Cleaning & Preventative Care/Ultrasonic Scaling
A preventative dental care is a cooperative effort by the patient, dentist, and dental staff to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Your dentist at Apple Dental Care will educate and guide you to follow proper dental hygiene and care practices at home with twice a year Ultrasonic cleaning. Regular brushing and flossing should be performed twice a day to remove biofilm and food particles lodged between teeth. To prevent cavities, gum disease and other complications from occurring, you need to take special precautions. Maintain a well-balanced diet, avoid foods high in sugar and use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your tooth enamel. With the right Prevention care mindset and regular dental cleaning, you can easily maintain your dental health and fight the risk of gum disease.
It is continued in the dental office by the efforts of your dentist and dental hygienist to promote, restore, and maintain your oral health. Prevention also includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Sealants and fluoride are also great preventive treatments that help protect the teeth.
