Maintaining a Sparkling Smile, Please!

Even if you take care to clean and floss your teeth every day, how would you know if a cavity was developing if you didn’t experience any pain? If you had gum disease, would you know for sure that you need more treatment? Most individuals wouldn’t, which is why it’s crucial to maintain good oral hygiene with regular checkups and cleanings.

Call Urban Smiles Family Dental if you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a while and they aren’t looking their best.

Regular “Deep” Cleaning of Your Teeth Is Necessary.

You take good care of your teeth by brushing twice a day and flossing once. Since you already clean yourself thoroughly every day, what benefits would a regular cleaning provide over your usual regimen?

To begin, the dental hygienist will use a tiny metal instrument to scrape away any hard mineral deposit (tartar) from your teeth. Brushing and flossing alone won’t get the job done. However, this is only the beginning.

The hygienist will next use a mildly abrasive polishing product to thoroughly clean your teeth and eliminate surface stains. Your grin is beginning to light up your face now.

After scraping away plaque, the hygienist will floss your teeth to ensure that all plaque has been gone. This will reduce your risk of developing cavities. And lastly, if cavities and tooth decay are chronic issues for you, the hygienist may administer fluoride to help strengthen your tooth enamel and stave against decay. An average 30-minute cleaning appointment is painless and quick for routine maintenance.

Has It Been That Long?

You still need to get your teeth cleaned professionally by a trained hygienist on a regular basis, even if you believe you take good care of your teeth at home. Contact Urban Smiles Family Dental to schedule a cleaning as soon as possible.

Always keep in mind that the unseen dangers are the most dangerous.
