Cleaning and Prevention

Welcome to ARCH DENTAL CARE

Cleaning & Prevention

Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your hygienist and Dr. Khan helps you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.

A regular home prevention routine usually consists of brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your mouth a little easier? Depending on your needs, there are special kinds of toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help you keep your smile bright and healthy for years to come. Arch Dental Care can help you find the best tools to enhance your daily hygiene routine making your professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.

Another significant factor in your oral health is your diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.

Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

At each visit, our team does a medical history update and reviews any changes (even subtle ones). Even the smallest change in the soft tissues of your mouth will be examined closely. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives each year, and our team is highly trained to detect even the smallest abnormality.

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. But it doesn’t have to ruin your smile. A targeted, strategic cleaning schedule and a dedicated home care regimen can help keep this chronic condition under control.

Home Care

Maintaining a healthy smile depends on what happens between your visits with us. Good home care habits can be established by anyone committed to carving out a few minutes each day. Like regular exercise, consistency is the key to building a healthy habit. Brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and flossing once a day are the standard for ideal home care.

With so many products on the market today, it can be confusing to sort it out alone. Your hygienist can help you narrow down the endless options and form a a home care plan that fits your personal needs. Will an electric toothbrush help you keep your mouth cleaner between professional visits? Based on your unique chemistry, would a prescription toothpaste help reduce plaque? Many factors fit into a plan to maximize the time and effort you put into keeping your smile healthy.

Some patients considered high-risk for dental problems benefit from even more customized routines. Simple, inexpensive substitutions can dramatically reduce the risk and symptoms of periodontal disease. For example, Xylitol, when used in the right dosages, can minimize cavities in children and adults.
