disease causes at least one-third of adult tooth loss.
Teeth cleaning is part of the typical oral hygiene process. Most people clean their teeth daily with brushing and dental floss and then Dr. Shirin, your friendly Thousand Oaks dentist, cleans the hard-to-get-to areas and removes hardened plaque deposits.
We recommend that you brush daily with a soft toothbrush and also floss to remove interdental plaque. Doing so will prevent the build-up of plaque bacteria on the teeth. Excessive plaque can deteriorate the teeth leading to teeth fillings or progress to a root canal or tooth loss. It also can cause periodontal disease which will require a deep teeth cleaning and more advanced gum treatments.
