Professional Dental Cleaning
Your oral health is our top priority. It is important that you schedule your dental visits at least every six months for a professional dental cleaning. Our skilled hygienist team will safely remove all plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth. Your teeth will then be flossed and polished. For children, dental fluoride may be applied to strengthen the tooth enamel. Our dentist will then examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay and other issues. Dental X-rays may be used to help determine the best dental plan to keep your smile healthy and long lasting.
Dental fluoride is a mineral that strengthens the tooth enamel against acid attacks from everyday food and drinks that can cause dental caries. Our hygienist may apply fluoride to your child’s teeth during their routine dental appointment.
Dental sealants are a plastic protective coating that is painted thinly over the chewing surfaces of the molars and premolars. The sealant quickly bonds into the grooves of the back teeth and blocks out food particles and plaque protecting the teeth from decay. Sealants can last up to 10 years.
Regular dental visits are ideally paired with proper dental care at home. A regular brushing and flossing routine of at least twice a day (once in the morning and once at night) and or after meals, using an antimicrobial mouthwash, and flossing at least once a day, helps to keep disease causing bacteria from reproducing in your mouth and causing tooth decay.
