A bright, winning smile is something that we all want. In order to achieve and maintain a smile that will connect with those you’re smiling at it is necessary to take proper care of your teeth and practice good dental hygiene. A daily brushing and flossing regiment is a must in any preventative dental care program but it is simply not enough. A Skokie teeth cleaning is the extra bit of professional help that your teeth and gums need to not only look clean but to stay healthy as well. Dentistry should be a stress-free experience and that’s our aim, our entire staff cares about your family’s dental health and treats you with compassion and respect.
We recommend a Skokie teeth cleaning every six months in order to remove plague, tartar and debris from around the teeth and gums. These particles and plague can get inside the enamel of the teeth and form decay, which causes cavities, wears away the root material and may lead to tooth loss. If decay gets between the teeth and gums it often forms deep pockets, which leads to gum diseases, such as gingivitis, that may start off mild but can become quite serious and eventually detach the gums from the teeth. Advanced gum disease can lead to bone loss as well as tooth loss. Regular teeth cleaning can help rid the mouth of these irritants and decay. Our hygienist will use a variety of tools and techniques to clean the teeth and gums including sound vibrations and water blasts but every cleaning is a partnership of technology and the personal touch since it ends up with the hygienist manually scaling the remaining debris, plague and tartar off the teeth and along the gumline. The cleaning is followed by teeth polishing and a review of proper daily maintenance techniques to help you maintain sparkling teeth between cleanings.
Our Skokie tooth cleaning is a compliment to what you do at home on a daily basis. Our practice believes that prevention is a better route to take to healthy teeth and gums than remediation and restoration after disease has caused tooth and gum problems. Helping the family start off a lifetime of healthy teeth by educating them on proper preventative techniques and through regular checkups and cleanings is the goal of entire practice staff. Let’s work together to prevent dental problems by making an appointment for a consultation at our office.
