Routine Hygiene Cleanings in Thibodaux Area

Oral Hygiene, The Secret to Strong, Healthy Teeth

Of the many factors that contribute to a beautiful smile and healthy teeth, none is more important than routine dental cleaning. Regular hygiene cleaning from Acadia Family Dentistry in Thibodaux can help prevent decay, oral infections, and gum disease. A professional cleaning will also bring out the beauty of your pearly whites by removing surface stains that can dull your teeth. If you’re skipping bi-annual cleanings, you’re missing a key component of your oral hygiene routine.

Makings of a Good Oral Hygiene Routine

Oral hygiene begins at home by ensuring you brush and floss your teeth regularly. Brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste can help prevent plaque buildup to protect your teeth from cavities. A good oral hygiene routine will also include:

  • Flossing at least once daily
  • Rinsing with an anti-microbial mouthwash
  • Maintaining a healthy diet that restricts sugary foods and drinks
  • Avoiding the use of tobacco products that can stain your teeth
  • Scheduling bi-annual checkups and cleanings

Importance of Dental Cleaning

Brushing and flossing alone won’t rid your teeth of all plaque and bacteria that can cause decay and gum disease, as there are areas in your mouth that your toothbrush just can’t reach. Dr. Nhu Le uses special dental tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup and leave your teeth spotlessly clean. Afterward, we’ll polish your teeth to give them a smooth, shiny appearance. We also offer fluoride treatments and sealants as additional protective measures against decay and dental disease.

Before cleaning your teeth, Dr. Le will check your mouth for irregularities like shifting teeth, crooked teeth, overcrowding, loose teeth, a bad bite, etc., that could pose a risk to your oral health. Resolving these issues early could spare you from lengthy, costly treatments.
