Keeping Smiles Bright and Healthy
You know that good oral hygiene and regular check-ups keep your teeth and gums healthy. But dental cleanings can also improve and protect your overall health as well.
Why Does a Healthy Mouth Matter so Much?
Recent studies have linked a variety of oral health issues to whole-body health issues. For example, periodontal disease has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease and strokes. If cavities are left uncared for they can cause abscesses, infections and loss of jawbone.
Regular cleanings and yearly x-rays give us the opportunity to keep an eye on your overall dental health, monitor the condition of your teeth and gums, and allow us to identify any problems while they are small and easy to repair.
How We Clean Your Teeth
We use a variety of comfortable and highly effective tools to assist us in your dental cleaning. One of our most powerful tools is the ultrasonic scaler, which uses high frequency sound waves (instead of metal scrapers and hand scalers) to clean teeth. This method is not only amazingly gentle but has also been proven effective in removing tartar from both above and below the gum line. We use these ultrasonic scalers both for regular cleanings and for more advanced periodontal care.
