Pearl isn’t just a cosmetic dentist?
We do general dentistry too!
When you make the best choice for your dental health and choose Pearl, our first step is to give your teeth a thorough, routine cleaning. Our hygienists start by scraping off the buildup of plaque and tartar that collects above and below the gum line before flossing between and around every tooth to remove any plaque or food particles that are clinging on.
We will also give your teeth a smooth and shiny finish using a tooth polisher with a spinning head and a slightly abrasive paste. The polishing will get rid of any residue that was previously missed and will make sure your teeth are smoother so that plaque will not collect as easily on them between visits to the dentist.
We recommend teeth cleanings every six months. Professional dental cleanings are one of the simplest measures to prevent the buildup of plaque, helping you maintain and benefit from a lifetime of great oral health.
Here a few more tips we recommend to keep those PEARLy whites as healthy as they can be:
- Practice good oral hygiene at home! Brush your teeth thoroughly (2 minutes, twice a day) and floss once a day.
- Brush with fluoride toothpaste! Yes, fluoride is important for adults too… studies have shown topical fluoride applications performed by dental professionals can create significant benefits for adults!
- Visit Pearl. Dentistry Reimagined, your uptown Charlotte dentist, on a regular basis!
The most important step of the routine dental cleaning is scheduling your next one! Scheduling your next cleaning right away is the best way to ensure that you don’t forget about your routine teeth cleaning. Even if you are diligent in your personal oral care, there is no better protection against dental issues than having regular professional teeth cleanings!
