The advantages of regular dental cleanings
Dental cleanings are just one aspect of oral health and wellness that helps keep smiles free from periodontal disease and tooth decay. But why are professional dental cleanings and dental exams important? Dr. Omari Sheehy of Bayshore Dental Center in Seffner, Florida, can discuss the benefits of these regular treatments and what to expect during your appointment.
What happens during professional dental cleanings?
Professional dental cleanings involve a thorough examination of the teeth and gums to check for signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues like cavities, plaque buildup, and tartar. The hygienist will use special tools to remove any built-up plaque and tartar from the teeth and around the gums. During this process, the hygienist may also apply fluoride treatments to help protect your teeth against future decay. Finally, Dr. Sheehy will come into the room to examine all areas of your mouth, including your tongue and throat, to identify potential problems that need immediate attention. Afterward, he will advise on how to improve your home dental care routine and offer suggestions for maintaining good oral health.
Why are routine dental exams important?
Routine dental exams help to keep your teeth and gums healthy by detecting any early signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues. Regular check-ups also allow Dr. Sheehy to monitor the progress of existing treatments, address any new concerns that may have arisen since your last visit, and provide advice on how you can upgrade your home care routine for better oral health. By getting a professional cleaning every six months, you can make sure your teeth stay strong and healthy in the long run.
