At Alta Vista Dental Care, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy smile, and professional dental cleanings are a critical component of this. While regular brushing and flossing at home are essential, they cannot replace the thorough cleaning provided by our dental professionals.
Combating Plaque and Preventing Gum Disease: Professional cleanings are the only way to effectively remove plaque buildup, which is a leading cause of gum disease. Our experienced dental hygienists use specialized tools and techniques to gently yet effectively clean areas that regular brushing can’t reach, ensuring the health and longevity of your teeth and gums.
Following ADA Recommendations: The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests dental cleanings every six months. However, for those prone to gingivitis, or for patients with dental implants, more frequent cleanings – every three to four months – are advised to prevent infections and maintain optimal oral health. These regular cleanings are not just about plaque removal; they include a comprehensive oral examination to check for cavities, signs of decay, and even screen for oral cancers.
Effective Home Care Practices:
To complement professional cleanings, we recommend:
