Your oral health is vital to your overall wellbeing, which is why dental cleaning is so important. Even though you probably brush your teeth twice daily and floss every day, it is still important for you to come to our office for a cleaning every six months.
At Eastpoint Dental, we always put the needs of our patients ahead of our own and strive to prevent problems before they start. We will not only clean your teeth but also help you minimize your chances of developing cavities by helping you keep your teeth clean at home.
Dental Cleaning at Eastpoint Dental
For most patients, receiving a comfortable cleaning in our office every six months helps you keep your mouth clean from plaque and tartar. Our hygienists average over 25 years of experience.
They will use both traditional hand instruments and advanced water jets to blast these build-ups off your teeth before cavities have a chance to begin. No matter how well you brush and floss at home, it cannot prevent all plaque and tartar from developing. That is why you need to come to our office regularly for your cleanings.
Our team will also take the time to review your home care routine with you and provide feedback or techniques you can implement immediately.
The Top Tips for Dental Cleaning at Home
Eastpoint Dental encourages you to keep on top of your oral health at home. Some of the most important tips you need to follow include:
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily — once in the morning and once at night. Focus on every surface of your teeth, and clean around the gum line.
- You should floss your teeth once per day. Remember to move the floss in between each pair of teeth twice. You should go down each tooth to remove any debris that might be present.
- If you have dental appliances, such as braces, you may need to use a Waterpik or special dental floss to get underneath the wires and brackets. If you have a retainer, we encourage you to clean it regularly.
We can help you choose the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss for the best results.
