Even if your at-home dental hygiene routine is impeccable, seeing a dentist for regular teeth cleaning is essential.
Professional cleanings reach and remove plaque, tartar and buildup that cannot be removed with a toothbrush alone.
A dental cleaning does more than just clean your teeth—it contributes to your overall physical and mental wellness. Oftentimes, problems in your mouth can either lead to or be an indication of disease in other parts of your body. We recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice annually.
At our dental office, we pride ourselves on offering thorough—yet gentle—teeth cleaning services. Our dentists and hygienists are highly experienced to provide top-notch dental care in a clean and comfortable environment. We will explain the cleaning procedure and highlight areas of both positive dental hygiene, as well as where there is room for improvement. We’ll even show you the proper technique for brushing and flossing your teeth at home.
PERIODONTAL (GUM) EVALUATION
Our hygienists will also perform what’s called a pocket reading, which helps us gauge your level of or risk for gum disease. Depending on your reading, we will either help you maintain your good oral health, treat your gingivitis, or address more serious levels of periodontitis.
If you are overly anxious about having your teeth cleaned or receiving dental care, you may be a candidate for sedation dentistry. Our dentists are trained and certified in sedation dentistry—contact us to learn more.
General dentistry and maintaining good oral hygiene can effectively ward off gum disease and support your body’s entire immune system. Excessive plaque and tartar buildup causes your body’s immune system to go into overdrive, ultimately increasing your risk of stroke, heart disease and even dementia. Regular teeth cleaning keeps your mouth clean, your immune system strong, and your risk for more serious diseases lower.
