Why Should I Clean My Teeth?
Along with daily brushing and flossing, regular cleaning is one of the easiest ways to care for your oral health. It’s also the most important.
Having clean, healthy teeth and gums does more for you than enhance your smile. It can help to prevent cavities and gum disease, as well as more serious conditions than can affect your overall health.
Between professional cleanings, plaque and tartar (mineralized plaque that is harder than bone) build up on your teeth, especially at the gum line. If not removed, these deposits encourage the growth of harmful bacteria that can cause gum disease and ultimately may lead to bone loss. Periodontal disease is the main cause of tooth loss in adults.
Regular cleaning by your dentist or hygienist removes plaque and tartar. We also gently polish your teeth, leaving you with a clean, healthy feeling, a brighter smile, and healthier teeth and gums.
