Teeth Cleanings in Eagle, CO
Regularly scheduled professional cleanings by our Eagle, CO hygienists are critical to maintaining a healthy mouth and beautiful smile, as well as contribute to your overall health. The American Diabetes Association and the American Heart Association advocate taking good care of your teeth and gums to reduce your risk of developing these serious diseases. To get your teeth their cleanest and healthiest, the dental hygienists at Castle Peak Dental use the Cavitron ultrasonic cleaning device.
How does Cavitron work?
Cavitron contains high frequency sound waves that remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. It has a built-in water spray that flushes away any remaining debris. The tool allows our hygienists to clean your teeth faster and more thoroughly than manual instruments. Additionally, you experience little pain or discomfort during the cleaning.
Our goals for your routine cleaning exam in Eagle, CO
During your cleaning appointment, the hygienist will examine your mouth and perform the following procedures:
- Remove plaque. Plaque is a sticky film containing bacteria that attack tooth enamel and eventually cause cavities. The bacteria also produce toxins that inflame the gums, leading to periodontal disease.
- Remove tartar. Plaque left on teeth over time hardens and becomes calculus (tartar). It can only be removed with dental tools. Tartar can cause gums to bleed, leading to periodontal disease.
- Polish teeth. After cleaning your teeth with Cavitron and any additional dental tools needed, the last step is to polish them. This final step removes minor stains and any remaining plaque, making teeth their whitest and brightest!
Cleaning twice a year keeps the plaque away
Some patients may need to schedule an additional appointment for deep teeth cleaning if our hygienists cannot complete it all in one appointment. However, most people only need to visit us every six months for a cleaning appointment.
