The Importance of Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings are an essential part of having a healthy smile. Avoiding them can lead to common dental problems, including gum disease, stained teeth, and cavities. Plaque is the soft, sticky, bacteria that starts to form on the teeth over time. Teeth are bathed in saliva and need the saliva to flush bacteria from the mouth. At Jenson Dental, our dental cleanings are designed to leave your teeth clean, smooth, and free of plaque.
Benefits of Dental Cleanings
Although brushing and flossing at home is essential, having professional dental cleanings will ensure teeth are healthy and thoroughly clean. Here are just a few benefits of professional dental cleanings:
Because most of the stains that dull your teeth are removed, you’ll be left with a brighter and whiter smile.
Dental cleanings can prevent gum disease which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
We can detect early stages of oral cancer.
By taking advantage of regular dental cleanings, you’ll most likely save money on expensive dental procedures in the long run.
We can detect early signs of broken fillings, fractures, and cavities.
What to Expect
During your dental cleanings, our dental hygienist will use a scaler to gently scrape off plaque and tartar above your and below your gum line. Our tools are designed to remove the deposits around the teeth without damaging the teeth. We offer nitrous oxide for patients struggling with anxiety. Our goal is to make each one of our patients feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed during their dental cleanings.
Examining Your Teeth
After the teeth are cleaned, we will then polish and floss the teeth. Dr. Jenson will examine the teeth and gums to look for problems related to gum recession, gum disease, and tooth decay. We also provide fluoride treatments to strengthen the enamel of the teeth. We recommend younger patients receiving regular fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect the teeth.
