Ultrasonic Teeth Cleanings

Why just get a teeth cleaning when you could get an Ultrasonic Cleaning? Our dental lifestyle plans include regular cleanings every six months. Regular preventive cleanings are the easiest way to prevent decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems.

The Ultrasonic Experience

While regular brushing and flossing at home are a crucial step in your oral hygiene routine, a professional deep clean is necessary to remove the plaque and tartar build-up that brushing and flossing alone cannot. Our hygienists are trained and skilled using ultrasonic scalers to remove stubborn plaque and tartar build-up in those nooks, crannies, and hard-to-reach places between teeth, and around and under the gums.

Our Professional Advice

At BLU Dental, we understand that brushing is a pain, and flossing can be easy to “forget”. However, if you could peer into our looking glass and get a glimpse of your future if you continue slacking off on your oral hygiene routine, you may reconsider. A solid oral homecare routine is your best line of defense in preventing oral disease and decay. Here’s our advice:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice per day. Once in the morning after breakfast, once at night before bed, and ideally after each meal, snack, or sugary beverage. We recommend an electric toothbrush (Sonicare® is our favorite) for the most effective cleaning power.

  • Floss every day. There are many options nowadays, so if traditional string floss is not for you, find another that works (picks, water flossers, etc.). Brushing alone cannot remove plaque between teeth and under the gums. We recommend flossing before you brush every night.

  • Use mouthwash. While brushing and flossing are the big ones, rinsing with mouthwash can remove the germs and bacteria that brushing and flossing cannot, and boost your oral health from an A to an A+.

  • Rinse with water. When brushing and flossing is not an option, be sure to rinse with water after eating or enjoying sugary beverages. This will greatly reduce your risk for decay and staining.

  • Give it time. While we agree you should brush after eating or drinking, modern research suggests that brushing immediately after eating something sugary or acidic may actually be harmful to your teeth. We recommend rinsing with water first and waiting for a bit before brushing.

  • Eat healthy. Eating a healthy, balanced diet is one of the best things you can do for your oral health. Foods and drinks high in sugar or carbohydrates, or that are highly acidic will cause the most harm to your teeth.
