It doesn’t matter if you’re young, old or in between – routine dental check-ups and professional teeth cleaning are of paramount importance to not only your oral health, but your overall health as well since untreated infection and gum disease can lead to heart disease, cancer, and more.
Gone are the days when one can use the excuse of “being too busy” to schedule an exam or cleaning. Brooklin Village Dental Care has convenient Saturday and evening appointments available to accommodate even the busiest of schedules.
First, the dentist will examine your teeth and gums, as well as your mouth cavity looking for lesions, rough spots, or other issues that could lead to cancer. The dentist may want to take x-rays or use a light scan for preventative screening.
After the dentist examines your teeth and oral cavity, then the oral hygienist will start the cleaning process. This process starts with removing any plaque or tartar that is present on the teeth. Next, the hygienist will use a specially formulate professional grade toothpaste and a high-powered electric toothbrush to clean your teeth.
The hygienist will then expertly floss your teeth to make sure all the plague/tartar has been removed from your teeth and gum lines. You’ll also be given pointers on how you can floss your teeth at home using a correct flossing pattern.
And last, a fluoride treatment will be given to you that will last about 2 to 3 months.
This professional cleaning/polishing should be done twice a year with your dentist at Brooklin Village Dental Care.
If you want to keep that fresh, clean feeling well after you’ve left our office, your hygienist or dentist can recommend a toothbrush that will work best for you. Also, continue to floss daily with the correct flossing pattern and don’t forget to use a mouthwash that helps control tartar or the one that your dentist recommended.
There’s no better time than now to make an appointment for a dental checkup and teeth cleaning with the caring, professional staff at Brooklin Village Dental Care.
