Dental Hygiene and Cleaning
It is absolutely essential to visit the dentist regularly for dental cleanings. A professional dental cleaning can clear off any plaque or tartar on your teeth that normal brushing just cannot. The cleaning can actually leave your teeth slightly whiter if the staining is on the teeth rather than deeper in (for deeper staining, professional teeth whitening is recommended).
When you come in for a cleaning at Nashua Dental Group, you’ll receive the following:
- A complete dental exam: Your hygienist and dentist will check for signs of periodontal disease as well as cavities. This dental examination is very important as catching dental issues early can save time and money down the line.
- Removal of tartar and plaque: Brushing and flossing at home can only get you so far (even if you use an electric toothbrush), at some point a cleaning at a dental office is needed. Dental plaque can harden into thick, yellow tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional using special tools.
- Tooth polishing: Your dental hygienist will thoroughly polish your teeth, smoothing them out and helping get rid of any stains, plaque or tartar that remain.
The dentists and hygienists in our Nashua practice are trained professionals who will be happy to answer any questions you have about your dental health. To schedule a cleaning, please contact us at our Nashua dental office today!
