The Benefits of Dental Cleanings
Brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash is good dental hygiene habits. However, even thoroughly brushing teeth can miss things. Plaque and tartar build up over time, and your teeth may also become stained by certain food and drinks or tobacco use.
Dental cleanings deal with the gradual effects of daily life, keeping your teeth healthy and protected. Dentists use special tools to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth and gums. Some patients may also be given sealants to protect against cavities, especially children whose teeth are still developing.
Our team has years of dental experience, giving us the skills and expertise to thoroughly and gently clean your teeth to perfection.
Performing a Dental Exam
During your visit, the dentist will perform a dental exam. Apple Dental of San Diego utilizes high-quality film and digital imaging to get a clear picture of your teeth. This allows us to closely monitor your teeth and spot any potential problems. Regular dental exams ensure that any dental health risks are dealt with quickly and effectively, freeing you from the pain and expense of serious dental problems.
Protecting Your Dental Health at Home
Cleanings and exams work best when paired with good dental hygiene habits at home. Brush at least twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste, including your gums and tongue. Make sure to brush every side of all teeth, even hard-to-reach back molars. Use dental floss to clear the spaces between teeth of plaque and food debris, and finish your routine by rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash.
Our dentists believe strongly in the power of patient education. They will take a great time and care to answer any questions and make sure you have the knowledge and tools you need to practice good dental hygiene.
