Maintaining healthy teeth requires daily attention, and sometimes you can not get to the hard to reach areas of your mouth. Our Chelmsford dentist or dental hygienist will perform your cleaning from routine teeth cleanings to deep teeth cleaning. This involves removing the tartar that develops in areas difficult to reach with routine daily brushing.
During the cleaning process various instruments are used to perform tooth scaling, tooth polishing and debridement (removal of plaque and calculus that have accumulated on the teeth). These procedures remove hard and soft deposits which prevents gum disease and cavities from occurring.
Daily flossing and brushing help prevent unscheduled visits to the dentist when combined with annual dental exams and dental teeth cleanings every 6 months. A healthy diet is also important for avoiding tarter build-up, cavities and gum disease.
Why regular dental cleanings are important:
- Help prevent bad breath
- Maintain a bright and white smile
- Help prevent Gum Disease
- Detect dental problems early
- Help oral cancer
- Maintain good physical health
