Oral hygiene and cleaning are also referred to as either “routine care” or “preventative care”, and both terms are accurate. Oral hygiene and professional cleaning are the first defense in dental care, treating dental issues and eliminating plaque and tartar before they cause more serious problems. These yearly visits are vital to both your short and long term oral health.
Regular appointments don’t just keep your teeth looking clean so you have a beautiful smile! They’re also important for your health. When we clean your teeth, we’re actually giving you that ounce of prevention that’s worth a pound of cure. Removing plaque and tartar prevents both decay and periodontal issues. In addition, we assess your gums, teeth, and mouth for overall health, and administer fluoride treatments to keep your teeth strong. X-rays let us detect issues in the jaw or below the gumline. And that polishing we give your teeth? It doesn’t just make your teeth gleam; the resulting smooth surface makes it difficult for plaque to take hold.
To make sure you’re continuing all this good preventative work at home, we provide proper brushing and flossing technique.
We love to answer any questions you have about your oral hygiene, just as much as we love to see you leaving with a big, bright smile!
