Why are regular dental check ups important?
Brushing and flossing on a daily basis helps to remove the increase of tartar and food trapping. In order to decrease the possibility of the formation of decay and periodontal disease, professional scaling and root planning are essential.
Regular visits to see a Dental Hygienist are important to maintaining the best possible oral health, and keeping your teeth and gums in the pink.
Your dental cleaning actually includes many important services in addition to the scaling and polishing of your teeth to remove tartar and stains. During this appointment your Dentist also performs a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth. This exam not only involves checking your teeth for decay, but also provides screening for other serious conditions including periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, bruxisim (tooth grinding), and the weakening of old crowns, bridges and fillings.
