The Importance of Teeth Cleaning

The first thing most people notice when they look at you is probably your smile. Taking care of your teeth is one of the easiest and best ways to present yourself to the world. At the office of Dental Design, we are dedicated to creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles and maintaining healthy mouths. So whether your dental care needs are general, preventative, restorative, or cosmetic, our experienced and qualified dentist, Dr. Garfield, is sure to meet your every need and expectation. The best place to start your dental care with us is with a teeth cleaning in Buffalo Grove.

By attending in-depth exams and cleanings at our Buffalo Grove dental office, we can help catch problems concerning your teeth and gums earlier than ever, potentially saving you time and money. We believe in a preventative approach for one’s oral hygiene by creating and maintaining beautiful and healthy smiles. As your dentist will tell you, teeth, whether natural or with restorations, survive and thrive in an oral environment that is clean and hygienic. Our preventative program is designed to prevent new cavities, preserve restored teeth, and manage periodontal disease. This includes brushing teeth twice a day in a circular, angled motion with a soft bristled toothbrush, flossing every night, eating a balanced diet, and using antiseptic and fluoride rinses. The combination of all these practices are the best defense against tooth decay. In fact, a study showed that tongue and tooth brushing along with flossing significantly decreased swelling of gum tissue and reduced bad breath in a two week period. It is equally important to visit our dentist twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning to ensure and maintain proper oral hygiene. During your initial visit a cleaning of your teeth will be performed. During your dental care, our dentist will also thoroughly examine your teeth, their supporting structures, and your overall oral anatomy. Your initial oral examination will also include an oral cancer screening, a periodontal evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite).

We take the time to customize and personalize the treatment for each patient. Your visits with us are all about you, your happiness, your comfort, and your dental health. We strive to ensure our patients of all ages have a pleasant experience, and are sent home with a bright, beautiful, healthy smile. You never get the chance to make a second impression, so let our dental practice make sure you leave a lasting and smiling impression.
