There really is nothing quite like the feeling of walking out of your favorite dental office with freshly cleaned and polished teeth. You can’t stop running your tongue over the crisp smoothness or looking in the rearview mirror at how bright your smile looks. But, like your regular exercise routine or getting enough sleep, keeping up with professional dental hygiene is more than just a feel-good move. It’s vital to your oral and overall health as well! That’s because, no matter how well you clean your teeth at home, you are never able to remove all the bacterial buildup around and between your teeth and under your gumline. If this bacteria continues to build up and harden, it will turn into plaque and tartar, leading to cavities in your teeth and infections in your gums. That’s serious stuff because gum disease has been directly linked to all kinds of issues including, strokes, heart attacks, and cancer. To keep every cleaning ultra-efficient, our hygienists use Cavitron ultrasonic cleaners. These high-tech instruments gently and painlessly blast away bacteria-laden plaque and tartar with sound waves instead of pointed dental tools. It’s so effective and comfortable, you might wish you could schedule a dental hygiene cleaning every week!
