Everyone should have their teeth cleaned about twice a year in order to help further prevent cavities and gum disease, but sometimes specific dental cleanings are required in order to treat the latter. Dental cleanings are recommended for everyone, but periodontal cleaning as maybe necessary if you have gum disease or even more serious forms of periodontal disease. No matter what you need, our dental experts here at our Willoughby dental office, Abriani Smiles, can easily provide you with either kind of dental treatment.
Even if you take good care of your dental health and hygiene, it's important for you to see your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning. Routine dental cleanings are absolutely essential in order to help eliminate hard to reach and hard to clean plaque and bacteria. It's still important for you to brush your teeth between meals, to floss, and to rinse your mouth regularly, especially since it can significantly help cut down on every day bacteria in your mouth. It's still important for you to see a dentist though, and routine teeth cleanings can also provide your dentist with additional opportunities to look out for dental problems. If you have gum disease, dental cleanings are often recommended, but more severe forms of gum disease may require periodontal cleanings instead. Here at our Willoughby dental office, Abriani Smiles, we can easily identify the stages of gum disease if it is present and provide you with periodontal cleanings. Periodontal cleanings are generally more intensive than routine dental cleanings and can help to illuminate plaque buildup and improve your health.
Whether you're overdue for a dental cleaning or if you believe you have gum disease, our experts here at our Willoughby dental office can provide you with the care that you need. Call us today and book an appointment with us here at Abriani Smiles.
