WARREN, MI – Dr. Larry Finn (http://www.dr-finn.com), offers dental cleaning, and urges the public to get regular cleanings because they promote overall health, especially for patients with diabetes or heart disease.
The purpose of getting a dental cleaning is to remove plaque, tarter and stains that have accumulated on the teeth. It is important for all patients, but especially those with diabetes or heart disease, to get a professional dental cleaning every six months. During the appointment, patients can be reminded of proper brushing and flossing techniques in order to maintain a good oral health regimen at home.
During a dental cleaning, you can expect a series of actions to be done. Some depend on the patient and what their current lifestyle habits are. You can expect the following during the dental cleaning:
• Oral cancer examination and scanning
• Evaluation of gum tissue
• Checking of bite, chewing and swallowing patterns
• X-rays of teeth to detect any decay
• Removal of plaque and tartar
• Stain removal
• Fluoride application
• Polishing of the teeth, including fillings and crowns
• Tooth brushing and flossing
• Tobacco counseling
• Nutritional counseling
• Recommendations for future treatment
