Dental health is often overlooked by many individuals, yet it is an essential aspect of overall health. Putting off routine care can lead to a variety of issues such as cavities, gum disease and even tooth loss. One of the best ways to maintain good dental health is through regular dental cleanings and exams here at NewStar Dental.
WHAT IS A DENTAL CLEANING?
A dental cleaning, also known as a prophylaxis, is a professional procedure performed by a dental hygienist to remove plaque, tartar and stains from your teeth. It involves assessing your oral health, scaling to remove plaque and tartar, polishing to remove surface stains and flossing to clean between teeth. Regular dental cleanings are recommended every six months to maintain optimal oral health, prevent tooth decay and gum disease, and promote a fresher breath and brighter smile.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL CLEANINGS
- Improved oral health: Dental cleanings help maintain optimal oral health by removing plaque and tartar, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
- Preventive care: Regular cleanings help identify and address dental issues at an early stage, preventing them from progressing into more severe problems.
- Fresher breath: Cleanings remove plaque and bacteria that contribute to bad breath, leaving you with a fresher and more pleasant breath.
- Long-term cost savings: Routine dental cleanings can help prevent costly dental procedures in the future by maintaining good oral health and catching problems early.
- Overall well-being: Oral health is closely linked to overall health. Regular cleanings can contribute to better overall well-being by reducing the risk of oral infections and inflammation that can impact systemic health.
- Peace of mind: Dental cleanings provide peace of mind, knowing that your teeth and gums are in good hands and any potential issues are being addressed proactively.
WHAT IS A DENTAL CHECKUP?
A dental checkup is a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and mouth. During a dental checkup, our dentist will look for any signs of dental problems and may take X-rays to get a closer look at your teeth and jawbone. We may also check for signs of oral cancer as part of your examination.
BENEFITS OF DENTAL CHECKUP
- Early problem detection: Regular dental checkups enable early detection of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease or infections. Catching these problems early allows for timely intervention and prevents further complications.
- Oral cancer screening: Our dentist can conduct oral cancer screenings during checkups, facilitating early detection and improving treatment outcomes.
- Personalized oral hygiene guidance: We offer tailored advice on oral hygiene techniques, including proper brushing and flossing, and recommend oral care products suitable for individual needs.
- Addressing dental concerns: Dental checkups provide an opportunity to discuss any dental discomfort or concerns, allowing us to examine the issue, provide a diagnosis and propose suitable treatment options.
- Monitoring dental restorations: Checkups help us assess the condition of dental restorations like fillings or crowns, ensuring they are functioning well and identifying any signs of wear or damage.
- Overall health assessment: Dr. Denys Severchenko may detect signs of systemic health conditions during checkups, as oral health is connected to overall health. This can lead to early identification of conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.
