Thorough Cleanings and Dental Exams
A full-service dental cleaning is a standard part of good dental care. Professional cleanings eliminate tartar buildup often found along the gum line and other hard-to-reach places. This is a key defense against common dental health issues, such as periodontal disease. Cleanings also help to remove surface stains from the teeth with a gentle polish, leaving your mouth feeling refreshed.
After your cleaning, Dr. Marjan will perform an exam. This involves both a visual examination of your teeth and dental x-rays. Our office uses an intraoral camera, a modern dental device the size of a pen, to get a clear picture of your teeth and gums from many angles, allowing us to detect and treat any potential issues with precision.
Good Oral Hygiene at Home
Between regular checkups, you can protect your teeth at home by developing good dental hygiene habits. Gently brushing your teeth and gums twice a day, along with daily flossing, will help to eliminate bacteria and plaque, as well as food particles that attract them. Using a fluoride toothpaste and rinsing with mouthwash further defends your teeth from harmful bacteria.
We also advise limiting sugary or acidic foods from your diet. Sugary foods encourage bacterial growth, and frequent acid exposure can damage tooth enamel. You must also be careful not to brush too hard, as this irritates the gums and can even wear down your enamel.
