Why You Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning
Proper oral hygiene is essential to prevent gum infections, tooth decay, and other serious dental problems. Your hygienist at Riverton Dental can give you a deep cleaning that only a professional can provide. These cleanings set the foundation for a healthy mouth. For the best possible oral health, it is strongly recommended that you visit your dentist approximately every six months for a comprehensive cleaning.
What You Can Expect
A skilled hygienist will thoroughly clean your mouth, teeth, and gums, and he will make it a pleasant experience. These regular cleanings will be a powerful ally in your fight against gum disease and tooth decay. The six-month check-up will also provide your dentist with the chance to diagnose problems that may require more serious attention.
Removing Plaque and Tartar
Our dental hygienist will use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar around the gum line, as well as in between your teeth. The more tartar is in the mouth, the more time will be needed to clean your teeth and gums correctly. Tartar can only be removed in the dental office as we have the right tools and training to correctly scrape it away without damaging the enamel of your teeth.
Once your teeth are properly cleaned, we will use a high-powered toothbrush and toothpaste to clean them. Correct cleaning will help to remove any tartar left behind after scaling.
Our hygienist or dental assistant will floss your teeth to remove any bacteria left behind. Correct flossing is one of the best ways to help keep your gums healthy and to remove leftover toothpaste after the brushing.
Rinsing and Fluoride Treatment
Rinsing helps to remove leftover toothpaste from your mouth. Fluoride treatment is applied for younger children to help strengthen the enamel of the teeth. We do provide adult fluoride treatments as well based on need.
