Best Ways to Clean Your Teeth

It is always a good idea to get your teeth cleaned by a professional. Though brushing and flossing are indispensable parts of keeping your teeth clean; only an expert can help you get rid of the tartar and plaque that are often formed in your teeth, according to Dr. LaFrom, one of the leading dentists in the Cupertino region.


Dr. LaFrom says that based on your frequency of visiting the dentist, three types of teeth cleanings can be offered. People having healthy gums and minimal tartar, plaque and debris buildup are usually advised to undergo “prophylaxis” – which is commonly called the regular teeth cleaning procedure.


Patients showing signs of gum disease like deep gum pockets, tartar and plaque buildup under the gum line and/or bleeding gums require a more intensive procedure of teeth cleaning and usually go for deep cleaning.


The last procedure called the periodontal maintenance treatments are meant for those patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal ailments.
