The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings

Dental cleanings are not just about keeping your smile bright; they're a crucial part of maintaining overall oral health. At Ballantyne Family Dental, our licensed hygienists utilize advanced tools to meticulously remove plaque and tartar buildup, which if left untreated, can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Regular cleanings are your first line of defense, ensuring your teeth and gums remain healthy. We also offer additional preventative measures, such as sealants and fluoride treatments, to further protect your teeth from potential problems.

Why Regular Cleanings and Preventative Care are Necessary

Regular dental cleanings are essential for everyone, serving as a critical preventive measure against tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque, when not removed, hardens into tartar, providing a breeding ground for bacteria that harm your teeth and gums. These conditions can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and eventually, more severe forms of gum disease. Routine cleanings at Ballantyne Family Dental can help prevent these issues, keeping your smile healthy and bright.

What to Expect During Your Dental Cleaning and Preventative Visit

Your visit begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your gums for signs of any gingivitis or periodontal disease, including measuring the depth of the pocketing around each tooth. Identifying deep pockets early allows us to offer timely treatments to combat gum disease. Our skilled hygienists then thoroughly clean your teeth, removing every trace of tartar and plaque, followed by a detailed polishing and flossing. Additionally, we’ll discuss personalized preventative treatments to further protect your oral health.
