Dental Cleaning An Overview
A dental cleaning is an important part of routine preventive care at Boulder Valley Dental Center and can play a role in the longevity of your natural smile. While good oral hygiene at home is also important, your dental hygienist can reach tooth surfaces that are often missed with daily tooth brushing. While cleaning your teeth, we look for any signs of decay or damage that can be more easily addressed in the early stages.
Dr. Hughes recommends that you visit our Louisville dentist office twice a year for a dental cleaning and routine screenings that are also part of preventive dental care. Keeping your smile clean and healthy benefits both oral and overall health. The mouth-body connection is an important one that continues to be studied. The state of your dental health can directly impact your risk for many diseases, or make existing disease more difficult to manage. This has been proven for both cardiovascular and systemic disease such as diabetes, but studies have shown that there is a much wider impact from deteriorating oral health.
At Boulder Valley Dental Center, we want you to enjoy the many benefits of a healthy smile. Our individualized approach preventive dental care is focused on patient education and disease prevention. Dr. Hughes takes time to get to know you and understand your unique risk factors when it comes to the health of your smile. Lifestyle habits, medical conditions, medications and genetics all affect the health and function of your smile and it is our goal to offer you the highest standard of care that addresses all aspects of your occlusal system: the teeth, gums and jaw joints.
