The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings
By Eugene D. Stanislaus on April 29, 2014
There are plenty of ways that a dental health professional can help you get the best looking and healthiest smile possible. When you visit our practice, we will be sure to consider both dental aesthetics as well as total wellness. A restorative and cosmetic dentist should be committed to patients and provide great dental health services, allowing patients to smile with absolute confidence. With this in mind, no treatments should be taken for granted, whether they are major reconstructive or restorative procedures or even basic services.
Right now, we want to look at why routine dental cleanings are so important. That's right. Those cleaning sessions you receive at every checkup are crucial for maintaining and improving your dental health.
Prevention Is Always the Best Policy
When it comes to having a smile that's healthy and beautiful, avoiding or preventing problems is always preferable to more invasive treatments. Routine dental cleanings are an essential part to preventative care. Your dentist is able to reach all the hard-to-reach places in your mouth and ensure food particles, plaque, and tartar are all carefully removed.
Routine Cleanings Allow for Deeper Cleaning
With routine cleanings, your dentist is able to address matters that brushing and flossing at home cannot address. This includes any plaque buildup or tartar buildup along the gumline. Removing these harmful substances can sometimes require careful scraping with special tools. By doing this, tooth decay and gum disease can be prevented, which means lasting wellness for the patient.
Essentially, prevention through professional cleaning helps avoid the need for advanced restorative dentistry care, which restores the overall health of your mouth after a problem has occurred.
Professional Care Means a Mix of Diagnostics and Overall Enhancement
In addition to the routine cleaning, your dentist will also be able to monitor your teeth and gums for any serious issues. These diagnostic services are also crucial for ensuring total dental wellness and a smile that looks its absolute best for years and years down the road.
If we notice a problem during your dental visit, we will take the necessary steps to ensure that it is addressed as soon as possible. Sometimes these issues can be addressed during the same day as the checkup. In addition to this, we will also provide information to patients so that they know what they can do at home to prevent these issues from happening again, enhancing their overall health and wellness and empowering them to make smart choices with regard to dental wellness.
A Commitment to Comprehensive Health and Wellness
Dr. Eugene Stanislaus, Dr. Lisa Reid, and the entire team at our practice believe that all patients should receive exceptional dental care and ought to have healthy smiles that last for years and years to come. This is why we offer comprehensive dental care services and why we work closely with every patient who stops by, no matter their needs and concerns.
