Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining good oral health. To ensure that potential dental issues are caught early, it is recommended that even those without pressing concerns visit our dental team every six months for a professional dental hygiene teeth cleaning and exam. This regular check-up enables us to evaluate your oral health comprehensively, detect any issues using X-rays, and remove stains, plaque, and tartar from your teeth. Additionally, we offer an oral cancer screening and use an ultrasonic scaler to clean teeth more comfortably than traditional scraping tools. We are also happy to provide advice for your at-home oral care routine. By taking these preventative measures, we can address any problems, such as cavities and gum disease, while they are still minor.
What is Dental Hygiene?
Dental hygiene refers to the practice of maintaining optimal oral health by keeping the teeth, gums, and mouth clean and healthy. It involves regular brushing and flossing, as well as routine visits to the dentist for cleanings and check-ups. Proper dental hygiene is essential for preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. In addition to maintaining good oral health, dental hygiene can also have a positive impact on overall health and well-being. It is an important aspect of maintaining a healthy and happy lifestyle.
What should I expect during my hygiene visit?
When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
