Dr. Budhani is devoted helping his patients truly understand their teeth and their oral health concerns. Your annual exam will include a teeth cleaning to prevent oral health concerns, and if Dr. Budhani spots any concerns, he will take the time to explain what is happening, why you are showing signs of tooth decay or gingivitis, and what your next steps should be.
Why Dental Cleanings Are Important
Bacteria naturally builds up on the surface of our teeth over time because the sugars from the foods and beverages we consume react with our saliva. This reaction creates an acid that can break down tooth enamel, plaque. While daily brushing and flossing can help remove plaque from the surface of your teeth and stave off gingivitis, professional teeth cleanings help ensure that all of the hard-to-reach plaque is removed from the surface of your teeth.
During your cleaning and exam, Dr. Budhani will be able to see any early warning signs of more serious oral health issues such as tooth decay or gum disease. If Dr. Budhani does spot any signs of oral health concerns, he will develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
What Dental Cleanings Prevent:
Regular teeth cleanings prevent the excessive build up of plaque and help prevent against tooth decay and gingivitis. Both tooth decay and gingivitis can lead to serious oral health concerns, and the best way to cure serious tooth decay, an abscess, or periodontal disease is to prevent it.
Types of Dental Cleanings:
- Routine cleaning: During a routine dental cleaning, Dr. Budhani will identify the plaque and tartar on your teeth and begin by removing it. Once Dr. Budhani removes the plaque, your dental hygienist will polished your teeth.
- Scaling & root planing or deep cleaning: Scaling and root planing is a type of teeth cleaning that is used on patients with periodontal disease. During this deeper cleaning, Dr. Budhani will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth all the way down the root of your tooth to prevent further damage to your gum and bone tissues. If you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease, scaling and root planing is essential. Deep cleanings like this prevent decay and tooth loss.
- Periodontal maintenance: Periodontal maintenance is a deeper cleaning of the entire tooth and gum structure. Throughout the course of this cleaning, Dr. Budhani will remove the plaque and tartar build-up from the root of your tooth all the way down to the end of the tooth where your tooth, gum, and bone meet.
During your regular exam, Dr. Budhani will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums. During this exam, any signs of tooth decay and gingivitis as early as possible. If you have any questions about dental health or your treatment during your cleaning, Br. Budhani and his staff will be more than happy to help you with anything you need.
