Dental exams & teeth cleaning in Farmington, CT

Routine dental visits and teeth cleaning are essential for proper oral care. In a dental check-up, your dentist will inspect for indications of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. They may also take X-rays to examine your teeth and jawbone closely.
A dental hygienist usually cleans teeth and eliminates plaque buildup from your gums or the surface of your teeth. This helps to avoid cavities and gum disease, as well as contributes to better-looking teeth.
We recommend our patients come to Gorgeous Smiles Dental in Farmington, CT, for dental exams and teeth cleaning at least once every six months. This enables us to detect any dental issues immediately and stop them from escalating. Schedule your next dental appointment with us today.

Good oral health involves regular dental checkups and cleanings.

Your checkup will include an inspection of your teeth, gums, and mouth by our experienced dentists to look for any signs indicating decayed teeth or inflamed gingiva, among other issues. We will also clean teeth very carefully to get rid of any plaque or tartar deposits, which in turn may cause cavities or gum disease. If we detect any problems, our team will cooperate with you in finding an individual approach to tackle them and maintain your healthy and attractive smile.

Why Should I Receive Regular Teeth Cleanings?

Routine teeth cleaning is essential to good oral  health. A dental hygienist, while doing a cleaning process, removes the plaque and tartar accumulations in your teeth and gums, which can cause tooth decay and periodontal disease if not cleaned. Moreover, frequent cleanings can help you avoid bad breath and make your teeth look better.
An appointment for a dental cleaning should be made twice in one year to ensure good oral health. But if you suffer from any gum diseases or other oral health problems, your dentist will recommend frequent cleaning.
At Gorgeous Smiles Dental in Farmington, CT, we offer dental cleanings by experienced dentists to ensure your teeth are kept as clean and healthy as possible.

How Does Gum Disease Develop?

Regular visits to your dentist for professional  teeth cleanings and good oral hygiene habits can prevent gum disease. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that develops on teeth after eating and drinking but can be removed with regular brushing and flossing. It can be soft if removed on time but turns into calculus when left, and this is a hard substance that eats away teeth enamel, thereby initiating the process of tooth decay. Cleanings by professionals can help remove calculus, which cannot be removed at home.
Gingivitis symptoms include red, inflamed gums that are painful when brushing and flossing. If left untreated, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, a serious gum disease that may take one’s teeth if not addressed by dental professionals. By regular dental exams, cleanings, and preventive treatments at Gorgeous Smiles Dental in Farmington Ct our team of dentists will work tirelessly to ensure you continue enjoying good oral health.

What are some solutions to combat bad breath?

Bad breath or halitosis can be awkward and negatively affect your confidence. Fortunately, there are ways to address this problem. Here are some tips:

  • Practice good oral hygiene: Brush teeth twice daily and floss every night to remove food debris and plaque that can cause bad breath.
  • Use mouthwash: Mouthwash can eliminate some bacteria and make your breath fresher. Seek for a mouthwash that has antimicrobial properties.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking water all day can help keep your mouth moist and flush away food particles potentially causing bad breath.
  • Chew sugar-free gum: Chewing gum leads to saliva production, which is helpful in cleaning all the food debris and bacteria.
  • Avoid certain foods and drinks: Bad breath could be caused by garlic and onions. In addition, coffee, alcohol, or sugary drinks can cause your mouth to dry and lead to bad breath.

If you have practiced good oral hygiene and made lifestyle changes, yet your bad breath is persistent, then visiting a dentist is advisable. At Gorgeous Smiles Dental in Farmington, we can locate the underlying cause of your bad breath and suggest a course of treatment.

What is the Importance of Undergoing an Oral Cancer Examination?

Oral cancer is a critical condition that targets the mouth, lips, tongue, throat, and salivary glands. It is usually curable if diagnosed at an early stage. An oral cancer inspection is another very important aspect of a dental checkup. The dentist will look into the mouth and its surroundings for tissue changes such as red or white patches and sores, which do not heal, or lumps.
The test is brief and painless; it could save a life. Early detection of oral cancer can be treated less invasively and has a much better chance of a successful outcome. The American Cancer Society recommends that adults undergo oral cancer screening annually.
Gorgeous Smiles Dental in Farmington, CT, is led by a team of dental professionals committed to offering our patients all-encompassing oral health care, including screening for oral cancer. We aim to detect any potential issues early so we can come up with timely treatment and support. Contact us today if you have been overdue for an oral cancer examination or are concerned about your dental health.
