Regular professional cleanings will help you prevent cavities, avoid tooth loss, brighten your smile and lower your risk of developing certain medical conditions like heart disease and stroke.
Why do I need to have my teeth cleaned?
Removing stains and deposits improves not just the appearance of your teeth, but your overall health. If not removed, plaque can cause cavities, gingivitis, gum disease and tooth loss. Poor oral health can contribute to more serious health problems, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and respiratory complications.
How often should I go in for a cleaning?
Tartar and plaque form in the mouth at different rates. For this reason, some people need more frequent cleanings than others. Whether you need a cleaning every 3, 4 or 6 months will depend on a number of factors, including your overall health and diet, the effectiveness of your home care and the health of your teeth and gums. At JVR Dental, we’ll work with you to develop a cleaning schedule that fits your unique requirements and an individualized treatment plan that is designed to protect and improve your oral health.
What’s the cleaning process like?
Cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar, polishing your teeth and applying topical fluoride. Your hygienist will also help you with brushing and flossing techniques to help prevent future dental issues.
