Are you looking for a way to boost your oral health and preserve your smile’s natural beauty? There’s no better means than professional teeth cleaning! A professional dental cleaning cleanses your mouth of plaque and tartar buildup – a primary cause of decay and gum disease. Plaque removal on a regular basis can give you stronger, healthier teeth over the long haul. If you live in Orlando, Florida, or a nearby community, contact John E. Russo, D.M.D., to schedule a dental checkup and professional teeth cleaning.
Although home dental care is essential to good oral health, brushing and flossing alone isn’t enough to keep your teeth and gums plaque-free. There are too many nooks and crannies where your toothbrush can’t reach. These areas are prone to plaque buildup. Over time, plaque can solidify into calculus or tartar, which your dentist can only remove using specialized dental tools. That’s where professional teeth cleaning comes in. Routine checkups and cleanings by your Orlando, Florida, dentist augment your oral hygiene routine to keep your teeth fresh and clean.
During a routine checkup, Dr. Russo will examine your mouth, gums, and teeth for signs of irregularities. We’ll take x-rays to check your oral health under the gumline, where bacteria can breed. Regular checkups allow us to detect problems early so they can be taken care of right away. This protects you from having to endure long, costly treatments later down the line.
A professional cleaning entails scaling your teeth to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup. We’ll focus on hard-to-reach areas to ensure your mouth gets completely clean. Once your teeth and gums are clean, we’ll floss and polish them to leave them smooth and shiny. Complete plaque removal is one of the major reasons to have your teeth professionally cleaned, as plaque buildup is one of the major causes of cavities and gum disease.
We recommend bi-annual dental exams and cleanings so we can keep track of your oral health. Regular dental cleanings help prevent problems with your gums and teeth, or at least keep them to a minimum. Your teeth always look and feel their best after a dental cleaning.
Here’s what we hope to achieve through professional teeth cleanings:
Professional teeth cleanings can help keep you smiling for years, as your teeth will be stronger, healthier, and brighter. To schedule a dental exam and cleaning at our Orlando, FL clinic, contact Dr. John Russo at (407) 470-1224.
