The best way to ensure a lifetime of good dental health is to take proper care of your teeth. Brush your teeth after every meal, floss once a day to keep your teeth free from plaque, and see a dentist at least once a year for a professional cleaning and hygiene appointment. At Pierce Street Dental we believe in the importance of preventative dentistry to your overall good health, and we provide oral hygiene services to Birmingham-Beverly Hills families.
When you come in for a hygiene appointment our hygienist will begin by removing plaque and tartar from your teeth in a process called scaling. This prevents infections that can lead to dangerous gum disease.
After the scaling the hygienist will polish the surface of your teeth to remove stains. Then your dentist will examine your mouth and teeth for signs of oral cancer, disease, and tooth decay.
