Regular preventative dentistry is vital for preventing oral health issues and detecting existing health problems before painful or otherwise unpleasant symptoms like bleeding gums or bad breath develop. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular checkups twice a year, and this should include having a cleaning preformed. Regular dental cleaning can remove potentially harmful plaque and tartar buildup, but that is just one benefit cleanings offer.
We advocate teeth cleaning on a regular basis not only for your oral health, but for your appearance as well. Cleaning can remove light surface stains, including those caused by coffee, tea, or red wine, and with these discolorations diminished, you will have one more thing to smile about. Smiling more often will even help your self-esteem and mood as well.
We recommend brushing your teeth and tongue twice daily, and you should also floss every time you brush. By taking care of your teeth at home in addition to visiting us twice a year for a cleaning and exam, you are helping to ensure the health of your teeth for years to come.
