Oral hygiene is a crucial part of being healthy.
Your dental cleaning appointment will always include a routine dental cleaning, irrigation, fluoride treatment, oral hygiene instructions and personalized tips to maintain a healthy mouth and hygiene at home.
The cleaning involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. People will clean their own teeth by brushing and flossing, while the dental hygienist will remove hardened deposits of tartar that is not removed by routine cleaning.
An irrigation solution will be complimenting the cleaning by flushing away all the bacteria from the deepest sulcus of the gums. This solution is a disinfectant and has a prolonged bacteriostatic action due to adsorption onto the pellicle-coated enamel surface.
A fluoride treatment at the end of your dental cleaning will help strengthen your teeth, diminish sensitivity met with cold and teeth whitening.
Regular cleanings is crucial to prevent build up of tartar, bone loss, bad breath and cavities. Prevention is key, and much more affordable. Ask us when you are due for your next cleaning to stay on track.
