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.
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.
