If you make time each morning and evening to brush and floss your teeth, you may wonder why you need to pile onto your busy schedule professional cleaningswith dental checkups with Dr. Todd Armstrong. But by making time to visit your Kenosha, WI dentist twice a year for a cleaning, you're not only enhancing the diligent work you're doing at home, you're also preventing major problems from developing. Dr. Armstrong goes into more detail below.

Why are professional cleanings so important?

Simply put, dental professionals know what they're doing! Our assistants, hygienists, and dentist here in Kenosha are experts at their jobs; diagnosing and treating dental issues is what we do all day, every day. For example, plaque - the sticky, bacteria-filled film that develops on teeth - turns into tartar in a very short amount of time and can wreak havoc on not only your enamel but your gums as well. Unfortunately, even the most high-tech toothbrush can't remove tartar at home, but our hygienists use professional-grade tools and techniques to clear the tartar away. We also routinely take X-rays that can help Dr. Armstrong identify decay or gum disease that is developing between the teeth; otherwise, it might go untreated until it becomes painful or difficult to manage. It's skills and procedures like this that make visiting your dentist twice a year worth your time!

What happens at a professional cleaning?

If it's been a while since you visited your Kenosha dentist, you might not remember how a typical appointment goes. After checking in with our friendly front desk staff, you'll be taken to the exam area, where one of our hygienists will begin the process of cleaning and polishing your teeth. You may have X-rays taken first; this depends on when they were taken last. After your cleaning, Dr. Armstrong will come in to examine your teeth and discuss any upcoming procedures you may need.
