One might think that brushing and flossing is enough to keep your teeth and gums healthy, but careful at-home cleaning is only part of a proper dental hygiene routine. At minimum, biannual professional cleanings are essential for preventing painful, potentially harmful, and costly health issues, including tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancer. By working together, you and our team at Doncaster Dental Studio can create healthy habits and maintain a lifetime of optimal oral health.
Deep Cleanings For a Sparkling, Healthy Smile
Home care is one of the most effective steps in maintaining a healthy smile. But even the most diligent person is unable to remove all of the plaque and tartar that builds up over time. If that buildup is left for too long, it can erode your enamel and lead to cavities and tooth loss. Tartar can also get under your gum line and cause gingivitis. Skilled hygienists can remove the buildup that you are unable to reach, and will leave your teeth feeling fresh, smooth, and polished.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Your dentist will perform a quick and simple oral cancer screening during your preventative visits. They will check your entire oral cavity for potentially suspicious tissue. If your dentist finds anything abnormal, they will perform a painless brush test that collects cells for analysis. Identifying oral cancer in its early stages can significantly increase your chances of a quick recovery.
Better Home Care
During your visit, your hygienist will ensure that you are using the correct tools while caring for your teeth at home. Occasionally, the standard toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss is not enough to fit your unique needs. You may need a specialty toothbrush, toothpaste, rinse, or flossing aid. Your hygienist or dentist will also observe if you are brushing and flossing correctly, or there are some trouble spots that require more attention. With the proper tools and methods to keep your teeth clean at home, your office visits will be quicker and less stressful.
