Teeth cleaning for a better quality of life
Teeth cleaning coupled with dental hygiene checkups on a regular basis are perhaps the most crucial service that a dental professional can perform. The two cannot only prevent damage to the teeth but can also be helpful in extending dental restorations’ lifespan. In addition, this is the best investment one can make when it comes to the health of the gums, teeth, and the whole body.
Preventive dentistry is the type of dentistry that you don’t require a license for you to practice. Your responsibility is to practice proper oral hygiene which includes brushing your teeth at least two times a day, and flossing every day.
As a matter of fact, preventive dentistry helps you save your smile, time and money by reducing your need for several other dental procedures. These include:
- Gum treatment
- Root canal
- White fillings
Dental Hygiene is a Joint Effort
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. This is why preventive dentistry is regarded as the best type of dentistry. Any dental patient will tell you how good it is for them never to be in need of any other type of treatment.
Also, it is important that you make teeth cleaning and dental hygiene appointments. Although teeth cleanings are at times dreaded, for most individuals it is a simple and painless procedure. If you are reluctant to make your dental appointment because of anxiety, sedation dentistry can help you to overcome that fear.
What Happens During Your Teeth Cleaning Visit
When you visit Wyndham Dental for teeth cleaning, your teeth will be cleaned and polished, making them look glossy and bright. You can also decide whether teeth whitening is necessary since a professional cleaning will bring out the true shade of the teeth.
Also, we will get rid of calcified plaque on your teeth known as tartar, in areas where you usually miss cleaning, using special dental instruments. These hard deposits provide a haven for bacteria in your mouth which can greatly contribute to gum disease.
Lastly, we will examine your mouth for symptoms of any problems that could be developing such as tooth decay, and if necessary, suggest minor treatments (for instance, gum treatment). This is important in preventing problems from escalating. Also, we might suggest changes to your daily dental hygiene routine.
