To maintain a healthy mouth, it is essential to have a good dental hygiene routine at home and regular visits to the dentist, every six months.
Professional dental cleaning strengthens the home hygiene program (brushing and flossing) and allows the dentist to locate the areas of the mouth that require special attention.
Those who regularly practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing and flossing techniques are generally comfortable while they have their teeth cleaned.
However, those who have neglected their oral hygiene habits may experience discomfort or tenderness during dental cleaning. The dentist can use a local anesthetic before cleaning to reduce any discomfort.
During a recall and cleaning appointment, Dre. Hindié will provide you with diagnostic and prevention services, as well as useful educational information.
