Glendale Dentist Encourages Patients To Keep Up With Their Schedule Of Professional Cleanings

Written by Dr. McKay on Jun 8, 2021

Sticking to your regular schedule of professional cleanings and assessments is crucial if you want to achieve and maintain a healthy smile. Today our Glendale dentists are going to be talking to you about some of the reasons that professional appointments are so important. As always, we encourage you to reach out to our team if you’re looking for more information!

Tartar Removal

When plaque is left, undisturbed, on dental enamel for a period of time, it eventually hardens and bonds to the tooth structure. At this point, plaque has turned into tartar. The thing about tartar is that, because it’s calcified, it’s actually very difficult to remove; you need a dental professional to help!

Long-Term Planning

Our dental team is here to help you achieve your short and long-term oral health goals. If you have big dreams for your smile, our team will help you figure out how to achieve your desired results. Regularly scheduled, six-month visits give us a structure around which to make a plan.

At-Home Optimization

Few things impact your smile more dramatically than your daily oral hygiene routine. Find out what type of toothbrush is right for you, and what type of cleaning formulations are ideal, by collaborating with our comprehensive dentist. We want to make sure that you are getting the most out of your at-home routine.

Oral Cancer Screenings

As part of every appointment, our team completes an oral cancer screening, to assess your smile for signs of cancerous or pre-cancerous tissues.

Even if it has been a long time since you have had a dental cleaning, our Glendale dentists are here to help you get back on track. Give our office a call to get started today!
