Dr. Mehta’s Dental Hygienists
Even individuals who are very conscientious about their dental hygiene need professional dental cleanings. We take teeth cleaning to the next level! Since every person’s oral health differs, dental cleanings should differ. Therefore, each of our hygienists is trained in multiple cleaning techniques. Below are some of the methods and reasons we use them.
- Prophylaxis (prophy) – We use this normal cleaning method to remove plaque build-up. This cleaning is used when there is no indication of periodontal disease and gum pockets are pink and firm.
- Full mouth debridement – This method is primarily used for those who have significant tartar collections. Tartar build-up usually occurs when there has not been a professional dental cleaning preformed.
- Gingival bacteria reduction – In cases where gingivitis is present, we combine prophylaxis and deep gum cleaning strategies to help patients to heal bacteria infected gums.
- Site-specific laser therapy – If bacteria infects have penetrated deep into the gums and have been allowed to grow, it can affect bone. We use site-specific laser therapy coupled with anti-bacterial agents to destroy deep pockets of bacteria.
Our professional teeth cleaning sessions are specifically designed to help our patients have the best oral health possible.
