We all learn – from the moment that our little baby teeth make an appearance – that maintaining proper oral health begins with a consistent routine at home. But, as meticulous as we think we often are, brushing and flossing alone does not always get into all of those hard-to-reach places. For this reason, it is essential to have professional cleanings every six months, or more frequently depending on your need.
The technical term for these visits is referred to as ‘Dental Prophylaxis’, which involves the cleaning of your teeth by a Certified Dental Assistant or Hygienist using particular instruments to remove plaque, calculus (tartar), and stains, as a preventive measure for the control of gingivitis. During your teeth cleaning your dentist will also perform an exam of the entire mouth to ensure that all is as it should be, leaving you with a mouth feeling fresh and squeaky clean!
