At SF Green Dentist, we recommend a regular dental exam and cleaning every 6 months to remove tartar and plaque on the surface of the teeth.
As part of your regular cleaning and dental exam, we will take measurements of your gums to test whether you have any gum recession or gum disease.
If we recognize any signs of gum disease, we will typically recommend a dental deep cleaning or other periodontal treatment. At our office, we use ultrasonic tools and laser treatment for dental deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing.
Laser teeth cleaning offers a more precise removal of bacteria below the gum line with little to no discomfort.
