Brushing and flossing your teeth aren’t enough to fully protect your oral health.
You’ll also need to make sure you schedule a teeth cleaning with our dentist at least every six months.
Only a dental professional will be able to remove hardened plaque called tartar so you can avoid tooth decay and gum disease.
Benefits of Teeth Cleanings
Our dental hygienist uses a special tool called a scaler to remove plaque from teeth. If you notice our dental hygienist is taking longer than usually to remove plaque, this is a sign you need to take better care of your teeth. For example, many of our patients have benefited from using a fluoride rinse every day. Once we clean your teeth, our dentist will be able to discuss ways you can improve your oral health.
During a routine dental cleaning, we use gritty toothpaste to polish your teeth and remove surface stains. Over time, your teeth can get discolored from food particles and plaque left behind. Fortunately, we are able to clean your teeth so you can continue smiling with confidence.
Dr. VanSlambrouck DDS and his team are dedicated to helping patients maintain healthy smiles by providing preventive dentistry services like teeth cleanings. To schedule your appointment with our Holland dentist, call VanSlambrouck Family Dentistry at (616) 394-4700.
