Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleaning


The most important factor in maintaining a healthy, vibrant smile over the course of your life is a good dental hygiene routine that includes brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing, and visiting the Pittsburgh dentists at Dentonics once every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning.

Allison Park general dentists, Dr. Joe Quartuccio and Dr. Charles Frye conduct thorough teeth cleanings and examinations to detect potential issues before they become oral health problems and to ensure you maintain an appealing, healthy smile. We emphasize preventive dental care, and we believe the most important aspect of your check-ups is what you take home with you to help you establish or continue a quality dental hygiene regimen.

At-Home Dental Care

The basis of a good oral health routine is at-home care that includes brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. It’s important to remember to brush your gums as well; your periodontal health has a direct impact on your overall systemic health.

Flossing after your brush can help remove food particles that become trapped in hard-to-reach spaces between your teeth. Following brushing and flossing, you may wish to rinse with an anticavity or antiseptic mouthwash to further remove food particles, kill bacteria and freshen your breath.

Professional Dental Care

Even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque will continue to accumulate on your teeth. Professional teeth cleanings conducted as part of your twice yearly dental visits ensure your teeth are as free of plaque and tartar as possible.

During these check-ups, we will also conduct a thorough examination that includes a periodontal assessment. This enables us to diagnose and treat potential problems at an early stage, and allows an opportunity to discuss any questions you may have.
