Why Professional Teeth Cleaning?

You already know that brushing and flossing are necessary for a healthy and clean smile. At Gentle Smiles of Colorado, we teach our patients how to keep a good oral hygiene routine at home. While a daily oral hygiene routine is critical, it’s equally as important to have your teeth professionally cleaned by your Golden dentist. Keep reading to learn why!

A More Thorough Cleaning

Your Wheat Ridge dentist uses professional tools to provide you with the most thorough cleaning possible. He or she can reach places that everyday brushing and flossing can miss. Using a small mirror as a guide, your Wheat Ridge dentist removes plaque and bacteria from your gum line and in between your teeth with a scaler. This allows us to then perform a deep clean and polish with our special electric toothbrush and gritty toothpaste that is more abrasive than what you use every day. This deep cleaning is finished with flossing to cover areas deep between the teeth, and a flouride rinse to seal your fresh new smile. You won’t get a better teeth cleaning anywhere else!

Complete Tartar Removal

When plaque builds up and hardens, it turns into tartar. Daily brushing and flossing prevents plaque build up, however—if you are not thorough with your at-home hygiene routine, tartar can still form. Once it does, it can only be removed by your dentist. Brushing and flossing on your own cannot completely prevent or remove plaque from building up into tartar. That’s why it’s so important to have a teeth cleaning by your Denver dentist for a complete and thorough removal.

Better for Your Health

During your visit for a teeth cleaning, we also conduct an examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine the overall health of your mouth. During this time, your Denver dentist can identify potential problems that may impact your overall health. For instance—issues with your gums can lead to gingivitis and gum disease, which may cause heart problems, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and more. Having a regular teeth cleaning with your Golden dentist is the best way to stay on top of your oral hygiene and prevent any health concerns that may result from an unhealthy mouth. We will discuss treatment options for any concern we identify—such as dental crowns, fillings, root canals, or veneers.
