WHY ARE DENTAL CLEANINGS IMPORTANT?
Even with regular brushing and flossing, it is difficult to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Over time, these substances can build up and lead to various dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. Dental cleanings help eliminate these harmful deposits, protecting your teeth and gums from potential damage.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A DENTAL CLEANING
When you visit our dental office for a cleaning, our friendly and experienced dental hygienist will start by examining your teeth and gums. They will use specialized instruments to carefully remove any plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth. This process is known as scaling. Next, they will polish your teeth using a gentle yet effective abrasive paste to remove any remaining stains and leave your teeth with a smooth and shiny finish. Finally, they will floss your teeth to ensure that all debris and particles are removed from hard-to-reach areas.
Research suggests a link between oral health and general health. Regular dental cleanings contribute to better overall health by reducing the risk of systemic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU SCHEDULE DENTAL CLEANINGS?
