An Ounce of Prevention: The Importance of Regular Dental Cleaning

When was the last time that you had a professional dental cleaning? This is one of the best ways to protect the health of your teeth and gums. Experts now recommend that for some people, these appointments should occur more frequently than once every six months. Here are the primary reasons why:

  • These cleanings can effectively remove plaque and bacteria, more than regular brushing and flossing. Some people tend to have more buildup than others, so require more cleanings.
  • Dentists can detect oral problems at a much earlier stage.
  • If an issue is found, it can be treated in a timely fashion.

“By giving your dentist a chance to check for these and other potential problems, you help protect your smile for life!”
