Why professional teeth cleanings are needed to maintain oral health and wellness
- Posted on: Apr 15 2019
At Sindledecker Dentistry, patients in and around the community of Boca Raton, FL are encouraged to take the time to work with our team to discuss the benefits of professional teeth cleaning.
Patients are urged to visit the dentist at least every six months to have their smile evaluated. This is important for maintaining oral health and wellness. This is also a great time for patients to have their teeth cleaned by one of our dental hygienists, who can provide thorough removal of plaque and tartar. There are many areas within the smile that some patients may have trouble effectively cleaning, so with the help of our team, patients can ensure their smile is completely cleaned!
In addition to professional teeth cleanings, patients who arrive for their dental examinations will also be educated on how to properly care for their teeth. Our dental hygienists can explain to patients the area of their smile that need more attention and assist them in ensuring they give them the knowledge they require to keep the smile healthy.
Dental examinations are also a time for the dental team to evaluate the smile. Drs. Maxine and Amanda Sindledecker of Sindledecker Dentistry will look in the patient’s mouth to look for the signs of trouble. The most damaging conditions that can impact the smile include tooth decay and periodontal disease. Tooth decay can eat away at the natural tooth enamel and create holes that can become deep and large. When this occurs, an infection may happen, during which treatments such as root canal therapy may need to be considered. Periodontal disease is an infection that can permanently impact the gum tissue, the jaw bone, and the natural teeth. The condition cannot be cured, so protecting the smile from disease is incredibly important.
