Because you routinely come in for dental cleanings and exams, it can be easy to forget why these visits are so important if your teeth are in great shape. But for keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong, it’s vital to see us regularly and not just take good oral health for granted!
A healthy beautiful smile starts in the home and with those biannual cleanings. Along with your daily brushing and flossing routine to remove harmful plaque, those professional dental cleanings are the only way to remove tartar buildup (made from hardened plaque) that can otherwise lead to cavities and gum disease.
Fact: The leading cause of tooth loss is periodontal disease. Catching it early means it can often be reversed though lost gum tissue doesn’t regenerate.
When you come in for your cleanings, you can look forward to the following:
Our dental skilled dental hygienists will use special tools to floss and polish your pearly whites after removing tartar buildup around the teeth and gum line to prevent tooth enamel loss, allowing tooth decay and gum disease to gain a foothold.
Our experienced prosthodontists will give your smile a comprehensive exam to see if there are any developing problems while they are still in their early stages and least invasive to treat. Dental X-rays are also taken yearly to detect problems that can’t be seen with the eye alone.
If it is time for your next dental checkup, be sure to come in to stay on top of your oral health game. If you haven’t scheduled a cleaning lately, it’s time to make sure that happens. You can call 303-586-1019 or schedule your appointment with our prosthodontists in Broomfield, Colorado, online. Our Denver Restorative Dentistry team, led by Dr. Taylor Goggins, Dr. Brian Aguirre and Dr. Anna Pitz can make your dental cleaning comfortable and your teeth shine!
