Preventive Dental Care

Good oral hygiene involves a combination of proper at-home dental care and regular dental cleanings, which often includes professional dental cleaning and an oral exam.

Even with regular brushing and flossing, it is not possible to remove all the plaque in your mouth. This plaque forms tartar, which then builds up and increases the risk of gum infections and tooth decay. If no remedial action is taken in a timely manner, your deteriorating oral health may aggravate other health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, leading to costly treatments to regain your health.

As such, you should consider regular professional cleaning to:

Remove plaque and tartar and prevent cavities and gum disease

Tartar that forms on your tooth enamel may begin to wear away the enamel resulting in cavities that can be expensive to treat. The buildup of plaque in your mouth may also cause gum disease and periodontal disease, which are associated with bleeding gums and loose teeth.

Remove tooth stains

The regular consumption of certain foods and drinks may cause your teeth to gradually discolor, affecting the whiteness of your smile. Coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco are known to stain your teeth. Regular dental cleaning prevents the buildup of these stains, making it easier to maintain your pearly white smile.

Prevent bad breath

A combination of poor at-home dental care and bad lifestyle habits like smoking or chewing tobacco can adversely affect the health of your mouth. Poor brushing and flossing can allow food debris to remain stuck between your teeth for too long, causing bad breath. Tobacco, on the other hand, may reduce saliva production, reducing the ability of your mouth to “self-clean” after eating and drinking. Thorough dental cleaning can help prevent halitosis and keep your mouth clean and fresh

Besides cleaning your teeth, Dr. Kamini Patel will also examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of problems, while checking for any indicators of chronic inflammatory diseases like diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease for early intervention.
