Preventive Dentistry

Cleaning and Oral Hygiene Services at Trenton's Mike the Molar Dental.

Oral health is just as important as the health of the rest of your body. Dental cleaning and checkups will help maintain oral health and prevent dental disease. Untreated dental disease can lead to serious health problems, as infection from tooth disease can sometimes spread to other parts of the body.

Oral healthcare maintenance

Oral health maintenance or preventive dentistry is caring for your teeth to ensure they are always healthy and to avoid problems like gum disease, cavities and other dental issues. Caring for the health of your teeth includes daily brushing and flossing. Remember to replace your toothbrush every three months. Flossing helps to clean the spaces between your teeth. If you are wearing braces, you still need to floss, but you would need threaders to help you get in between the brackets. Flossing daily is recommended for everyone.

Regular Dental cleaning

Dental cleaning and regular plaque removal from the gum area is essential to maintain healthy gums. X-ray examinations are done at the dental health practitioner's discretion to manage cavities and assess treatment plans.

Keeping your teeth clean

The dental hygienist or dentist uses specialized instruments to gently remove harmful deposits without harming your teeth.
