Why are Regular Dental Hygiene Appointments and Exams Important?

While routine home maintenance is effective, it only focuses on areas of the tooth above the gum line (known as scaling). A professional in-office cleaning will be able to clean your teeth above the gum line, but also below the gum line as well (known as root planning). Since regular scaling and root planing procedures can remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria toxins from the hard to reach areas, regular cleanings from your dentist are one of the most important steps a person can take to make sure that teeth and gums are as healthy as possible.

First, general cleanings allow your dentist to make sure that any plaque or tartar that has developed along the gum line is scraped away. Plaque and tartar can lead to the development of gum disease. Removing both as soon as possible prevents the health of the gums and teeth from being compromised. Second, general cleanings give us a chance to identify any potential issues that may have a negative effect on a patient’s oral health.

In the world of dentistry, prevention is the best way to make sure the health of your mouth is kept as optimal as possible. When you visit Montgomery Dental Centre for general cleaning, we will make sure that your mouth is as healthy as possible, take the time to discuss any issues that may be present or are at risk of developing, and work with you to develop a care plan that will handle all of your dental needs.

The Montgomery Dental Centre Oral Hygiene Process:

A cleaning and hygiene appointment usually takes between 40-60 minutes, depending on age and existing oral hygiene, and includes the following:

  • Patient screening, including assessment of oral health conditions, teeth history, dental charting, and more
  • Dental cleaning procedures, such as cleaning and polishing teeth, stains, cavities, and gums
  • Examining your teeth and gums for any decay or diseases
  • Taking and developing dental radiographs
  • Applying fluoride, sealants, and other applications for your teeth
  • An oral cancer screening and exam at least once a year to check the head, neck, and jaw areas for confirmation of health.
  • An intra-oral exam to check the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for confirmation of health

How often should you visit us for a Hygiene Visit?

Montgomery Dental Centre understands that each patient has different dental needs, and therefore will require a different hygiene schedule. While most people visit their dentist every six months, some people benefit from coming in every 3-4 months, while others might only require an appointment every 9-12 months. How often you schedule a hygiene visit depends on many factors, including how your home oral health maintenance care is, whether your teeth are susceptible to excess accumulation of plaque and calculus, how crowded your teeth are, and whether or not you have missing teeth or any fillings. Montgomery Dental Center is happy to discuss with you how often you should have a dental cleaning, based on your unique needs and situation, and we look forward to hearing from you soon to discuss your dental health needs and concerns.
