Dental cleaning in Baltimore is one of the methods that our practice recommends to help prevent the spread of dental decay. At Quest Dental, our doctors have developed a preventative program that stresses an active partnership between our practice and each patient in keeping teeth and gums decay-free and healthy.
Dental cleanings in Baltimore are recommended because even the most diligent of patients cannot get rid of all the tartar and plague that builds up along the gumline, between and behind the teeth where problems can develop. Our hygienists will scrape away the trapped plague and tartar buildup as well as polish the teeth to bring back their luster. They will also clean away the plague that has build up along the gums as well as measure any pockets that have developed between the teeth and gums indicating the beginning stages of gum disease. The preventative program starts with our initial examination during which our doctor will discuss your dental history, medical history and your family history, as well as any concerns you have. The examination will look at your teeth, gums, mouth and facial structure and include a digital radiograph examination. This examination serves two purposes, first it allows our doctor to assess the current state of your mouth and teeth and it gives us a baseline against which we can see any future changes. Our practice will conduct follow-up examinations of the patient’s mouth each year to assess the current health of their oral cavity at that time.
