Why You Need Professional Dental Cleanings

Dental Cleanings | Saint Paul Dentist

Many patients wonder why they need professional dental cleanings if they brush and floss their teeth regularly. Your toothbrush and floss can go a long way to protecting your teeth and gums from decay or infection. 

Dental Cleaning at Highgrove Dental Care

A dental cleaning in our St. Paul, MN dental office can remove the tartar that collects in places where your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. The areas between your teeth and just beneath your gum line are highly susceptible to collecting tartar even if you brush and floss regularly.

Once plaque hardens into tartar, it cannot be removed with brushing and flossing alone. Our hygienists are thorough, yet gentle. They use precision instruments to expertly remove tartar that cannot be removed with a toothbrush so that you can avoid gum disease caused by the bacteria in tartar.

Sometimes tartar is hard to spot with the naked eye alone! Using dental x-rays, we can identify hidden areas with tartar and remove it at your dental cleaning appointment.

A dental cleaning is a great time for us to perform a dental exam and make sure your teeth, gums, and jaw are all healthy. We look at each individual tooth, your gums throughout your mouth, and your bite in order to identify any dental conditions. By catching and treating dental conditions early, we can ensure that your smile remains healthy.

A dental cleaning and comprehensive oral exam at least once every six months is the best insurance policy to protect the health of your smile. By making a small investment in preventing dental conditions, you can avoid many more serious threats to your oral health in the future.
