Your oral hygiene is directly linked to your overall health, so when you care for your teeth and gums properly, you are tending to your general well-being. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups are necessary to ensure your dental health is in optimal shape. During your professional cleaning at Eureka Ridge Dentistry, you will learn all about your oral health and tips to keep you and your family’s preventive care going in the right direction.

The benefits of keeping your teeth healthy with a dental cleaning

Preventive care like dental cleaning, sealants, and a fluoride treatment provide endless benefits to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Our team strives to use the highest level of technology and safest dental materials to manage your gums and periodontal health. A professional dental cleaning helps remove tedious plaque and calculus that can often lead to periodontal disease, bad breath, and even affect medical problems like heart disease and diabetes.

At your hygiene visit, our team will educate you on the best oral hygiene recommendations, check your teeth for tooth decay, and perform a thorough head-and-neck screening for oral cancer. The safest dental x-rays are recommended when appropriate to diagnose and recommend dental treatment if needed.

Eureka Ridge Dentistry Preventive Services

A diagnostic examination is performed at your routine visits to evaluate your teeth for cavities and guarantee all existing fillings and prosthetics are in tip top shape. We offer fluoride treatment and dental sealants to help prevent tooth decay in both children and adults. It is our goal to help keep your teeth in the best shape and protect your pearly whites from any long-term dental problems. While we are always here for your regular dental visits, don’t hesitate to come in for any preventive services that can benefit your healthy smile.

Tips for maintaining a healthy smile

  • Don’t forget to brush and floss twice a day and use an American Dental Association (ADA) approved fluoride toothpaste
  • Brush your tongue to prevent halitosis (bad breath) and remove bacteria built-up
  • Wear a custom mouthguard if you experience teeth clenching at night or play contact sports to avoid teeth and soft tissue trauma
  • Eat a well-balanced diet including low carbohydrates and processed sugars, which contribute to tooth decay
  • Drink plentiful water to keep your mouth hydrated and flush any food debris that may get left behind after a meal
  • Don’t forget to schedule your professional dental cleaning every 6 months. Some patients require more frequent cleanings to ensure healthy gums
