Why Are Dental Cleanings So Important?
Dental cleanings are important because they thoroughly remove the tartar and plaque that accumulate on and in between your teeth and gums. We use modern dental tools, technology, and techniques to accomplish this. While your daily dental hygiene routine may be developed and well-informed, there are hard-to-reach places that only a dentist's tools and expert technique can address.
Gum disease is a good example of an oral health issue that is difficult to detect unless you attend your biannual dental cleanings. We perform periodontal charting to check for signs of gum recession, which can be an indicator of gum disease.
Preventive dental care is essential regardless of your age. Every age group comes with its own dental challenges and issues, which is why we provide preventive treatments and services that span from children to seniors.
Children: Your toddler's milk teeth are an important part of their developing smile. That is why we offer gentle dental cleanings and preventive treatments for children as young as three years old. Our preventive treatments include fluorides and sealants to protect and strengthen their teeth. We also teach your children how to properly brush and floss their teeth using kid-friendly language.
Teens: As teens mature, more of their adult teeth erupt, transforming their smile. We monitor for any bite malocclusions that would require orthodontic treatment and will refer you to a trusted orthodontist if needed. With their increased freedom, your teen may also be consuming more junk food and soda, which will impact aspects of their oral health. This is one of the reasons we provide education to help your teen develop good oral hygiene habits and fully understand why a healthy diet is important so they can smile confidently throughout life.
Adults and Seniors: Adults and seniors face oral health complications that are unique to those who have permanent teeth. Our preventive services include sealants to protect teeth as well as fluorides to strengthen teeth and help minimize tooth sensitivity issues. We provide periodontal charting and provide tips and information to help you prevent or halt gum disease. Our team also performs visual screening for oral cancer during your biannual cleanings.
Providing the quality dental care you deserve is a non-negotiable for our team. When you visit us for your biannual dental cleaning, our compassionate team will take the time to talk with you and ask questions to fully understand your concerns and smile goals. We will perform a gentle and thorough exam, complete with digital x-rays, to create a treatment plan that encompasses all your oral health needs, including any additional preventive measures needed to boost your overall health.
We know that knowledge is the key to making informed decisions, which is why we discuss our findings, how various items affect your teeth, gums, and jaws, and provide education, so you're empowered to protect your smile through your daily hygiene routine.
