dental cleaning

Even in 2018, there are still many people who think a routine dental cleaning is not necessary as long as you still brush and floss. There are many benefits that routine dental cleanings can provide that you cannot get on your own. Getting your teeth cleaned will not only make your teeth look far more appealing, but it will also preserve their structural integrity much longer than just brushing. As your trusted North Texas dentist, here the dental cleaning process from your local Ft. Worth dentist at HomeTown Dental Ridgmar.

Why You Should Get a Regular Dental Cleaning

Plaque Removal

The first step in our dental cleaning process is removing the excess plaque and tartar from your teeth. When plaque is allowed to build up too much, it turns into tartar and significantly increases the rate at which your teeth decay. Preventing this from happening means removing the plaque and smoothing out the surface of your teeth.

 

Teeth Polishing

Next, your dentist will polish your teeth with specialized instruments. Polishing your teeth will help you achieve your ideal smile by adding a bit of brightness to your mouth. Your dentist will place tooth polish on a rubber cap attached to a motorized instrument and gently polish your teeth.

The best way to prevent gingivitis, mouth disease and cavities is to schedule a routine dental cleaning appointment at least every six months. Your dentist is trained to get your teeth cleaner than you can on your own with a toothbrush and floss. At HomeTown dental, we also perform some gum therapy as another preventative measure against mouth disease. Contact your local Ft. Worth dentist at HomeTown Dental today to schedule a dental cleaning.
