Dental Cleanings in Danbury

Protecting Your Oral Health

Doctor inspecting teethAt Jay M. Marks, DMD, we understand how important preventative oral care is for the continuing health of your smile. That’s why we offer general and routine cleanings for patients who need plaque or tartar removed from the surfaces of their teeth. Bacteria can easily get caught in areas of your teeth where it’s hard to reach from daily brushing, so it’s critical to stay up to date with your dental exams and go in for a cleaning at least twice a year to prevent harmful oral infections such as gum disease.

Teeth Cleaning Procedure

During the teeth cleaning process, various instruments are used to perform tooth scaling, tooth polishing, and debridement (removal of plaque and calculus that have accumulated on the teeth). These procedures remove hard and soft deposits, which prevents gum disease and cavities from occurring.

Why regular dental cleanings are important:

  • Help prevent bad breath
  • Maintain a bright and white smile
  • Help prevent gum disease
  • Detect dental problems early
  • Help prevent oral cancer
  • Maintain good physical health

How Can I Keep My Teeth Clean?

Regular cleanings are an essential part of keeping your teeth clean, healthy, and radiant. Daily flossing and brushing can help prevent unscheduled visits to the dentist when combined with annual dental exams and dental teeth cleanings every 6 months. This is also extremely important for avoiding tarter build-up, cavities, and gum disease. Additionally, maintaining a healthy diet and avoiding things such as smoking, eating foods high in sugar, and smoking tobacco, can all lead to harmful health risks for your overall dental health.
