The best way to improve your oral health and ensure your teeth look amazing is to get your teeth professionally cleaned by our trained Dental Hygienists here at McOmie Family Dentistry, at least, twice a year.
The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) strongly recommends that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning, at least, every six months. This professional dental cleaning bolsters your brushing, flossing and rinsing regimen at home and gives our dentists an opportunity to discover areas of the mouth that may need specific care.
Patients who practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing, flossing and rinsing routines rarely experience discomfort during a cleaning. However, those who have neglected their oral hygiene practices may encounter some sensitivity or minor discomfort during a teeth cleaning. To alleviate any discomfort our hygienist can use a topical anesthetic prior to the cleaning.
We believe the best kind of general dentistry is the kind that keeps our patients healthy and happy, so during a cleaning, you’ll receive preventive and diagnostic services in addition to any required educational information.
