Why Is Comprehensive Dental Cleaning So Important?

One of the best things you can do as a dental patient is to stay informed about your dental health. And although it’s easy to get online or pick up a mail flyer advertising a local dentist with great deals, you don’t always know what you’re getting into. Here at Centennial dental center, we pride ourselves on being transparent with our patients every step of the way. One of the things that we like to emphasize most to our patients is that unlike other dental offices that offer traditional dental exams, we take it one step further and offer our patients comprehensive dental cleanings.

What Is a Comprehensive Dental Cleaning?

It’s easy to take a look in a patient’s mouth and call it good, but it takes a lot more attention to detail to analyze a patient’s mouth and check for any underlying conditions or concerns. Here at Centennial dental center, we look at all of our patients on a case by case basis while giving them each a thorough, comprehensive dental cleaning. During your comprehensive dental cleaning, we will not only clean and polish your teeth, but we will also check for damaged or infected parts of the mouth.

To treat these areas, our dental hygienists use ultrasonic therapy to cleanse and remove the infection. After which they remove rough areas from the surface of the infected tooth and root to prevent bacterial toxins from forming. If needed, our hygienists will also apply any medication to your gumlines.

Our goal at our office is to perform a comprehensive dental cleaning on our patients every six months to prevent any potential oral issues from getting worse. With careful attention and detail, we are confident that our staff will give you the cleanest, healthiest smile around.
