Dental Hygiene Appointments Keep You Smiling
Visiting the dentist is often a task that many patients put off, but without routine dental hygiene cleanings problems tend to compound over time. It is a generally accepted and understood belief that the average patient should visit the dentist at least twice a year. This is to ensure the teeth, gums, and oral structures stay healthy, clean, and any concerns are identified early. And if fear or anxiety is what keeps you away from the dentist, you’ll be happy to know that the more often you come and have your teeth cleaned and evaluated, the easier and shorter every future appointment becomes!
The Benefits of Routine Dental Hygiene Cleanings
- Keep teeth white by removing surface level stains
- Protect teeth from cavities
- Remove plaque and tartar buildup
- Identify concerns and problems before they develop
- Make future appointments a breeze
Our Dental Hygiene Services
When you come in for a routine dental hygiene cleaning, there truly is nothing to fear! Our treatments are designed to simply clean and evaluate, and no major procedures are done. Additionally, dental hygiene cleanings are quick to perform and most patients are in and out within an hour! So when it comes to your dental and overall health, one hour every six months is not too bad! A few services we can provide include:
- Professional Teeth Cleanings
Brushing and flossing at least twice a day at home is always good, but its not often enough. When you have your teeth professionally cleaned, the hardened tartar and plaque can get removed and the stuck bits of food removed.
- Evaluation of Oral Health
We check your mouth for any concerns like gum disease, cavities, and even oral cancer. These screenings performed twice a month help keep you healthy and make sure we can address any problems before they get bigger!
- Periodontal Treatment
If you’ve suffered from gum disease in the past or are showing signs of the disease, we can provide treatments to slow or halt the progression. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss, so having this problem addressed will help keep your smile complete!
- Fluoride Treatments
Professional fluoride can be applied to teeth to help keep them strong. This will strengthen your tooth enamel and make it harder to develop cavities. Some patients may even be able to get sealants put on their teeth which act as a barrier between food and drinks and the tooth itself.
