Dental Cleaning and Reduction of Cavities

Dental Cleaning and Reduction of Cavities


If you have a cavity Ajax you can reduce the chances of another cavity with regular dental cleanings and proper oral hygiene.

Proper oral hygiene

Proper oral hygiene is necessary to reduce the chances of cavities; this means properly brushing twice daily and flossing.

Not only the way you brush and floss should be done properly but you should use the correct toothbrush and floss.

There are several types of toothbrushes so speak to your dentist about which one will best fit your needs. It may be an electronic spinning brush or it could be an electronic water-pick system but your dentist will know exactly which will best suit your needs as they examine your teeth twice a year.

Dental cleaning

Dental cleaning Ajax also helps reduce the number of cavities you have since a professional dental cleaning removes plaque and food particles from your teeth that your toothbrush and flossing does not reach.

The buildup of plaque and food particles around the gums and between the teeth will lead to decay which causes cavities.

If this is your first dental cleaning do not worry they do not hurt.

Your Ajax dentist or hygienist will scrape loose the plaque and food particles away with tools made specifically for cleaning.

This cleaning is usually done during your regular bi-annual checkup.

After they scrape away the plaque and food they then will polish your teeth.
