One of the most important things you can do to care for your oral health is to visit the dentist regularly for check ups and dental cleanings. Most dentists recommend that you come to their office once every 6 to 12 months for a check-up and teeth cleaning. This can be a great time to ask any questions you might have, and make sure that your oral health is looking good.
Dental Cleanings – What to Expect
When you arrive at our office, you will be checked in and taken back to a comfortable seat where a well-trained dental hygienist will clean plaque, tartar, and other build up off of your teeth with a special tool. They will brush your teeth, floss your teeth, and even polish them! Your smile will look and feel amazing.
Dental cleanings are not scary or painful. They’re simply a great time to give your teeth a good deep cleaning and keep your teeth in as good of shape as possible. Plus, they make your teeth easier for your dentist to inspect so he or she can get a great view of all that’s going on with your teeth.
Dental cleanings and regular dental visits fall under the category of preventative dentistry. Preventative dentistry is defined as any procedure done to prevent cavities and other kind of dental damage from taking place. Regular preventive care is the best way to keep yourself from having to experience the physical and financial discomfort of difficult dental procedures.
Some simple preventative dentistry tips that you can do at home are to brush and floss every morning and night. These simple tasks can keep you feeling and looking better than ever. Plus, a good dental cleaning every 6 months will keep your smile looking radiant, bright, and fresh.
