ANOTHER TEETH CLEANING?
While some see this procedure as a nuisance and can’t stand the thought of someone cleaning their teeth for them, this important procedure is essential to not only your oral health, but it is also essential to your overall health.
The mouth is often viewed as separate to one’s overall health and is often overlooked in discussions of being healthy. However, the maintenance of oral hygiene and oral health is an essential part of living a healthy life.

Why you need your teeth cleaned professionally
While daily brushing and flossing removes plaque, it is not effective at removing all of the plaque from your teeth. If plaque sits on your teeth long enough, it will build up and harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist or dental hygienist. If this build-up is allowed to accumulate, it can lead to periodontal disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss.
Not only does your biannual teeth cleaning help keep your teeth free of plaque and tartar, but your dentist will also be able to spot the earliest signs of gingivitis and tooth decay. Catching tooth decay before it starts and gingivitis before it advances are essential in treating them effectively.
