The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health. That’s why we at Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI take routine teeth cleanings seriously, no matter how simple of a procedure it may seem.
The AGD strongly recommends that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning every six months. Our professional teeth cleaning at Bowtie Dental reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives Dr. Langellier an opportunity to locate areas in your mouth that may need special attention.
People who regularly practice good oral hygiene at home with proper brushing and flossing techniques typically do not experience discomfort during a cleaning; however, those who have neglected their oral hygiene habits may experience some discomfort or sensitivity during a dental cleaning. Dr. Langellier can use a topical anesthetic before the cleaning to alleviate any discomfort. He and our staff will also give you tips to make sure your next visit is even better!
