Routine dental cleanings, also called dental hygiene appointments, are the best way we can help you prevent gum disease and bone loss. A dental cleaning removes plaque, calculus and restores the health of your gums. It is also proven to brighten your smile by removing staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine or other foods and beverages.
You might be wondering why you should integrate routine cleaning appointments into your busy annual schedule? It has been scientifically proven that, through ultrasonic scaling, trained dental hygienists can disrupt the biofilm made of sugar and harmful bacteria that is hiding underneath your gums. While your at home oral care might be optimal, getting the bristles of the toothbrush into some hard to reach areas can be a challenge.
Based on the current health of your gums and in order to restore them to their best possible health, your dental hygienist could recommend regular cleanings two, three or even four times a year. She will also review your at home oral care routine, giving you tips on the ideal when and how. Please do not shy away from any questions or concerns you might have, we are here to help you make the most of your oral health!
