Comprehensive dental hygiene is the first line of defense against tooth diseases and decay. Dental hygienists in Affordable Dentistry will examine your mouth for the signs of dental problems and do all prophylactic measures to cause or prevent development of tooth and gum diseases.
Why regular cleaning is important?
Did you know that daily tooth brushing and flossing is not always enough? There are hard-to- reach zones that we cannot clean properly when brushing teeth. When plaque forms and builds up, it turns into tartar (calculus) that cannot be removed by brushing only. Hard deposits of tartar may damage and destroy enamel, not mentioning its aesthetic drawback.
We recommend going through professional dental hygiene at least twice a year to prevent tartar formation and maintain healthy smile. Regular examinations allow revealing tooth problems in time.
How do we perform dental cleaning?
To start with, your teeth and gums will be examined for the signs of diseases and inflammations. Oral hygienists from Affordable Dentistry use advanced instruments and techniques to remove hard calculus deposits on your teeth and between them. As soon as tartar it removed, you will go through the next step: using a high-powered electric brush a dentist will clean the surface of teeth.
After that, professional flossing and rinsing is performed to get rid of the tartar and debris that might have left. We use rinse products with liquid fluoride, and finish the procedure with fluoride gel to protect teeth from bacteria and staining.
After cleaning, oral hygienists from Affordable Dentistry show patients how to remove plaque and prevent formation of tartar and consult about oral hygiene products and methods.
Keep in mind that regular examinations and oral hygiene are essential for dental health. With Affordable Dentistry, it will be budget-friendly and simple as have never before!
