Brushing your teeth twice and flossing daily should be part of everyone’s daily oral health routine, but it won’t replace the preventative measures that come from regularly scheduled teeth cleanings. So if you don’t brush and floss daily, professional in-house teeth cleanings will be even more important!
After thorough teeth cleaning from our dental hygienist your teeth will feel brand new and be up to a few shades lighter than before. Teeth cleanings aren’t just for aesthetic effect however, they help prevent future dental problems that might arise.
Why are Teeth Cleanings Important?
It’s important that a dental professional regularly examines and cleans your teeth to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and discoloration which naturally happens over the years. The main point of preventative dentistry is to prevent future tooth loss that occurs from decay & periodontal disease. That will save you from oral health problems that will eventually occur and costly dental bills.
Maintaining your routine dental exams and teeth cleanings is important because, at these routine appointments, the bacteria accumulation can be stopped at an early stage to prevent further damage to teeth and gums. Maintaining good oral health will also help improve your overall health in the long run.
In order to maintain healthy oral, visit our dentist twice a year for professional cleaning and maintain good oral hygiene habits. Not only will your teeth be stronger, but you’ll also leave with an amazing smile.
Teeth Cleaning & Deep Cleaning
Regular teeth cleanings remove calculus & bacteria build-up from your teeth which helps prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease. Teeth cleaning from our hygienist will only remove build-up from the teeth and slightly below the gum line. For more serious cases of plaque and tartar that involve bleeding gums, deep, inflamed, and swollen periodontal pockets a deep cleaning will be necessary.
Scaling and Root Planing more commonly known as Deep Cleaning is a dental treatment sometimes required for patients who have missed a few routine dental cleanings and have accumulated plaque and bacteria under the gums. The results of this accumulation can be bone loss and the recession of your gum line, which is then followed by growing tooth sensitivity. This condition is more commonly knows as Periodontitis or Gingivitis.
What to Expect from a Dental Exam, & X-rays
During a dental examination, our dental staff will clean your teeth and check for gum disease. A dental exam might also include X-rays taken from a state-of-the-art machine designed to take high-quality 3D imaging of your teeth. Our dental office is warm and inviting to reduce anxiety and provide the most comfortable experience possible for you and your family.
