Do you brush your teeth twice a day with a good fluoride toothpaste, floss at least once a day with a high-quality dental floss, and use a good fluoride rinse as part of your daily oral healthcare? If so, congratulations! You are making every effort on your own schedule to protect your smile for years to come.
Did you know there’s more to smile protection than at-home care? That’s right, brushing and flossing do not get rid of stubborn bacteria and tartar. That’s why the American Dental Association recommends professional teeth cleanings at least every six months, and even more often if you’ve recently noticed a change in your gums or your tooth’s enamel from using over-the-counter bleaching products.
The dental hygienist at Meridian Dental Care will utilize only the latest technologies to gently clear away stubborn bacteria and tarter – the two major culprits of periodontal disease, infection, tooth decay, and staining – by working close to your gum line and the tight spaces between your teeth that you are unable to reach at home.
Patients often comment that they find the procedure to be relaxing, non-invasive, and pain-free. And the best part for those of you looking for ways to improve your daily at-home routine? The appointment is a great opportunity to discuss best practices with our hygienist and dental care team. Often, learning to simply adjust the angle of your dental floss can serve as a vast improvement in your at-home dental care.
