Professional teeth cleanings play a significant role in your oral health by lowering your risks for specific complications like:
- Tooth cavities
- Dental infections
- Periodontal disease
Professional teeth cleanings rid your teeth and gums of the bacteria, tartar, and debris that cause the above conditions. And your toothbrush and floss alone are not enough.
Professional teeth cleanings in Scottsdale, however, are only part of a multi-pronged approach to excellent oral health. It is also essential to visit your dentist at least twice per year for dental exams and periodic x-ray.
These dental checkups help your dentist spot potential or emerging oral health problems before they threaten your teeth. For example, it is better to treat a small cavity than a larger one that may weaken the structure of your tooth. It is also better to catch periodontal disease in the gingivitis stage. In this stage, it is reversible as opposed to treatable.
Your dentist and hygienist in Scottsdale will customize your checkups and teeth cleanings based on your needs. Typically, this means visiting us every six months for preventive services like exams and teeth cleanings.
