When we perform your teeth cleaning, we include a dental exam and several other services. We remove calculus and plaque, and we also polish your teeth.
Dental X-Rays may reveal tooth decay between your teeth, abscesses, cysts, bone loss, cancerous tumors, non-cancerous tumors, developmental abnormalities, tooth and root positions, and even problems inside of a tooth or below the gum line. Detecting one of these dental problems at an early stage can save you time, money, and unnecessary discomfort.
Your personal home care plays an important role in having a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, in the morning and before going to bed at night, with an ADA-approved soft bristle brush or electronic toothbrush. Don't forget the toothpaste.
When brushing your teeth, place the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gums and gently brush using a small, circular motion, ensuring that you always feel the bristles on your gums. Brush the inner and outer surfaces of each tooth, rinse your mouth and then brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
Floss daily in order to clean between the teeth and under the gum line. It's a good idea to consult with your dentist or dental hygienist to see if it's appropriate for you
