We all know how important it is to have a beautiful smile. While the best oral hygiene and dental care begin at home with good habits such as flossing and brushing, routine dental cleanings also play an important role in taking care of your teeth and keeping your gums as healthy as possible.
Brushing and flossing aren’t enough to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
Most people know that it’s important to floss and brush daily, but when it comes to visiting the dentist, we tend to be reactive instead of proactive. In other words, most wait to go to the dentist when something is wrong.
People are busier than ever but making time for oral care is essential if you want healthy teeth and gums. Besides the fact that you will have a more beautiful smile, dental problems can play a significant role in your health.
Here are a few things that may happen when you don’t schedule regular dental cleanings.
When you visit our office for a routine dental cleaning, we will do a visual examination and inspection. At this time, the team will note any problem areas that need to be more closely inspected by your dentist.
During the cleaning, the hygienist will remove tartar and plaque from your teeth using a scaler tool. Once your teeth are clean, the team will polish your teeth with a high-powered device.
