Toluca Lake Dentist Office Cleans Teeth and Gums During Professional Dental Cleanings

Written by Dr. McKay on Aug 13, 2013

Our Toluca Lake dentists are truly your partners in dental care. What exactly does this mean for you as the patient? It means that the dental care we provide complements and enhances the dental hygiene steps that you take at home. It takes both of us to keep your smile looking and feeling great.

So how exactly do professional dental cleanings help you achieve your dental goals? Read on to find out!

The first goal of at-home and professional dental care is to prevent cavities and gum disease. So just as you remove plaque and tartar by brushing and flossing at home, our dentist clears away plaque and tartar during your dental cleaning. Fortunately for you, our dental team is able to get rid of that persistent and hard-to-reach dental bacteria that you would otherwise miss.

There are also aesthetic benefits to having a professional dental cleaning. You will probably notice that your environmental stains look lighter, and your enamel looks whiter, post-professional cleaning. Plaque and tartar can mar your smile, making your teeth look gray and yellow, and your gum tissue dark and dull. Once these bacterial substances are removed, your smile will look refreshed.

We understand that from time to time dental problems do pop up. When you are having a professional cleaning every six months, you are giving our dentist a chance to identify and treat these problems in a timely manner. When we can treat dental problems in their earliest stages, we can help you avoid long-term complications of dental disease.

Are you ready to take the next step to perfecting your smile? If so, call our Toluca Lake dentist office to get the information you need and to schedule your consultation. We look forward to talking with you and helping you enjoy your best smile!
