Take Care Of Your Teeth And Gums
Having routine teeth cleaning and a checkup is one of the most important steps you can take to preserve your oral health including not just your teeth but your gums and the rest of your mouth-- inside and out. Cleaning removes plaque, tartar and bacteria that cause decay, gum disease and chronic bad breath. A hygienist can get into areas that aren’t easy to reach with routine brushing and flossing at home. Thorough cleaning and exam give the hygienist and dentist the perfect opportunity to monitor your oral health and spot problems that can be resolved or avoided altogether before they become painful and expensive.
