Professional cleanings are an important part of your dental health routine. During a professional cleaning, we are able to get your teeth far cleaner than you can at home even in the hard-to-reach areas. We also check for signs of dental diseases. Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale dental cleaning dentist, offers comprehensive dental cleanings and checkups for patients of all ages.
The American Dental Association recommends having a cleaning at least every six months. This is a good rule of thumb, but individual needs can vary. Dr. Martirosyan, our expert in dental cleaning in Glendale, may recommend having more frequent cleanings if you have a history of major dental problems, if you smoke, if you have diabetes or if you have other issues that can increase your risk of dental disease.
Glendale Dental Cleaning
Dr. Martirosyan, our Glendale dental cleaning dentist, uses special tools to clean all tartar and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth. These tools can clean your teeth more effectively and thoroughly and can remove even the mineralized deposits that accumulate when plaque is not removed frequently or thoroughly enough. We also use a special polishing paste and brush that smoothes the surface of your teeth and polishes away those pesky superficial stains. We finish with floss to clean between each set of teeth and along the gumline.
At your appointment, Dr. Martirosyan, our expert in dental cleaning in Glendale, may make specific recommendations to help you keep your teeth clean between professional cleanings. These may include new techniques or products. For most patients, good dental hygiene involves brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Use fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your teeth and a soft-bristled brush to clean thoroughly without damaging your enamel. Floss or an interdental cleaner can be used to clean between your teeth. Finally, a healthy diet plays a big role in your dental health. The wrong foods can increase your risk of plaque buildup, enamel erosion and cavities while healthy choices can strengthen and clean your teeth while nourishing your body.
