What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning

Professional cleanings are designed to remove the buildup of bacteria on your teeth, which is difficult for you to effectively do on your own. During a cleaning, we use special tools to eliminate tartar and plaque from your enamel effectively. After that, our team checks for cavities before flossing and polishing your teeth. This is a good opportunity for our team to share personalized information about how you can best care for your smile at home.

What Does a Dental Exam Include?

We assess your gum health, address any cavities, and conduct an oral cancer screening if necessary. Our team uses the CAMBRA risk assessment tool to identify and treat patients with risk for dental caries.

When you undergo examinations regularly, you allow us to identify any dental issues early to avoid having them develop into severe problems. Being proactive enables us to preserve your oral health and spare you from potentially expensive treatments in the long run.

Your dental exam is also a good time to discuss any cosmetic concerns you might have. Our staff can build a treatment plan around your needs to suit your goals, lifestyle, and budget.

Tips for an Effective Home Dental Routine

Taking good care of your teeth at home works hand in hand with routine dental visits to effectively manage your oral health. The benefits of consistently brushing and flossing at home include:

  • Reducing bacteria buildup that may cause disease
  • Keeping your teeth whiter and brighter
  • Maintaining clean, healthy gums
  • Minimizing cavity risk

Brushing twice a day helps prevent tooth decay. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and short strokes is considered the ideal way to brush. Beginning at the gum line, hold the brush at a 45-degree angle for the most effective technique.

Flossing is as vital as brushing! You need to floss your teeth once a day and preferably more if possible. To properly floss, put the floss between your teeth and your gums in the shape of the letter C. Do not reuse contaminated pieces of floss. Always rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash after brushing and flossing. This helps remove bacteria in hard-to-reach areas.

Fluoride & Sealant Treatments for Adults & Children

Fluoride is a mineral known for its ability to prevent decay. It protects your enamel from being penetrated by acids in the foods you eat. Food acids and plaque weaken your tooth structure weak and may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Using fluorides prevents such issues by adding minerals that strengthen your teeth. The earlier we start applying fluoride, the better we can build a barrier that makes it difficult for acids to penetrate.

Our Marlborough dentist also provides sealants for both children and adults. These treatments help prevent decay through applying them to the back of the child’s teeth. They are easy to apply and can last for up to ten years before another application is required. Sealants add an additional layer of protection that can help keep your smile in excellent health, and protects the back of the teeth where it is hard to brush.

Recovering from Gum Disease

Our skilled professionals fully understand how challenging gum disease can be to handle. We are ready to help you with compassion, providing you with the treatments you need to improve your condition and maintain healthy gums. Deep cleanings, known as scaling and root planing, are used to get your gum health back on track. These methods are designed to treat gum disease that has progressed to a moderate stage. It is a two-step deep cleaning that helps your gums recover from disease by removing toxins, tartar, and plaque from below and above the gum line.
