Everyone knows how important it is to keep your teeth clean. Yet still, many people remain unaware of the role that oral health plays in their overall health. Dental hygiene should not be taken lightly.
Proper dental hygiene begins at home. Brushing and flossing are both important for removing plaque and food particles that get stuck in the teeth. However, dental cleaning is about more than just brushing our teeth. Even with the most proper brushing and flossing routines it can still be difficult to remove all the debris and bacteria from your gums and teeth. When dental plaque is left on a tooth for too long, it begins to harden and once it this has happened, it can only be removed by a dentist or dental hygienist. Hardened plaque is known as tartar or calculus.
Without professional cleanings, tartar and plaque builds up on your teeth and this can lead to discoloration or tooth decay. When tartar and plaque builds up below or above your gum line, you can end up having serious dental problems. Moreover, yellowed teeth can make your smile a lot less attractive. Dental cleanings are effective for removing unsightly stains from your teeth so that you can have a healthier looking smile!
During a dental cleaning; plaque, tartar and stains are removed to ensure that your teeth and gums are as healthy as possible. A qualified dentist or dental hygienist uses specialized equipment to take care of any build-up.
Bad breath is a good indication of periodontal disease, as gum infections are known to cause mouth odor. With repeat dental cleanings, bad breath can be significantly improved. Professional dental cleaning is effective as a preventative procedure for maintaining the health of the oral cavity. Your best shot at preventing gum disease is to book routine dental cleanings.
We recommend that you get regular dental cleanings. It is important to remember that while some patients only require a few dental cleanings per year, others may need to have their teeth cleaned professionally more often. The number of cleanings you need to have in a year will depend on the condition of your teeth and oral cavity.
It would be a smart choice to keep having regular dental cleanings to avoid dental problems altogether.
