Routine cleanings and hygiene appointments are the best way to ensure strong long-term oral health, and prevent serious dental concerns in the future. Regular cleanings with your dentist provide the following benefits:
- The Removal of Harmful Plaque
Tartar (calculus) and plaque, whether it’s below or above the gemlike, should be routinely removed both at home and in the dental office for the best prevention of long-term oral health concerns. At home, brush and floss regularly to remove plaque from the surface of your teeth. Also, see your dentist routinely to have plaque and tartar professionally removed.
- A Healthier Smile Overall
Regular hygiene appointments can help to brighten your smile by removing harmful plaque and stain-causing bacteria. In addition to creating a more aesthetically-pleasing smile, this also makes for a healthier smile overall by helping to prevent long-term dental complications.
- Maintaining Fresh Breath
One of the first signs of periodontal disease (or gum disease) is bad breath - the result of left over food particles and bacteria forming in the mouth. Regular hygiene appointment’s with your dentist helps to remove these particles and help promote fresh breath and overall strong oral health.
