Professional Cleanings in Merritt Island
Did you know that even the most diligent brushers and flossers need regular professional cleanings?
If you’ve ever had a professional cleaning you’ll know just how fresh and clean your mouth feels afterward but a professional clean is about more than having a brighter smile.
Professional cleanings are the key to great oral health
Just you would hire a financial advisor to make sure your financial health is taken care of, visiting Your Family Dental here in Merritt Island regularly will make sure your oral health is taken care of.
Reaching the places you can’t
Our dentists have the tools and expertise to get into every nook and cranny that you can’t, no matter how expensive your electric toothbrush is.
And in those hard-to-reach places, sticky plaque and hard tartar can build up which need specialist tools to remove.
If the deposits aren’t removed regularly they can provide a cozy home for bacteria to multiply which can lead to more serious oral health problems.
Professional cleanings stop problems before they start
Bacteria in the mouth can cause tooth decay and gum disease and if left untreated can lead to infection and inflammation.
During professional cleaning visits your Merritt Island dental hygienist will examine your mouth for signs of disease, decay, and oral cancer so attending regularly can identify problems at the earliest stage.
What happens at a professional cleaning appointment?
If it’s the first time you’ve had a professional clean you might find the sensations strange. First, your hygienist will use a variety of tools to break down plaque and remove tartar from your teeth and gum lines.
Next, they’ll polish your teeth to make them smooth and shiny.
Finally, you’ll be given personalized advice on taking care of your teeth between visits to treat any issues the hygienist has discovered to maintain the results.
You can’t beat a professional clean for a healthy mouth and a clean, fresh smile. Schedule your regular professional cleaning at Your Family Dental today to protect your oral health so you can smile with confidence for a long time to come.
