Teeth Cleaning and Exams in Delray Beach, FL
An essential part of maintaining good oral hygiene is the routine hygiene maintenance of your teeth and gums. Regularly scheduled visits to your dentist in Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Boynton Beach is vital to good oral health, even if you are brushing your teeth and flossing on a regular basis. Your dentist may discuss your medical history, any past dental work you’ve had done, and what your goals and desires are. Our dental professionals want to make your smile beautiful and healthy, so getting to know each patient is important to us.
What is the teeth cleaning procedure?
During your dental visit, your hygienist will perform various steps to ensure a thorough dental cleaning. Following a comprehensive examination, gum measurements which measure the depth that the gums have detached from the side of the tooth forming a pocket (periodontal pocket) will be taken. We will develop a personalized and custom hygiene program for each patient based upon their needs and desires. Certain products may be suggested to help with home care.
How often do I need a Hygiene checkup?
If you brush and floss on a regular basis, the typical hygiene appointment should be scheduled twice a year, every six months. However, if your dentist and hygienist have determined that you need to make an appointment on a more regular basis, then this will be discussed at your current visit. Every three to four months may be required in some cases until the teeth and gums are healthy enough to maintain a schedule of every six months.
