The key to obtaining and maintaining a high level of oral health is to stay vigilant about regular examinations and professional teeth cleanings. Most adults should be seeing their Dentist for teeth cleaning at least once every 6 months- sometimes more frequently. Dentistry by Design serves adult patients in the Hinsdale, Illinois area, offering superior dental treatments and world-renowned Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Michael Morgan’s extensive experience and Swiss-trained skills.
When you come in for a hygiene appointment at our practice an expert hygienist will use specialized instruments to gently get rid of soft plaque and tartar on the teeth and just under the gumline. They’ll floss those hard-to-reach spots and then polish your teeth.
Plaque is a sticky layer of bacteria that builds up on the teeth and around the gumline. When it’s not removed quickly, it hardens into what we call calculus, or tartar. This hardened plaque can’t be removed at home with a regular toothbrush or dental floss, and it increases your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
During a professional dental cleaning, a hygienist uses special tools to safely eliminate plaque and tartar, helping to prevent cavities and infection. Additionally, they buff away surface stains and also polish the teeth, creating a smoother surface that repels food and plaque more efficiently. The end result is a whiter, healthier, more attractive smile and a clean you can’t replicate on your own.
As the hygienist performs a cleaning, they’re also able to get a close-up glimpse into the health of your teeth and gums and look for things like broken fillings. Since Dr. Morgan will examine you as well, he too will be able to detect problems in their earliest stages.
