The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings
- Posted on: Mar 30 2015
While brushing and flossing your teeth at home are incredibly important preventative activities – neither takes the place of a professional dental cleaning and examination.
It is recommended that all dental patients, both children and adults, receive dental cleanings and examinations twice a year. These visits ensure that built-up plaque is removed from your teeth regularly – plaque that is too tough to remove with a manual, home toothbrush. If you are nervous about professional teeth cleaning, rest assured that our office staff is committed to making your visit as relaxing as possible.
By avoiding routine dental cleanings, you put your mouth at greater risk for conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. When you skip a professional cleaning and examination, you may unintentionally allow tooth decay to grow, which can lead to costly and sometimes painful restorations down the road, including fillings, root canals and even extractions.
