You can brush and floss your teeth as thoroughly as you want but it won’t get rid of all traces of food particles — some will inevitably get stuck between your teeth or in deep recesses of your mouth that you can’t reach. These food particles will eventually turn into plaque or tartar, which will lead to further bacterial infestation. At URBN Dental Houston, we care about your oral hygiene and provide thorough dentist teeth cleaning services to prevent gum disease and periodontal disease altogether.

FAQs about Teeth Cleanings
When was the last time that you visited your deep cleaning teeth dental hygienist? If it was over 6 months ago, you may have a lot of dental plaque and tartar in your teeth and gums. When food particles collect in your teeth, they eventually turn into a sticky coating or film over your teeth known as plaque. Over time, the plaque hardens and becomes hard to remove manually — that’s tartar.Dental plaque and tartar accumulation lead to bacterial infection, which can also lead to gingivitis, periodontal disease, and bone loss. Dental Teeth Cleaning is a preventative procedure that comprises deep scaling, root planing, and fluoride treatment to remove every last trace of accumulated plaque to prevent such complications from occurring.
Gum disease and periodontal disease can happen to anyone, regardless of how well you brush and floss your teeth because you can’t reach all the food particles on your own. This is further exacerbated if you have misaligned or crooked teeth that make it more likely for food particles to get stuck. As already mentioned, this can lead to dental plaque and tartar, which can lead to gum disease and periodontal disease.
Gum disease is largely caused by a bacterial infection in your mouth, which happens because bacteria are drawn to plaque and tartar. Over time, as these bacteria start spreading, they create small pockets of spaces between your gums and your teeth. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, you’re safe till these spaces are less than 3 millimeters deep. However, bacterial infection causes these pockets to widen beyond 5 millimeters, which is extremely dangerous.
Furthermore, you won’t really notice gum disease until it’s too late. The initial warning signs of gum disease are pretty benign — bad breath, yellow teeth, slight toothaches. You may not do anything about gum disease until you have reddish or bleeding gums, and, by that time, gum disease has already progressed too far. In that case, you may also experience bone loss and loss of teeth.
That’s why dentist teeth cleaning is so important — because it can help you avoid some serious complications.
It’s not enough to simply go for a deep cleaning teeth session, you have to regularly maintain oral hygiene. The following tips will show you how to maintain perfect oral health even after the dentist teeth cleaning:
- Use a dentist-recommended toothpaste and toothbrush to brush your teeth at least twice a day.
- Remove all traces of food particles stuck between your teeth and gums by flossing after meals.
- Use an antibacterial fluoride mouthwash to rinse your mouth regularly. This will help kill all bacteria.
- Be sure to schedule dentist teeth cleaning sessions every 3 to 6 months.
I had a root canal and a crown done here, the entire process took about an hour. Will be back in 2 weeks for my final crown! Great doctor, great staff.
From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class
In town for a conference. Chipped a front tooth before my presentation. Called URBN and they got me in same day. Very efficient office. In less than 1 hour I was back together. Thanks again
Just a few days after a visit with Dr. Bridget and I already feel the positive effects on my dental hygiene. She gave helpful and practical tips to brushing and flossing to make my routine more enjoyable. Everyone at URBN Dental Uptown was attentive and courteous to my needs from handling the insurance/financials to ensuring a pain/mess-free cleaning and filling. Looking forward to returning with improved dental health!
I’ve never been to a more thorough and comprehensive dental appointment as the one at URBN Dental! They went over all of the photos and x-rays with me in detail to help explain all of the issues I had, and it’s the first time I fully feel like I understand why I need to floss more consistently. They taught me how to properly floss and brush, and I even got a new electric toothbrush with my appointment. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I’ve had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white. They were very knowledgeable in regards to my insurance and I’ve had no issues. The service there is impeccable!
Adult Teeth Cleaning Procedure
Now that you know what adult teeth cleaning is and why it’s important, let’s go through all the steps in a normal dental cleaning procedure.
During this part, the deep cleaning teeth dental hygienist will use a scalar device to scrape off all the traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth. It may also be spread out across the gum line so the dental hygienist will have to explore your oral extremities as well.
This procedure will only be necessary if your gum disease has progressed to a state where the pockets between your gums and teeth have widened considerably. In this case, the root planing procedure will be used to smooth out the surface of the tooth’s root so the tooth can be reattached to the gums. This procedure may be uncomfortable and it may also require several sittings.
Next, the deep cleaning teeth dental hygienist will start brushing and flossing your teeth using an electric toothbrush and an abrasive toothpaste that thoroughly scrubs the surface of your teeth. This will help with removing plaque and tartar — if they’re still left.
Fluoride treatment basically comprises rinsing your mouth with a fluoride solution in order to kill all the remaining bacteria. Following that, a foamy fluoride gel will be applied to your teeth and you’ll have to wear a mouthpiece to help the fluoride solution settle down. This will ensure that your teeth remain free from bacterial decay and infections for several months.
