Why are regular teeth cleanings so important?

Routine teeth cleanings are critical for maintaining good oral health. Beyond the direct benefits of keeping plaque and tartar deposits from accumulating on the teeth, regular cleaning appointments make it easier to identify potential trouble spots before they become painful or require significant restoration.

We use the latest tools to give your teeth the most in-depth cleaning possible and, unlike the scraping and picking many patients are used to, today’s procedures are extremely comfortable. Ultrasonic scalers eliminate deposits from the teeth using undetectable ultrasonic vibrations. A cleaning appointment at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne will the easiest you’ve ever experienced.

At the end of your appointment, the hygienist will spray your teeth with a special mixture of water and baking soda. This helps to remove any leftover plaque and polishes the teeth, leaving them smooth and shiny. The baking soda also neutralizes acidic conditions in the mouth which can do harm to enamel.
