A Thorough Cleaning
Even if you vigilantly brush and floss your teeth every day, it’s still important to come in for regular cleanings by a dental professional. At-home dental hygiene is effective at removing one kind of oral bacteria buildup called plaque, which is just a sticky film that coats your teeth and gums. But if it’s not thoroughly removed after a couple days, that plaque hardens and becomes tartar.
Tartar can’t be removed with regular brushing and flossing because it bonds closely to your enamel. And the longer tartar lingers on your teeth and gums, the more it accelerates tooth decay and gum disease and complicates maintaining a clean mouth.
During your cleaning, one of our talented hygienists will remove plaque and tartar using special tools. When all is said and done, you’ll leave the office with a smile that feels smooth and looks shinier than when you walked in!
A Comprehensive Exam
While the hygienist cleans your smile, they’ll also be closely assessing the health of your teeth and gums. We’ll be checking for the earliest signs of decay and gum disease. When you commit to coming in every six months for routine checkups, this allows us to better catch dental complications when they’re minor and relatively easy to address. This can prevent costly curative procedures later on!
We’ll also take digital X-rays of your mouth. This technology gives us highly detailed images of your mouth while exposing you to less radiation than traditional X-ray methods.
Then, you’ll have an opportunity to chat with the dentist about any questions or concerns you might have. This is a great time to get to discuss any long-term goals you have for your smile!
