Regular teeth cleanings from your dentist in Lynwood, WA, can save your smile
Did you know that brushing and flossing alone aren’t enough to save your smile? Regular brushing and flossing are indeed vital to maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile, but you also need to see your dentist and dental hygienist regularly to help you maintain your perfect smile. Regular teeth cleanings are an important part of taking great care of your smile.
Dr. Mark Janczakowski at Dental Care Design in Lynwood, WA, offers a wide range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services, including professional dental cleanings to save your smile.
Regular professional dental cleanings provide an extra layer of protection against gum and periodontal disease. That’s because your dental care provider is highly skilled at removing hard and soft deposits and bacteria that can cause disease.
During your professional dental cleaning appointment, your dental care provider will:
- Examine your gums and look for signs of disease, including monitoring any areas of bleeding, abnormal tissue, or deep pockets around your teeth.
- Check your x-rays for evidence of disease including bone loss around your teeth.
- Remove hard deposits, known as calculus or tartar, using hand and ultrasonic instruments.
- Remove soft deposits, known as plaque, and stains, using a handpiece to polish your teeth to a brilliant shine.
One of the most important parts of your regular dental cleaning appointment is learning all of the latest tools, tricks, and techniques to practice great oral care at home, between appointments. It’s also an excellent opportunity to ask any questions you have about dental issues and services.
