How Our Toothbrush is Different from What You Use at Home
Posted on 11/16/2020 by Northstar Dental
Although your toothbrush does a good job of removing plague and food on the surface of your teeth, it does not provide the deep cleaning capabilities of the toothbrush that we use in our office. Just like professional construction equipment is different than what you can get at your local hardware store, the type of dental tools, including toothbrushes, will be different than the ones we use in our office. We encourage you to please read on to discover how our toothbrush differs from yours and why you will benefit from coming into our office for a cleaning.
Types of Toothbrushes
The toothbrush that you have at home is probably either a manual or simple rotating brush; while these are great for taking care of the basics, such as plaque and light stains, they lack the ability to quickly and extensively remove tough plaque and plaque from hard to reach places. Our brush, and our brushing methods, ensure that the entire surface area of your teeth and gums are pristine; your teeth will be free of plaque and tarter, even under your gumline, leaving them ready for you to maintain at home with your brush until your next appointment.
Benefits of a Dental Appointment
It is important to remember that, in addition to the optimal brushing experience, you are also getting benefits that cannot be had at home. Excellent flossing, fluoride treatments, and an expert inspection of your oral health are just a few of the services that could end-up saving you from severe dental procedures and costs in the future. You can schedule an appointment with us by calling our office; we are looking forward to providing you with the services that you need to keep your teeth healthy and white.
