At Yankee Valley Dental we provide dental cleanings to remove stain and tartar, but also to increase the health of your whole body.
Dental cleanings are an integral part of the health of your mouth and your body. But it doesn’t have to be only that – attending a wedding? Going on a date? Giving a presentation? You can come see us for just polishing of your teeth. It is inexpensive and can take away majority of staining, allowing for a brighter smile for your big day!
Oral hygiene is more than just having clean teeth. There is more than more research to suggest that gum disease affects your heart health, increases chance of stroke, and increases likelihood of delivering preterm and low-birth babies among pregnant women.
Some people accumulate little tartar, while others seem to get them quickly no matter how much they try to improve their home care. The truth is that we all have different genetics, diet, and susceptibility. It doesn’t make sense to have the same length and type of cleaning to individuals with completely different backgrounds. This is why at Yankee Valley Dental we like to do your exam first to determine your needs.
We offer dentistry to patients of all ages, putting the utmost importance in the quality of work that we provide.
Of course you can still get a cleaning done on the same day as your exam appointment if you choose so! In some occasions we do recommend a second cleaning appointment get your teeth closer to a healthy state.
Patients who are consistent with seeing their dentist every 6-12 months are less likely to require a second cleaning appointment.
What You Need to Know
Did You Know?
Everyone knows that sweets can cause cavities. But what you may not know is that frequency of snacking plays a very important factor in development of cavities. For example, if you are eating the same amount of sweets in one sitting vs over the course of the day, cavities are more likely to develop in the latter case. This is because the teeth don’t get as much change to ‘remineralize’ themselves after multiple snacks. The best thing you can do is to drink lots of water to neutralize the pH in the mouth, and decrease the number of snacks.
