Oral Hygiene

  

                                       

Maintaining an oral hygiene routine is very important for ensuring the long term health of your teeth and gums. Bad oral health may lead to different health issues like stroke and heart disease. Tooth n Care places very high importance on preventative and diagnostic oral-care. We strive to help all our patients attain optimal oral health by offering excellent oral hygiene check-up . The Seminole Dental  in Texas City is conveniently located near MS Doss City Park and Seminole Hospital District is a low cost dental office by me.

We Recommend That You:

  • Brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss each night as brushing alone only cleans up to 60% of the teeth surface.
  • Use a mouthwash as many mouthwashes contain antibacterial ingredients to help prevent gum disease and fluoride to help prevent decay.
  • Visit the dentist every 6 months for a routine check-up and professional clean.

During your dental check-up, our dentist will do a thorough dental examination to assess your overall oral health and other problems like tooth decay, cracks, gum disease and old dental work which have worn out and need replacement. If there is any dental problem to be addressed, our dentist will discuss and provide you with the best and minimal invasive treatments

Teeth Cleaning: Scaling and polishing

Plaque and tartar can cause a variety of dental diseases such as gingivitis, gum disease and dental decay. Plaque can be removed by tooth brushing and flossing, but tartar can only be removed using professional dental instruments. Scaling and polishing routinely once or twice annually improves oral health by removing plaque and tartar from the teeth. Surface stains from coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco use are also cleaned away during polishing.

Scaling does not require the use of local anesthetic (injections to numb the teeth) but can be used if the teeth are sensitive. Scaling is performed using an ultrasonic tip, which vibrates at high frequency to remove tartar, and hand instruments to remove tartar below the gums. After scaling, we will polish off your teeth with a rotating rubber cup (similar to an electric toothbrush) and polishing paste containing fluoride for a clean feel.
