Scheduling and attending regular cleanings is important for your dental health. Your dentist or dental hygienist has been professionally trained to clean and take care of your teeth in a way that you cannot do on your own within the walls of your home. Exams give your dentist a chance to evaluate your dental health and help prevent any serious problems.

During the regular cleanings, you can expect your dentist or hygienist to perform the following tasks:

  • Scaling
  • Root Planing
  • Polishing

Throughout these steps and procedures, the plaque and tartar from the usually unreachable spots of your teeth will be cleaned, your gums will be cleaned in pockets that your at-home hygienic instruments cannot clean, and your teeth will be polished. The dentist and hygienist will have a chance to look for abnormalities and evaluate the condition of older work and restorations which have been performed for your dental health.

Attending regular cleanings is important because it will help you avoid unnecessary dental problems. Call us today, and let us know when we can schedule your next dental cleaning.
