Compassionate Family Dentists Serving Morris & Somerset County
At Dental Associates of Basking Ridge, we believe it is critical to maintaining a healthy regiment of professional teeth cleanings every six months. While brushing your teeth at least twice daily is important, scheduling professional teeth cleaning twice a year is important to tooth and gum health. Our team of dental professionals will not only provide you with a thorough deep clean but will also be able to take this opportunity to identify any other issues that may arise. Scheduling a bi-annual professional teeth cleaning should be a priority, as oral health is just as important as the rest of your health. Dental Associates of Basking Ridge offers a wide variety of services, from a routine deep clean to complete restorative or cosmetic dentistry. If you need a trusted and experienced dental professional, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
What to Expect
When you come to our office for your scheduled cleaning, one of our experienced dental hygienists will assist your dentist in removing any plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth with a scaling instrument. Another term for professional cleaning treatment is a dental prophylaxis. It is critical that this build up is removed regularly to help prevent gum disease, gingivitis, and bad breath. If there are any cavities found during the examination, these can be resolved as well. During a professional deep clean, your dentist will also perform a full dental examination to look for signs of gum disease or other issues. Additionally, they may take x-rays that can diagnose any problems that may not be visible from a regular mouth examination, such as impacted teeth, tooth decay, abscesses, and more.
What are the Benefits of Teeth Cleaning?
When you schedule an appointment to have your teeth professionally cleaned at Dental Associates of Basking Ridge, you will be able to reap a number of benefits. Having your teeth deep cleaned by a professional can allow you to stop the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Some of the other benefits that you can expect from professional teeth cleaning include the following:
- Removal of plaque and tartar: When there is a buildup of plaque and tartar on or below your gum line, you may face significant oral health issues. Even if you have excellent oral health habits at home, such as regular brushing and flossing, you may still not be able to get rid of all the buildup without the help of a professional.
- Fresh breath: One of the ways you can tell that periodontal disease is advancing is by consistent bad breath, which is also referred to as halitosis. The regular removal of tartar and plaque by a dental professional can reduce gum infections and bad breath.
