Practicing good oral hygiene and scheduling regular checkups for a teeth cleaning are both important preventative maintenance steps you can take for your oral health. At Paradise Dental, our experienced dentists and staff can help keep your smile bright and healthy!
It’s important to remember that even with diligent brushing and flossing, a thin film of plaque can still accumulate on your teeth and gums. Left untreated, it can cause everything from cavities to gingivitis. That’s why the American Dental Association recommends that you have your teeth cleaned and examined at least once every six months.
What is the Dental Cleaning Process?
During your regular dental cleaning, Paradise Dental’s professionally trained staff will start by carefully examining everything from your teeth to your tongue for any evidence of decay, teeth grinding or other potential tooth disorders. We will then clean your teeth by removing any plaque that may have accumulated since your last visit, and finish by polishing your teeth. Bitewing X-rays are also periodically taken during yearly check-ups. X-rays enable us to detect any decay that may be developing between your teeth as well as possible signs of tumors, cysts and bone loss which normally would not be evident.
How Can I Prevent Plaque Buildup in Between Cleanings?
Below are a few ways you can prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities:
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a soft or medium-bristled toothbrush. Brush gently in a circular motion. Use fluoride free toothpaste to remove food particles and plaque from the tooth surfaces. Also be sure to brush the top surface of your tongue; this will remove any extra plaque-causing food particles, foul-smelling bacteria, and help keep your breath fresh!
- Clean between your teeth by flossing at least once a day. Decay-causing bacteria can linger between teeth where toothbrush bristles can’t reach.
- Tongue scrapers are one more step toward optimal oral health as it removes bad smelling bacteria and bacteria that causes periodontitis.
