Dental Cleanings An Overview
The American Dental Association recommends that patients have their teeth professionally cleaned at least two times each year.
Six-month dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup from hard to reach surfaces of the teeth helping to prevent tooth decay, infection and gum disease. Patients who visit the dentist at least twice a year are less likely to require advanced restorative dentistry and are more likely to preserve their natural, healthy smile.
Professional dental cleanings help to deter:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
Dental cleanings also provide our dental care team with the opportunity to closely evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums. Routine visits to Dr. Robinson’s office offer the opportunity to diagnose developing dental concerns early on so that conservative treatment can be more effective.
Dental cleanings are a practical deterrent for the development of gum disease. A growing oral epidemic, gum disease can affect anyone at any age. Gum disease has been linked to an increase in inflammation, cardiovascular disease, tooth loss, bone loss, and heart attacks. Professional cleanings are a recommended preventive measure for stopping the incidence of gum disease. When caught in the earliest stage, gum disease can often be eradicated through a combination of dental cleanings and specific home care routines that we will customize for you. Catching gum disease while it is still reversible is key to preventing further damage to your oral and systemic health.
Dental Cleanings What to Expect
Dr. Robinson and his team work cooperatively to provide our patients with top quality dental care that creates a foundation for lifelong oral wellness. With over 65 years of combined experience, our dental hygienists are some of the most highly trained and accomplished dental professionals in the area. Each is compassionate and dedicated to their work, adeptly providing gentle, thorough dental cleanings.
Using the most modern techniques and instruments, your oral hygienist will remove build up from your teeth by gently cleaning and polishing them. Dental cleanings are a safe, comfortable, and highly effective preventive measure.
Dental cleanings should be performed twice a year beginning from an early age and continued throughout adulthood. We recommend that children have their first dental visit by age 1. Dr. Robinson will consult with parents on when dental cleanings will become necessary for their children depending on oral development.
Comfortable, Compassionate Dentistry
Our office is equipped with state of the art technology and adorned with superb amenities to ensure your maximum comfort. From massaging dental chairs to weighted blankets, we have mastered the art of making our patients feel welcomed and relaxed. We have touchscreen games and televisions to keep patients of all ages entertained during their dental cleanings. Our patients receive the best in modern dentistry and enjoy our attention to the finer details of their dental experience.
For patients who may experience dental anxiety, or avoid routine cleanings due to fear of the dentist, our dental care team may recommend oral conscious sedation options. Conscious sedation can help you relax so that you can receive the dental health care you need. Dr. Robinson will gather your medical history and discuss your options with you before using conscious sedation to ensure your safety.
