Daily brushing and flossing is critical, but it’s also very important to come into Evergreen Dental for regular oral hygiene visits in Dartmouth. Regular dental cleanings are the best way to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy. These appointments provide your teeth and gums with a thorough cleaning, inspection, and preventative maintenance.
If plaque and tartar are left on the teeth, it provides a breeding ground for bacteria. The highly trained and friendly hygienists at Evergreen Dental will provide a thorough cleaning, taking preventive action to stop problems before they start. Our friendly dental hygienists will "scale" your teeth — removing tartar build-up and polish the surface removing minor stains. You may also receive a fluoride treatment to help fight decay.
But oral hygiene is about much more than just cleaning. They give us an opportunity to tell you if you are brushing and flossing correctly, and examine your teeth and gums for potential problems. Regular cleanings at Evergreen Dental help in the early detection of gum disease, a known cause of heart attack and stroke.
If your teeth require restorative work, it's important we find out as soon as possible in order to prevent the decay from spreading. It's also important to have your gums inspected, because periodontal disease (gum disease) can lead to more serious health problems.
Regular oral hygiene visits in Dartmouth with the Evergreen Dental team allow us to spot problems and take action immediately — preventing the issues from getting worse.
