The Importance of Regular Dental Visits
If you’re dedicated to brushing your teeth twice per day, flossing, and using mouthwash, do you still need to have regular cleanings at the dentist’s office? Yes, and here’s why.
It’s a challenge to brush perfectly every time. Plaque builds up in those hard-to-reach places between your teeth or at the back of your mouth. Your dental hygienist can remove the plaque from those tricky spots before it hardens into tartar, which is far more difficult to remove. Get your teeth professionally cleaned every six months to prevent plaque and tartar buildup.
Your regular visits are also an important opportunity to catch problems early. It’s not just limited to cavities or gum disease; the state of your mouth may serve as an early warning for diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer!
