Dental Cleanings and Oral Hygiene

Two conditions can impact your oral health, even though they are preventable. They are gum diseases, also known as periodontal disease, and dental decay, known as caries. Cavities and the progress of the periodontal disease can be kept at bay through preventive care, which includes periodic cleanings by the dentist and daily oral habits such as proper brushing and flossing. During the routine dental cleaning process, the dentist removes plaque accumulated in the teeth over time and tartar, a hardened form of plaque. The plaque accumulation happens due to bacteria that grow in areas where a toothbrush or floss cannot reach. Since the plaque consists of bacteria that lead to gum disease, a periodic cleaning can prevent gum disease from occurring in the patient. Once completed, the dentist will also polish the teeth, which keeps your mouth fresh and clean. Visiting a dentist for regular dental cleaning also allows the dentist to educate the patient about oral hygiene and oral health tips that need to be followed at home. In the initial dental appointment and subsequent visits, the dentist will show how to brush and floss appropriately and describe other oral practices.
