Fully-fledged dental hygiene is the first line of defense against tooth decay, gum disease and infections. Dental hygienists in Affordable Dentistry of South Florida will check you for the signs of dental problems and perform all possible prophylactic and preventative measures to avoid development of tooth and gum diseases.
Importance of dental cleaning
Did you know that daily brushing and flossing are not always enough? We have hard-to-reach teeth zones that cannot be cleaned properly during brushing. Plaque can build up and form tartar (calculus) which can be removed only in dentist’s office. Hard deposits of tartar may damage and destroy enamel and surrounding tissues and be highly unaesthetic.
To prevent collection of tartar, you should go through professional dental cleaning at least once every six months. Regular examinations allow detecting teeth problems and fix issues before they strike with more work and costs.
What does dental cleaning include?
To start with, your teeth and gums will be examined for the signs of diseases and inflammation. Our Registered Dental Hygienists at Affordable Dentistry of South Florida use state-of-art tools and techniques to remove hard calculus deposits on your teeth and in between them. Then, using a high-powered electric brush polishes the surface of teeth.
After that, professional flossing and rinsing is performed to remove leftovers of tartar and debris. We use rinse products with liquid fluoride and finish the procedure with fluoride gel to protect teeth from bacteria and staining.
Our oral hygienists explain patients how to remove plaque and prevent tartar collection. They also recommend efficient hygiene products and methods.
Keep in mind that regular visits to your dentist and oral hygiene are essential for dental health. With Affordable Dentistry of South Florida, it won’t hurt your budget!
