There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it: a healthy smile means the world to you. However, a great smile isn’t the result of a one-day job — maintaining your teeth and gums is an ongoing job that never stops as long as you breathe!
At Asuncion Dental Group, we usually say that a healthy smile is a result of two things: what you do at home and what we do in our dental office. You do much of the work at home — brushing, flossing, mouth rinsing, and eating healthy foods. On our part, we professionally clean your teeth every six months. Both at-home oral care and dental appointments are important cogs of your dental care, and none is a substitute for the other.
Dreading a dental cleaning? You don’t have to. A typical dental cleaning is a straightforward and painless procedure that takes about one hour at most. Here is what a typical dental cleaning looks like:
Before letting you go, our dentist talks with you about areas of concern in your oral health and offers tips on harnessing the power of your at-home oral care routine.
A dental cleaning (prophy) eliminates accumulated tartar on your teeth and gums, keeping you free from gum disease. You see, when cleaning your teeth at home, your brush, floss, and other over-the-counter cleaning materials can’t reach all the crevices and spaces of your mouth. However, dentists have special tools to access hard-to-reach areas that become breeding grounds for gum disease-causing bacteria.
Besides, getting regular teeth cleaning in Fredrick, Maryland, prevents you from spending time and resources on more invasive dental treatments like fillings, root canals, and dental crowns.
