Your Path to a Lasting Healthy Smile at Alta Vista Dental Care

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.

The Necessity of Professional Cleanings

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.

Regular Appointments for Optimal Oral Health

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.

Beyond Brushing: Complete Oral Hygiene

Effective Home Care Practices:

To complement professional cleanings, we recommend:

Twice Daily Brushing

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste.

Regular Flossing

Floss at least once a day to remove plaque and food particles between teeth.

Toothbrush Care

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and replace it every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

Choosing the Right Toothbrush

Both manual and electric toothbrushes can be effective, as stated by the ADA. The key is correct and consistent use.

Personalized Brushing Techniques

Learn from Our Experts: During your cleaning appointment at Alta Vista Dental Care, our dental hygienists can demonstrate effective brushing techniques tailored to your oral health needs. We believe in educating our patients on the best practices for oral hygiene, ensuring you have the tools and knowledge to maintain a healthy smile between visits.
