Regular dental cleanings and proper at-home maintenance help ensure good oral health and help maintain a beautiful smile. As a basic, ongoing part of your dental health, you should visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups. At home, regular brushing and flossing should occur. These healthy habits should start early in childhood and continue into adulthood. The regular cleanings and checkups we provide is a part of our overall comprehensive family dentistry services.
Dental hygiene is important for all ages, even as soon as teeth begin to erupt in a child’s mouth. Teaching a child how to properly brush and floss and encouraging these habits early on are important for a healthy mouth. Taking your child to the dentist for regular cleanings and checkups not only helps reinforce these healthy habits, but also allows your child to learn proper techniques for caring for their teeth, in a way that they can understand.
Keep in mind, dental hygiene is for adults too. As an adult, if you maintain proper dental hygiene, you are more likely to preserve your healthy smile for the long haul. By following through with your regular cleanings and checkups, we are able to make note of any changes in your dental health. This enables us to take action as soon as an issue occurs, resulting in less invasive treatment, rather than waiting until a tooth is too far-gone. We also want to ensure you are using safe products that are most effective for your teeth and oral health.
Regular teeth cleanings can prevent the buildup of tartar and help maintain bright, white teeth. Regular cleanings also allow your dentist the opportunity to monitor the status of your oral health. Identifying dental problems early on is ideal in treatment to avoid more invasive, expensive procedures. Regular cleanings provide a deeper cleaning of your teeth and gums, something you simply cannot do on your own at home. The removal of tartar buildup helps ensure healthier teeth and gums, which prevent irritation of the gums, gum disease, and tooth loss.
