The best method to keep your gums, teeth, and mouth healthy is to brush and floss your teeth regularly and to schedule preventative dental care check-ups and professional dental cleanings twice a year.

Professional dental cleanings performed by our Paisley Dental Hygienist can help to prevent and detect tooth decay and gum disease, make your teeth look cleaner and brighter, and improve your oral health in general.

What happens during a professional teeth cleaning by our Paisley Dental Hygienist?

Your teeth and gums are cleaned after a check-up of your mouth and the recording of signs of gum disease such as bleeding, inflammation, and tartar. A dental hygienist removes stubborn plaque and tartar with specific devices, such as an ultrasonic scaler or Airflow Tooth Brushing.

The hygienist will polish your teeth after removing plaque and tartar with a power toothbrush and a special gritty toothpaste. This eliminates surface stains, leaving your teeth smooth and shining.

The Dental Hygienist at our dental practice will then floss your teeth and address any areas of concern with you.

Blessing Dental Care Plan includes regular dental hygiene check-ups to keep your smile healthy.

How Does Poor Dental Hygiene Affect General Health?

Good oral and dental health contribute to overall health. Cavities and gum disease caused by poor dental hygiene can affect your ability to talk and eat properly, producing oral discomfort and bad breath.

Poor oral health can also have negative impacts on other parts of the body. When you neglect your oral hygiene, your heart can suffer as well.

What is Proper Oral hygiene?

Brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an antimicrobial mouthwash are all part of good oral care. Flossing helps in the removal of food debris from difficult-to-reach places. Following your everyday oral hygiene practice, rinse your mouth with mouthwash to guarantee no hazardous bacteria remain.

Sugar has a bad effect on teeth and can promote tooth decay or gum disease, therefore limiting sugary foods and drinks is important.

At Blessing Dental Care, we work hard to make sure that all of our patients have the best oral health possible. That is why our Paisley Dental Hygienist provides excellent dental cleanings and full dental exams.

Is Professional Tooth Cleaning Painful?

Professionally cleaning your teeth isn’t the most pleasant experience, but it shouldn’t hurt. 

If it does hurt, it’s usually due to a variety of causes, such as gum inflammation, tooth decay, or other symptoms that cause heightened sensitivity.

The best method for reducing any discomfort to a minimal is to maintain a proper oral hygiene practice at home in between dental hygienist appointments, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.

If you’re anxious about having your teeth cleaned professionally, we have several proven and effective dental anxiety solutions, so feel free to voice your worries so that we can make your appointment as comfortable as possible!

How often should I visit a Dental Hygienist?

Generally, you should see a dental hygienist every six months, although this depends on a variety of situations.

If you take good care of your teeth and gums and aren’t susceptible to gum disease, a six-month hygiene appointment with your dentist should be enough. However, if your teeth and gums are in bad condition and you are in danger of getting gum disease, you should visit the dentist every three months.

If you smoke, have bad breath, or are pregnant, you may need more frequent dental hygiene appointments.
