Dental teeth cleanings and checkups are necessary appointments to have throughout the year. Both of these help maintain the health of the teeth and gums. A teeth cleaning helps keep your smile healthy by providing you with the best dental care possible. Many conditions can be diagnosed quickly during regular checkups and cleanings. Early detection is best when it comes to serious dental problems. Ultimately, poor oral hygiene can have a significant impact on your health.
What to Expect at a Teeth Cleaning in Brooklyn
During your professional teeth cleaning at LuxDen Dental Center, our dental hygienist reviews your health history and determines if there are any medical conditions that can impact your oral health. During a periodontal exam, the gums are evaluated for signs of gum disease by measuring periodontal pockets with a probe. From there, a thorough cleaning of the teeth is performed.
We look for teeth plaque or tartar and remove it with a scaler. Next, we use a paste that dissolves into a fine texture and removes the rest of the plaque from the teeth, cleaning all surfaces of the teeth. We finish a teeth cleaning by teaching and/or reviewing your oral hygiene techniques to ensure you’re flossing and brushing properly.
