Routine Dental Hygiene in Walnut Creek Area

Best Practices for Routine Dental Hygiene

The best oral hygiene starts at home when you brush and floss but attending regular dental hygiene visits at your dental office can go a long way towards ensuring that your oral health is optimal. Dr. Troy Schmedding and the team at Family Dentistry of Walnut Creek, California, are here to help you maintain your smile as healthy as possible. With professional teeth cleanings at Family Dentistry, you can expect a personalized approach and a gentle touch. Our goal is to have you leave our office with your best smile.

Why Do You Need Regular Professional Cleaning?

Most of us understand that we need to see our dentist regularly for professional cleanings. Specifically, you should have your teeth professionally cleaned twice every year. Unfortunately, many of us are reactive about our dental care instead of proactive. Life keeps us busy, and it’s easy to put things off if there isn’t something painful going on with our teeth. Nevertheless, people of all ages should see the dentist regularly for professional cleaning.

What Happens at a Professional Dental Hygiene Visit?

Here is what your team of dental professionals will do when you visit our office for a professional cleaning.

Visual Inspection

The team will perform a visual inspection of your whole mouth and note any problem areas that the dentist should be aware of. That includes cavities or gum disease.

Remove Tartar and Plaque

Our dental hygienists will remove the harmful build-up of tartar and plaque from your teeth using a scaler. That is a crucial step because brushing and flossing can’t remove tartar build-up.

Polish Your Teeth

After thoroughly cleaning your teeth, they will polish them with slightly gritty toothpaste and a high-powered device. That will make your teeth even cleaner and smooth the area as it helps to prevent plaque and bacteria from accumulating.

Floss and Apply Fluoride Treatment

Once your teeth are nice and clean, we will floss your teeth and gums thoroughly. Then, if needed, we will apply a fluoride treatment to your teeth.
