Dental Cleanings Aren’t Just For Your Smile
It feels great to leave your dentist’s office with teeth that feel nice, smooth, and squeaky clean! Aside from the sparkling smile, however, dental cleanings actually help your whole body stay healthy. Recent research has shown a systemic link between infections of the mouth, like gum disease, with serious conditions elsewhere in the body such as heart disease, kidney failure and liver disease. These links make it evident that dental cleanings are important for more than just your oral health—they’re important for your overall health as well.
The Cleaning Procedure
When you visit your West Seattle dentist for a professional cleaning, you can expect a skilled, thorough treatment and a comfortable experience in a positive, upbeat atmosphere. A standard dental cleaning consists of scaling and polishing your teeth. We will use a professional toothbrush and paste to get your teeth smooth and sparkling, and provide you with personal oral hygiene instructions tailored to your unique dental needs. We may also clean your teeth using an ultrasonic instrument called a cavitron that uses water to aid in the removal of tartar, plaque, and staining. This tool may be used for patients with difficult to remove tartar, or for those who have gone a long time between dental cleanings.
