Brushing and flossing your teeth at home isn’t enough to protect or maintain your oral health. Routine dental checkups for an exam and dental cleanings, on the other hand, may provide a thorough examination and professional care when it comes to keeping your smile healthy! Come to The Smile Spa if it’s been a while since your last dental cleaning. We’d be delighted to assist you and your family in achieving healthy teeth.

 

Why are Dental Cleanings Important?

Even if you brush and floss your teeth religiously, having your teeth professionally cleaned regularly is essential. The first thing people notice about you is your smile. It’s what distinguishes you. Taking care of your smile is relatively straightforward, but it does require commitment. It also necessitates our assistance! Healthy teeth and gums are tormented by plaque and tartar. However, brushing and flossing aren’t always enough to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Regularly having your teeth cleaned and examined by Dr. Aimee Russo-Mounger and Dr. Alexis Russo, or one of our expert dental hygienists, will guarantee that all of that ugly plaque, tartar, and stains are gone. This will help you avoid cavities and gum disorders like gingivitis. 

 

How Often Do I Need  Dental Cleanings?

The American Dental Association recommends regular dental appointments to prevent dental disease and preserve your existing oral health. You should schedule dental checkups and cleanings every six months. Alternatively, as often as your dentist advises. Inflammation, infection, and decay can all be avoided with these regular checkups. You’re giving yourself the best chance to have a healthy and long-lasting smile by seeing a dentist near you frequently. Too many people put off seeing a dentist until they have a dental emergency, such as a painful cracked, chipped, or decaying tooth. If you put off dental hygiene until there’s a problem, you’ll end up with more complicated, expensive procedures, and in some circumstances, it’ll be too late to preserve the tooth. Schedule your dental cleaning today.

 

What Can I Expect During My Dental Cleaning?

Our dental hygienist, a highly trained specialist who is licensed, utilizes a special set of tools created specifically for this purpose, will  be the one who will clean your teeth. Because each person’s teeth are unique, we will customize your cleaning to meet your specific needs.

We will begin by doing an oral examination to assess the health of your oral tissues. The plaque and calculus will then be removed from the tooth surfaces using an ultrasonic and hand scaler. A hand-held ultrasonic scaler has a tiny tip that vibrates while using water at a very high frequency, breaking apart hardened deposits. Only mild pressure is required to eliminate any stubborn buildup, so you shouldn’t feel any discomfort. It is adjacent with hand scaling to remove all bacteria from teeth. Finally, a low-speed rotary brush with a soft rubber tip is used to polish your teeth using a slightly gritty, toothpaste-like paste. 

 

Dental Cleanings at The Smile Spa

Routine Dental Cleanings – Dental cleanings entail the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth’s surfaces and between them, above the gum line. It’s a relatively quick procedure that ends with your teeth being polished.

 

Deep Cleanings – Deep cleaning addresses bacteria buildup beneath the gum line and includes scaling and root planing. This more involved operation may necessitate local anesthetic and multiple visits.

 

Periodontal Disease Cleanings and Treatments – The cornerstone for a healthy oral cavity begins with your gums. They’re as essential as your teeth. At each visit they are checked to see if your gums are healthy, and if they aren’t, we’ll treat any signs of periodontal disease or refer you to someone who can.
