Maintaining routine cleanings and exams as well as flossing is extremely important to your overall dental health. Using a good toothbrush such as a Sonicare toothbrush can help maintain gum health by keeping your teeth free of plaque and tartar. On top of your daily hygiene, we recommend getting a professional cleaning every 6 months. Having your teeth professionally cleaned is known as a prophylaxis. The hygienists at Grand Corner Dental will clean your teeth using various instruments and devices to loosen and remove deposits such as plaque and tartar. Routine xrays and exams are also beneficial for detecting any cavities or other problems.
