Health and beauty are often closely tied together. In the case of regular teeth cleaning, both can be improved by getting your teeth cleaned.
Getting Your Teeth Cleaned:
Even for those of us that do floss daily, and many don’t, a cleaning at the dentist office every 6 months is recommended because it will remove the remaining, difficult to remove plaque and tartar buildup. The goal of these cleanings is to prevent dental diseases and cavities. Also, the cleaning will result in teeth that both look and feel nice and smooth and clean!
What Happens During a Dental Cleaning:
During the cleaning, the dentist will check your teeth and gums and may offer services or suggest follow up treatments and offer information. Even minor things like brushing too hard can cause problems like gum irritation; your dentist or hygienist can often catch this and offer instruction on proper brushing. X-rays may be taken, fluoride treatment, discussions around stain removal or teeth whitening or referrals to any specialists needed can all occur during a teeth cleaning. All of these surrounding services are also of great importance.
So, not only does regular teeth cleaning help to keep your teeth beautiful and clean and also aid in disease and cavity prevention, but many more valuable services and information may be offered during the cleaning appointment.
