With a lovely smile comes great dental health—and the attentive dental hygiene routine it requires. Excellent oral hygiene is more than keeping up healthy brushing and flossing habits. Even if you brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily, dental plaque and bacteria can still gradually build up on your teeth. With regular dental cleanings and exams every six months, you can keep your pearly whites squeaky clean and in great shape. It also works as a natural teeth whitening by removing the hardened film of plaque yellowing your smile.
At Dentist Tree of Fairfield, our dentists dedicate themselves to your complete oral health, taking a comprehensive approach that keeps your smile shining for decades. We believe that the best way to treat a tooth cavity or gum disease is to prevent them from developing in the first place. Our practice is equipped with the latest cleaning and exam technologies, from intraoral photos, scanners, and laser teeth cleaning to digital X-rays and 3D imaging.

Tartar and dental plaque aren’t content just to stick to the visible parts of your teeth that a toothbrush can reach. They can spread below the gums, especially if you’ve fallen back on your daily flossing routine. In just a few days, they can irritate and inflame the soft tissues enough to cause gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease. While excellent brushing and flossing habits can help reverse gingivitis, they’re not enough once later gum disease stages appear. Deep gum pockets appear, gums and jawbone shrink, and teeth eventually become loose enough to fall out. To prevent these worst-case scenarios, you may need a deep cleaning.
Your dental hygienist doesn’t stick to the visible tooth when clearing hardened plaque and tartar with a deep cleaning. Instead, we go further down to remove everything trapped on your teeth’s roots below the gums. With the buildup gone and the gums able to breathe again, the soft tissues can reattach to the teeth and quickly return to a healthy pink. While we go deeper than a standard dental cleaning, our team makes sure to be just as gentle to ensure your treatment is comfortable and stress-free. Depending on the level of buildup, you may need multiple visits to ensure your smile is plaque-free.
Using the top dental technology, our keen-eyed dentists will perform a comprehensive and detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw to ensure your smile is in excellent health.
Our hygienists thoroughly scrape away bacteria and plaque buildup on the teeth, leaving your smile polished smooth. Deep cleanings go further to scale tartar stuck under the gums.
Brushing only sticks to the visible parts of your teeth. Be sure to floss daily to reach below the gums and clear everything trapped there. Flossing helps stop gum diseases and cavities, preventing fillings, crowns, root canals, and even tooth extraction.
