Regular brushing and flossing is essential to the overall health and well-being of your mouth, but maintaining good dental hygiene also requires regular professional oral exams and dental cleanings. Individuals need to have professional dental cleanings and oral assessments at least every six months, according to their particular needs.
Professional oral exams and dental cleanings are shown to be preventative in nature, helping patients stay away from such problems as tooth decay, gum disease, and infection. Detecting these problems early on, before they progress to more advanced stages is the key to a healthier mouth. At Bay Dental Health, our professional dental hygiene treatments incorporates scaling, root planning, and tooth polishing.
