, or a periodontal cleaning to help your gums return to good health, we can provide the necessary treatment for you.
When you come to our dental practice, you will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Upen J. Patel. At our dental practice, we know that a smile cannot be attractive unless it is healthy. The best way to keep your smile healthy is to come to our dental practice for regular dental exams, and to have a teeth cleaning in Sacramento CA
every six months. Even with the very best at-home dental cleaning regimen, some plaque will remain on teeth. Plaque not only causes dental cavities, but can also lead to gingivitis. When you have a teeth cleaning at our office, you will have plaque and tartar removed not only from on your teeth, but from between your teeth and from just below the gum line. If you have gingivitis, our dentist will probably recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. Tartar is formed when dental plaque remains on teeth; it is a hard, mineralized substance that can only be removed with professional dental cleaning instruments. If tartar stays on teeth, it will encourage the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums. If this occurs, our dentist will let you know that you have gum disease and will need a periodontal cleaning. A periodontal cleaning is called a scaling and root planing treatment. The goal of periodontal cleaning is to remove all plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria from the deep pockets that have formed between the teeth and gums. This will hopefully help the deep pockets to heal.
