Preventive care for your smile
Your mouth is the perfect post for bacteria to find a warm place with plenty of food to eat. As they eat, they create acid that wears down your tooth enamel and leads to cavities. They can also infect your gums, causing swelling, bleeding, and eventually tooth loss. Routine dental cleanings are the best way to prevent decay and gum disease, as well as remove light stains in your teeth and improve bad breath caused by tartar.
An oral hygienist has the tools and education to provide gentle tartar and plaque removal. They will carefully remove debris and calculus deposits from your teeth and gum lines and polish your teeth with an abrasive toothpaste so bacteria cannot stick as easily. They will also thoroughly floss your teeth to remove decaying food and other debris.
Identifying problems as they develop
Dr. Do will perform a full dental exam before every cleaning. He utilizes the latest technology to keep an eye out for problems in your teeth and gums, including an intraoral camera and digital x-rays. He can spot dental caries early in their formation and provide conservative care to protect your teeth or identify the telltale signs of bruxism and custom craft an oral appliance to prevent further damage.
He can also show you spots in your mouth you regularly miss during at-home care and educate you on the best ways to take care of your teeth so you can avoid cavities and infections. If you need advanced care, he can talk you through your options and help you feel comfortable during procedures such as root canals.
Oral hygiene is much more than keeping your smile bright. Bacteria in your mouth can enter your bloodstream and affect your brain and heart health and add a lot of stress to your immune system. Routine dental cleanings can have a significant impact on your overall health and ensure you keep your teeth for years to come.
