Enjoy A Healthier Smile With Professional Cleanings
Regular professional dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining optimal oral health, even if brushing and flossing are done regularly. A series of recent studies on oral hygiene has found that an unhealthy mouth directly contributes to our body's health issues in general.
Professional cleanings from your dental hygienist helps you form consistent healthy habits by removing stubborn plaque and tarter buildup that cannot be removed by brushing alone.
Your dental hygienist will evaluate any potential problems with your teeth and gums before every cleaning, and this will greatly assist in the prevention of bacteria, gum disease, and tooth decay. As experts in patient education, your hygienist will also give you the information you want and need to keep your teeth healthy at home.
Tools to ensure a great professional cleaning experience.
- Care at home – practice good oral hygiene at home by brushing twice per day and flossing daily to ensure a fast and easy professional cleaning.
- Ultrasonic tools – we utilize ultrasonic tools to avoid excessive scraping and discomfort.
- Numbing gel – for sensitive teeth and gums, apply a topical numbing gel before your appointment!
What are the next steps?
Two factors affect optimal oral health: Your ability to brush and floss properly and your dedication to attending regular dental appointments. Without professional cleanings, this paves the way for decay, inflammation, and periodontal disease.
After removing examining your gums for signs of gum disease, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar build up on your teeth and at your gumline with an ultrasonic or professional too cleaning tool, before polishing your teeth with a special toothpaste. This polishing will help prevent future accumulation, which will help your teeth and gums stay healthy between appointments.
We will then schedule your next dental cleaning at your convenience.
