Dental Hygiene

Keep your smile healthy and achieve maximum dental health.
Patients have their teeth cleaned because bacteria not removed can cause disease in teeth and gums.

Examinations and cleanings

More frequent dental cleanings will remove odorous bacteria and food particles from gum pockets below the gumline by scaling the teeth with dental instruments specially designed to fit beneath the gumline. When you have your teeth cleaned, you are also reducing your risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Dr. Bodensteiner explains, “Having your teeth cleaned professionally and on a regular basis is critical and many times not given enough consideration.”

Reduce chances for bone and gum loss

Although these oral enemies may start out invisible, their existence is undeniable. With good oral hygiene consisting of regular brushing, flossing, cleanings, and dental exams, the following can be avoided:

  • Cavities- decayed areas of the tooth that usually continue to grow

  • Bad breath- bacteria harbored in the gum pockets

  • Gingivitis- inflammation of the gums

  • Periodontitis- gum disease that destroys the bone under the gums
