5 Dental Hygiene and Tooth Care Services that Dentists Offer

It’s fairly common these days to develop oral issues like tooth decay or bleeding gums. And it happens much more to people who have not visited a dentist even once in their lives. People usually end up overlooking this because they think that a dentist is needed only if they develop a problem. However, the truth is actually the opposite. Having a dental checkup every few weeks can actually keep you safe from many problems. Having said that, today we will be taking you through 5 dental hygiene and tooth care services provided by elite dental clinics like Oracare

Let’s begin with the Dental Hygiene Services

  1. Complete Dental Examination with Cleaning

This is one wonderful service that is offered by an Oracare emergency dentist

Doctors recommend this service once in every 6 months. It’s carried out in 2 stages. 

Stage 1:

  • Checking previous dental reports 
  • Dental X-ray 
  • Physically examining the neck and nearby areas to identify if there’s any abnormal growth
  • Jaw evaluation 

So, stage 1 is actually the check up and identification stage. 

Now comes stage 2. Depending upon the results, dentists offer the following services.

  • Crown and bridge restoration 
  • Tooth alignment 
  • Cavity filling 
  1. Oral Cancer Screening

A Dentist will examine your mouth once in every 6 months and use different X-ray techniques and a combination of physical checkup to identify any sign or symptom that might be indicating oral cancer. This is, in fact, one of the best services provided at Oracare since early detection of cancer increases the survival rate of the patient. 

Now, let’s talk about 3 tooth care services that dentists offer. 

  1. Tooth Filling

Cavities are very common. You can get them even if you follow the basic oral care routine – brushing and flossing. It’s basically bad food habits that cause cavities. Dentists use fillers to seal the cavities that, in turn, reduces sensitivity and pain. 

  1. Root Canal

Root canal treatment involves the removal of decayed tooth pulp and filling it with a rubber-like filling. It’s an essential service for decaying tooth/teeth that if not treated will develop serious infection and inflammation over time. So, getting it is done is the best way to deal with it.

  1. Plaque and Tartar Removal

It’s necessary that your teeth are plaque free. When plaque keeps building up, it eventually becomes tartar and tartar cannot be removed by flossing. A dentist will use specific tools to remove the accumulated tartar and then offer polishing services to remove yellowing.

All in all, all the services listed above are some of the best dental maintenance habits.
