Frequent, careful brushing with the right toothpaste helps to remove harmful plaque bacteria from decaying your teeth. Cleanings also help to highlight areas to remove plaque and tartar buildup that can damage your teeth, as well as destroying the healthy look of your mouth. As with all services performed at our office, oral prophylaxis cleanings begin with a thorough review of your medical history, including heart issues, current treatments, pregnancy, diabetes, medications, surgeries, and any other major changes in your health and wellness history.
After your medical review, your dental hygienist will evaluate your gum tissue and x-rays to detect any signs of gum disease. Good cleaning reinforces your at-home oral health regimen, so it’s important to share your daily routine with your dental hygienist so they can establish, right from the start, that your daily routine is helping you make the best progress to maintain a healthy smile.
When you come in for your professional cleaning at Modern American Dentistry, you’ll get the depth of knowledge and experience our skilled dental professionals bring with them every day, a proven approach to connecting the details of your medical history with your oral health, and you’ll also gain the know-how to put that into practice every day for a better smile. You can ask questions including which toothpaste, mouthwash, and whiteners to buy, as well as leave with a list of things to do once you get home to keep your smile healthy and bright.
