The best way to maintain your oral health is to make regularly scheduled exams with your dentist. It is important that you are making appointments every 6 months to enhance your oral health.
During your examination, your dentist will check for any abnormalities concerning your mouth, teeth, and gums. Also, you will be provided with instructions about how to maintain your oral health for tooth brushing, flossing, and more!
One of the leading causes for gum disease is due to a buildup of plaque. Dental cleanings are performed by a hygienist and involves a three-step process: scaling, brushing, and flossing. Deep scaling involves using the removal of plaque with a scaling instrument.
Plaque is a white, sticky substance from an accumulation of bacteria. If plaque is left untreated, it turns into tartar—a hardened form of plaque on the tooth’s enamel. Afterward, we will brush your teeth with a gritty toothpaste to clean your teeth.
Professional flossing is essential to getting into hard-to-reach places to eliminate remaining food particles.
It is essential that you are staying on top of secure oral health to last for many years to come. As always, your dental care is our top priority! Contact us today to learn more!
