Dental Hygiene – The Most Popular General Dentistry Procedure

Most dentists recommend that your teeth be professionally cleaned at least twice a year, if not more. As such, teeth cleaning is one of the general dentistry procedures that we do the most.
The reason getting your teeth cleaned is so important is because even if you are diligent with brushing your teeth and flossing, oftentimes, plague – food debris, saliva that sticks to your gums and teeth and bacteria – will form in or around your gums, potentially causing very painful, and very expensive, dental diseases down the road. The plague that forms will lead to tooth decay and could also turn into tartar if not removed promptly.

Even though cleanings are considered the “easiest” of all the general dentistry procedures, it is still highly recommended that you do one at least twice a year, if not more.

Wisdom Teeth

For many people, wisdom teeth can either be a very painful experience or a completely painless experience, depending on how early you get them taken care of. What are wisdom teeth? They are the third and final set of molars, an additional 4 teeth to add to the 28 that you already have, thus totaling 32 total teeth. However, the human mouth is designed to only fit 28, which is why wisdom teeth often causes pain and discomfort, thus requiring removal and surgery.

For our Hollywood dental team, we have a great deal of experience treating wisdom teeth that are still in that have become impacted – this is what happens with the wisdom teeth become enclosed within the soft tissue and/or jawbone or if they only somewhat “breakthrough.”

Regardless of whether your wisdom teeth is causing you problems or pain, it is often a good idea to get them removed as early as possible so as to prevent any problems and complications down the road. Of all the different general procedures, wisdom teeth removal is something that you need to make sure you keep on top of, for even if you do not feel any discomfort, it can end up causing a great deal of teeth and gum damage if not properly treated.
