Brushing and flossing are vital to good dental health, but regular professional cleaning is necessary to give you complete protection against tooth decay and gum disease. Over time, tartar forms on your teeth and begins to irritate your gums. If it isn’t removed, the irritate can weaken your gums and leave you vulnerable to gum disease. Dental restorations like fillings and crowns wear out over time, and it's always best to catch these early to treatment can be simpler.
By making regular cleaning and dental exams part of your preventative dentistry plan you can ensure that your teeth are properly cleaned and that early signs of decay and damage are caught and remedied before they become serious.
