Is there a fresher feeling than the way your mouth feels after you’ve received a professional cleaning? At Grand Avenue Dental Studio you will receive a comfortable, efficient, and effective professional cleaning every time. Not only will this cleaning remove surface stains and make your teeth look their best, but also it will remove plaque and hard and soft deposits that can lead to inflammation and infection. The evaluation of the gum tissue, measuring pockets and recording their depths for future reference will also be accomplished. After the cleaning, the hygienist will polish your teeth to a beautiful shine.
You’ll wish you could have that amazingly fresh, clean feeling every day (and we’ll give you tips that will help you keep a fresh smile between cleanings)!
Additionally, you will have all of your questions answered about your home care procedures and products. If you have trouble choosing the right toothbrush, or flossing effectively, your hygienist can help. Should you develop gum disease, which is extremely common; our hygienists will provide counsel and treatment to control the disease and infection.
It will be important for you to work with your dental hygienist so that you can achieve the healthiest mouth possible. This will mean working together through home care or co-therapy to keep your teeth for your lifetime. It is a commitment from you, the patient, to do your best at home and a commitment from your hygienist to provide the best treatment possible during your hygiene appointments. We call this “co-therapy”.

The Relationship between Heart Disease/ Stroke and the Health of your Mouth
Did you know there is a link between your oral health and cardiovascular disease? New research shows that certain people may be predisposed to periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease is the same bacteria associated with heart disease. These bacteria cause plaque and calculus/tartar (soft and hard deposits) around teeth and in arteries. Take time to talk to the Grand Avenue Studio Dental team about the connection between your mouth’s health and your body’s health at your next appointment.
