Brush up on professional teeth cleaning services, the backbone of preventive care
Routine dental check-ups are the backbone of boutique dentistry, the Sky Dental way! And no dental check-up at our office in Littleton would be complete without a professional teeth cleaning.
The process, the value of professional care
Generally, healthy patients who do not have specific risk factors for dental or periodontal disease and oral cancer will visit us for a check-up every six months or twice yearly. Risk factors for the oral conditions listed here include smoking, vaping, use of tobacco products, comorbidities like diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, and personal challenges to consistent, proper oral care at home.
Each check-up primarily starts with a dental cleaning and individualized x-rays based on your determined needs. Our friendly and kind dental hygienists have specialized training in how to clean the teeth and at the gum line. They use the AIR-FLOW® air polishing equipment to gently remove surface stains and plaque, then finish with a gentle and thorough removal of stubborn tartar (plaque build-up) from the teeth and gum line. There are many benefits to such a precision service, including:
- Professional cleaning helps to identify and arrest risk factors that might cause the development of enamel erosion, tooth decay, gum inflammation, and periodontal (gum) disease by eradicating harmful bacteria and reducing bacterial counts to promote a healthy balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria
- Personalized preventive care to identify what oral hygiene aids, techniques, products, and cleaning intervals are best suited to keep your mouth and body healthy.
- Fosters all-important self-confidence by removing stains to promote whiter, more youthful, and vibrant-looking teeth
- Such cleanings also culminate with a good polishing to promote minty-fresh breath and a mouth that feels (and is!) uber-clean!
Our hygienists are happy to answer any questions and address any concerns you may have about brushing and flossing your teeth, and how to help you prevent gum disease. They can even demonstrate ways to better clean hard-to-reach teeth or tricky areas, such as underneath dental bridges or how to clean the back teeth more effectively. We love to make recommendations about oral care products that you can trust and that will help you to protect the health and beautiful appearance of your teeth, gums, and mouth. With that being said, there is no substitute for professional care.
Our hygienists remove tartar, which cannot be removed with standard toothbrushes. Our dentists also use their expertise and advanced diagnostics during check-ups to pinpoint problems early – even before they produce symptoms. This approach supports proactive care and keeps pain, other undesirable symptoms, and damage at bay. Regular visits to our Littleton, Colorado office are also a great time to apply professional preventive products, such as dental sealants and fluoride varnish.
