Chicago Dental Cleanings in Lakeview & South Loop
For most people, it is recommended to get dental cleanings twice a year. However, those who are genetically disposed to increased plaque buildup or already have gum disease should get more frequent cleanings. These cleanings are necessary to ensure a healthy development of the teeth and good overall oral health. Brushing and flossing at home are useful in removing plaque, but a good professional cleaning is needed to remove calcium or tarter from the teeth. If this hardened plaque isn’t removed, it can lead to decay, infections, and gum disease.
A Thorough Examination
During your visit, one of our dental hygienists will complete an oral exam to determine if you require additional treatment. They will then thoroughly clean the teeth to remove hardened plaque on the teeth and even below the gum line. They focus on areas where home care may not be enough, as well as by removing surface stains and ensuring all plaque is removed. This preventive measure can also reduce the recurrence of plaque. This ensures a happy, healthy mouth for many of our patients.
Frequent scheduled cleanings are the best way to ensure good oral health and the continuing health of your teeth. For more questions or to schedule an appointment, please contact our office today.
