Teeth cleanings near Potsdam

Dental care is comprised of two critical aspects; a strict and thorough home care regimen of twice daily brushing and flossing combined with the professional course of therapy which includes regular dental examinations and professional cleanings. In addition to ensuring your naturally beautiful smile always looks its best, keeping your teeth and gums free of debris is your first line of defense against not only cavities and tooth decay, but periodontal disease as well. However, as efficient and dedicated as you may be to your oral care routine at home, it simply must be followed up and supported by visits to your Potsdam dentist and hygienist at Zysik Dental for full effectiveness.


One of the primary reasons a professional teeth cleaning, or prophylaxis is highly effective is due to your professional hygienist ability to reach every nook and cranny of each tooth from all angles. You may be extremely proficient at both brushing and flossing, but it is still exceedingly difficult to touch 100% of your tooth’s surface area. Additionally, the tools of your hygienist at Zysik Dental have been clinically proven to be vastly effective at removing debris, plaque and tartar from teeth. Upon completion of your thorough teeth cleaning, your teeth will appear brighter with a glossier finish, and your gums should be pink and healthy looking. Maintaining this routine will allow your office visit with our Potsdam dentist to be relatively quick as your teeth and gums are typically healthier than patients who skimp on their oral hygiene practices.


While being able to flash a beautiful and healthy smile has its own benefits, maintaining the health of your teeth and gums by having regular professional teeth cleanings also ensures you will dramatically reduce your risk of losing teeth as a result of periodontal disease. Gingivitis is one of the easier gum diseases to treat, yet the most common cause for adult tooth loss. Safeguard both your natural teeth and gums by maintaining regular visits with your Potsdam dentist and professional hygienist at Zysik Dental. We look forward to meeting with you soon to provide you with professional and compassionate dental services to preserve and maintain your smile.
