Professional teeth cleanings are key in preventing gum disease and other serious oral problems. At his state-of-the-art office in the Century City/Westwood area of Los Angeles, top-rated dentist Dr. Dani Benyaminy provides gentle and effective teeth cleanings.
Even patients who brush and floss religiously should have their teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Dentists and hygienists have the expertise and specialized instruments to remove tartar, plaque and bacteria buildup that even patients who practice good oral hygiene at home, can not get to themselves. Professionals use a cleaning technique called scaling performed with a gritty toothpaste to help remove stains from teeth surfaces. When scaling is completed, patients’ teeth are then flossed and polished.
Clean gums and teeth are instrumental in preventing gum disease, tooth decay, cavities and tooth loss. In addition, healthy dental hygiene benefits more than just your mouth. Gum disease is also associated with an increased risk of heart disease, bone loss, and stroke. Preventing dental problems through regular dental cleanings can also eliminate the need for time-consuming and costly repairs in the future.
Routine dental cleanings consist of two parts: the cleaning and an examination. During a routine checkup, teeth and gums are evaluated for signs of decay, gum disease cavities, and oral cancer. In addition, x-rays may be taken to look for potential issues under the gum line. Dr. Dani uses digital X-rays, which reduce radiation by 90% when compared to conventional film. Preventative fluoride treatments and/or sealants may also be recommended. Once the exam is complete, Dr. Dani will discuss his findings and the need for any follow-up treatment, such as fillings.
Patients who do not have any significant dental problems, such as gum disease, should have a routine cleaning and dental exam every six months. Dental insurance policies typically cover two cleanings per year. Individuals who have dental issues, such as periodontal disease, or are at a higher risk for oral problems, may be recommended for more frequent visits.
