Ready for Your Teeth Cleaning Appointment?
Teeth cleaning aka dental cleaning is essential to keeping your teeth healthy. If you live in Woodbury and have been procrastinating on getting your teeth cleaned then you may want to call us as soon as possible.
We understand how nervous some patients get about having their routine teeth cleaning. In the back of your mind you’re scared that if you have dental cleaning performed, you may have a cavity or require some type of surgery. Some avoid it all together, just to avoid the dentist all together, right?
The problem with this scenario is that while you wait, if there is a problem, your teeth may be getting worse. Having a deep cleaning could be enough to stop a potentially bad situation without having to worry about major oral surgery.
Deep Teeth Cleaning vs Teeth Whitening
You may think that your teeth are so bad that only a teeth whitening procedure will restore the brilliance of your smile.
The truth is, most patients really only need deep teeth cleaning performed on stained or yellow teeth. While brushing at home is extremely important, patients should still have professional cleanings performed twice annually. This can help remove stubborn plaque. Routine cleanings are also an opportunity for a quick checkup, where any issues can be found early. The earlier we find a small cavity, the more likely we can prevent major problems. Root canals, dental extractions, dental implants, bridges and crowns may be avoided with preventative care.
