What is included in my dental cleaning?
Included in JVR Dental’s dental cleanings are scaling, polishing and topical fluoride to help prolong the benefits of dental cleaning. The process begins with an overview examination completed by one of our trained oral hygienist professionals. Using a small mirror, the hygienist examines the teeth and gums for any potential concerns. After the examination has been completed, the oral hygienist will remove any plaque, tarter and other unwanted substances with a scaling brush. This can take a few minutes depending on the amount of plaque and tarter present on the teeth and gum lines.
After the scaling has been completed, the oral hygienist will proceed with a thorough cleaning and polishing to ensure the teeth are sparkly clean. This is followed up with flossing and a topical fluoride treatment. Fluoride is used to help protect your teeth until your next dental cleaning appointment. The final step in the dental cleaning process if for the dentist to expertly examine your teeth and gums to ensure everything is in good health. At this stage, the dentist may make recommendations with regards to brushing, flossing or other oral health care practices. Our team oral hygienists can assist with brushing and flossing techniques to prevent future problems.
The Importance of semi-annual dental cleanings
Dental cleaning is essential for good oral health care. The oral cavity is connected to the rest of the human body and is directly linked to your overall health and well-being. Good oral hygiene practices can help decrease the chances of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, periodontal disease and other serious health problems. It is important to book ongoing, semi-annual dental cleanings to maintain good oral health care and overall health.
The importance of plaque and tartar removal in dental cleanings
When the plaque that forms on our teeth is not removed, it can create cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, tooth loss and other serious oral health care problems. JVR Dental recommends professional dental cleanings on a semi-annual basis so that all unwanted plaque and tartar can be removed by an oral health care professional.
