Cleanings and Oral Hygiene

Properly brushing and flossing every day is necessary for a healthy smile, but it is not a substitute for professional cleanings. Only professional cleanings by your dentist or dental hygienist can remove plaque buildup that leads to gum disease. The most effective way to ensure the health of your teeth and gums is to come in for your routine cleanings

Making A Healthy Smile

A cleaning is a simple treatment that preserves your oral health and prevents potential damage from bacteria. The American Dental Association recommends coming in for a dental cleaning every 6 months. However, patients who are more prone to gingivitis are recommended to come in more often, every three to four months, to prevent or maintain infections. This is also recommended for patients with dental implants. A cleaning is not just for the purpose of removing build up and plaque. During your appointment your dentist will also do a full oral examination to check for signs of cavities and more serious dental issues, even oral cancers.

Brushing and Cleaning Effectively

Patients should brush their teeth at minimum twice a day for two minutes with fluoride toothpaste. It is also recommended that you floss at least once every day. Your toothbrush should have soft bristles and be replaced every three to four months, or more frequently if your toothbrush is visibly damaged or the bristles are fraying. The American Dental Association states that both manual and electric toothbrushes can be effective.
There are a number of methods for effective brushing. Our dental hygienist or doctor can show you these techniques at your next appointment.

Embrace Radiance: The Journey to a Cleaner, Healthier Smile

A captivating smile is more than just beautiful teeth; it’s the emblem of good health and dedicated care. While regular brushing and flossing lay the groundwork, professional dental cleanings elevate oral hygiene to its zenith. At Premier Dental of El Dorado Hills, we combine gentle techniques, specialized tools, and the meticulous expertise of Dr. Zachary Rodriguez to ensure your smile remains vibrant and free from lurking dental adversaries.

The Essentiality of Dental Cleanings

Over time, our teeth become home to plaque and tartar – culprits behind gum disease, cavities, and other dental woes. Dental cleanings delve deeper than daily oral care routines, targeting hard-to-reach areas and stubborn deposits to ensure optimal dental health.

Indicators It’s Time for a Cleaning:

  • Stained Teeth: Noticeable discolorations from coffee, tea, or tobacco etc.
  • Bad Breath: Persistent, even after regular brushing or mouthwash use.
  • Bleeding Gums: Especially while brushing or flossing.
  • Tartar Build-Up: Hardened deposits near the gum line or between the teeth.

The Premier Dental Cleaning Experience:

  1. Thorough Examination: Dr. Rodriguez initiates the process with a comprehensive dental exam, using advanced tools to identify any areas of concern.

  2. Scaling: With precision tools, we gently remove plaque and tartar deposits from above and below the gum line.

  3. Polishing: Using a specialized paste, we polish the teeth to remove surface stains and create a smoother surface, making it harder for plaque to adhere.

  4. Fluoride Treatment: An optional step to strengthen enamel and combat potential decay.

  5. Guided Home Care Tips: Personalized advice on brushing, flossing, and dietary habits to maintain optimal oral health between visits.
