You do everything you can when it comes to taking care of your teeth. You brush regularly, you floss, and you even use mouthwash. However, the best way to keep your teeth white, bright, and healthy is to also include a professional teeth cleaning every six months. Not only does a professional cleaning help remove harmful bacteria, but it also keeps you healthier in your daily life.

When it comes to the health of your teeth, the main culprit that you need to watch out for is plaque. This acidic substance is created by bacteria within your mouth that feed on the sugars that you eat. Plaque can, over time, pull minerals from your teeth and cause tooth decay.

Fortunately, a professional dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, can help prevent the buildup of plaque. A proper cleaning from Severn River Dental Health Center will remove bacteria and plaque, and will prevent plaque from building up enough to cause dental diseases.

Unfortunately, a regular cleaning isn’t enough if you possess periodontal disease. This disease causes gum tissues to peel away from the teeth, which in turn leads to bone loss and gingival recession. If you don’t receive professional help, your teeth may lose support from the surrounding tissues and may even fall out over time. Fortunately, Scaling and Root Planning or a "Deep Cleaning" can help with periodontal disease. This type of cleaning involves going deeper to remove bacteria and calculus from the root surface of teeth.
