Professional Teeth Cleaning in Casper

A teeth cleaning is a preventative dental treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Regularly scheduled teeth cleanings are important for stopping the progression of gingivitis and gum disease.

Dental cleanings are an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

At Advanced Family Dental, we recommend that you schedule a teeth cleaning twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for patients who suffer from gum disease.
