Beyond Brushing: Professional Cleaning

You may take good care of your teeth, brushing and flossing as you should, but only a professional cleaning will address certain types of buildups on the teeth and under the gums – and plaque is the enemy of healthy teeth! At Ladone Family Dental, we deliver custom teeth cleaning in Lisle to keep your mouth and teeth gleaming with health.

Why Do You Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning?

A professional teeth cleaning does far more than regular brushing and flossing and is a critical procedure to ward off gum disease – a main reason for early tooth loss. Our teeth cleanings help prevent cavities, keep your breath fresh, make it possible to detect any broken fillings or developing cavities and treat these issues before they get worse. 

What is Plaque?

Plaque is a sticky film that develops on the teeth. It is caused by the combination of mouth bacteria and sugary or starchy foods. When left without being removed, it will harden into another substance, called “tartar.”

What is Tartar?

Tartar is hardened plaque that can build up on the teeth, between the teeth, and beneath the gum surface. The tartar becomes hard, often discolored, and is bonded to the tooth enamel, impossible to remove without the help of a dental professional.

Gum Disease and Physical Health – What’s the Link?

Gum disease has been linked with cardiovascular health, and maintaining healthy gums helps to support your overall health. Ensure you undergo a thorough professional teeth cleaning every six months. If you have struggled with gum disease in the past, more frequent cleanings can be very beneficial. No home brushing can give you that ultra-fresh, brilliant look of a professional teeth cleaning in Naperville! If you haven’t visited a dentist for some time, you can expect a very positive experience when under the care of the team at Ladone Family Dental!

Step by Step, Your Teeth Cleaning

The first step of our teeth cleaning in Lisle is an overall evaluation of your teeth and gums to see how they are faring since your last visit. A full examination is a vital aspect of maintaining dental and oral health and can spot the symptoms of developing gum disease and cavities or other issues of concern. The plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth and around the gum line, and between your teeth will all be carefully and thoroughly removed.

A special dental brush is then used to deep clean and remove any tiny remaining bits of tartar or plaque. The dental paste used is gritty, scrubbing away surface buildups and stains. Your teeth are then professionally flossed for the final step. If you need a fluoride treatment to keep your teeth protected against cavities between visits, the fluoride treatment is performed last. When you are done, you will love the way your teeth feel! 

Deep Cleanings

Some of our patients have struggled with gum disease in the past, and may need regular deep cleanings, an even more thorough approach. This procedure often requires two appointments. You have no worries about experiencing pain or discomfort, as the area will be numbed with anesthetic before your teeth cleaning in Wheaton. This procedure involves removing tartar buildups below the gum line. At Ladone Family Dental, we are equipped with the most advanced dental technology, and may use a specialized ultrasonic device to dislodge buildups of tartar or plaque. This procedure helps to slow or prevent further damage from gum disease and treating the condition early can help you avoid more invasive treatments. We do all we can to make the experience comfortable, painless, and fast.
