The Importance of Excellent Dental Hygiene
Sometimes you need to do a little more than brush and floss to maintain excellent dental hygiene. Over time you may neglect pits or areas of your mouth that are difficult to reach. This could be due to your brushing technique or sensitivities prevent you from cleaning your teeth properly.
If you have indulged in sweets and acidic beverages it is especially important to brush regularly. There are times when the buildup of bacteria and muck is so great that you will require the finesse of one our dental hygienists to rectify.
At Greenvale Dentistry we provide a scale and clean service that:
- Removes plaque and tartar
- Prevents bacteria from sticking to teeth
- Fights against gum disease
- Improves home care (easier to keep teeth clean)
- Encourages satisfactory oral hygiene habits
Our dentists and dental hygienists use ultrasonic instruments to knock the debris off your teeth with vibrations while spraying mist to wash away excess gunk. We can adjust intensity and water temperature for those concerned about sensitive gums, nerves and teeth. If you are concerned about tooth sensitivities on the day simply let us know. We want you to be as comfortable as possible during these procedures.
The next phase of a scale and clean involves the use of fine, curved hand tools for precision. Have you tried flossing away a bit of plaque lately? We use purpose-built instruments to clean every dental surface and crevice. To finish the job we polish and offer a fluoride treatment.
Greenvale Dentistry patients also receive a home care plan to make their fresh smile last. After all, we want you to have the best possible treatment outcome.
