Oral Hygiene Maintenance

 

At SmilesPlus Dental Care, we place a huge emphasis on our oral hygiene maintenance program. We believe that this will allow us to stay on top of your oral health, and allow us to detect any early arising conditions, so treatment can be indicated prior to problems escalating.

 

We recommend that our patients have their teeth and mouth checked regularly, accompanied with professional dental cleaning every 6 months.

A professional dental cleaning will keep your teeth nice and clean, it will also ensure your gums stay healthy and your breath fresh.

 

The professional cleaning involves:

          -Scale and clean – plaque and calculus (tartar) are cleaned off

          -Polish – external surface stains on teeth are removed leaving the tooth surface smooth

          -Fluoride treatment – Fluoride is applied to the cleaned surface.

           This strengthens the tooth enamel and helps combat decay
