Teeth Cleaning in Melrose, MA
Notice a difference in your smile with a thorough prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) at Melrose Family Dental. Our teeth cleaning procedure prevents tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. By maintaining your teeth cleanings and continuing your normal dental care routine, you will prevent future dental issues.
Your teeth cleaning will include:
Tartar and Plaque Removal – Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps to prevent tartar and plaque. However, most patients are unable to reach many areas in the mouth which creates a risk of buildup. Those hard to reach areas are usually in the back molars and gum line. Our team is able to reach these areas and effectively remove any buildup.
Teeth Polishing – Surface stains can be removed with our teeth polishing techniques. If you are concerned about teeth discoloration, a teeth cleaning is the first step to a brighter smile. Afterwards, if you still want a whiter shade, we could recommend professional teeth whitening.
For best dental results, schedule your teeth cleaning twice a year. Patients suffering from periodontal disease may need to schedule theirs every 3 to 4 months. Teeth cleaning is a preventative measure against tooth decay and gum disease. So, be proactive and avoid dental issues by maintaining healthy dental hygiene.
