Good Home Care Is Not Enough
Whether you are fastidious about oral hygiene or don’t always brush and floss enough, cleaning your teeth at home isn’t enough to get them completely clean. Plaque is a sticky film that builds up on your teeth. Over time, the plaque hardens into tartar on the surfaces of the teeth and below the gumline. The bacteria that is present in plaque leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
Plaque is challenging to remove from your teeth and brushing and flossing alone isn’t enough to eliminate it. Dental hygienists are equipped with the training and tools needed to effectively remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and below the gumline to help reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.
How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
It is recommended that you visit our office for a professional dental cleaning and examination at least once every six months. Preventative dentistry is an essential part of maintaining a healthy smile.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Knowing what to expect often helps patients feel less anxious about coming to our office for professional teeth cleaning in Pueblo. Prior to starting the cleaning, our dental hygienist will evaluate the overall health of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues.
The professional cleaning includes:
- Removing plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth
- Removing hardened plaque and tartar from below the gumline to prevent gum disease
- Polishing the teeth to remove surface stains and leave them cleaner and whiter
The focus of regular cleanings is to help remove buildup of plaque and tartar to help your teeth and gums stay healthy and prevent cavities. At the time of your professional cleaning, we may recommend other treatments to prevent tooth decay and keep your teeth healthy. Fluoride treatments are used to strengthen the teeth and help reduce the risk of developing cavities.
A general cleaning is usually enough for most patients. However, if you have any evidence that gum disease is developing, a deeper cleaning may be needed. These cleanings are more in depth to remove the bacteria and infection from below the gumline to restore your oral health and prevent the development of more serious gum disease.
Tips for Oral Hygiene at Home
In addition to regular professional teeth cleaning, it is important to practice good oral hygiene at home to maintain your cleaner and brighter smile. We often provide tips for proper brushing and flossing to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss every day. If you have a problem with tooth decay or gum disease, we may offer additional advice about maintaining your oral health.
