Why Teeth Cleanings Are Included In General Dental Exams

You should feel confident that your approach to brushing and flossing your teeth will keep you safe from problems with tartar buildup, cavity formation, and gingivitis. Even if you take pride in your approach to oral hygiene on a daily basis, you can still benefit from a professional teeth cleaning! During this service, your smile is carefully checked for any tartar buildup that may have occurred so that deposits can be removed. This is important, as the accumulation of tartar is not something that you can deal with through brushing and flossing alone. Sunny Smiles is prepared to help patients of all ages prevent problems with their oral health during dental exams, just as we are prepared to step in and offer restorative dental work if issues are identified during a checkup.

Why People Need Help Fighting Tartar Buildup

Even with good daily habits in place, you may find it difficult to completely stop tartar deposits from forming. Unfortunately, when tartar buildup occurs, there will not be a way to remove what has accumulated on your own. Until this substance is removed, it can cause you to experience problems with gum disease as well as tooth decay.

How Often Should You Go In For Routine Dental Care?

To effectively keep your smile safe from tartar buildup and other concern, make sure you see your dentist for routine care on a semiannual basis. At every appointment, you receive a cleaning as well as a close evaluation to find out if there are any issues that might call for restorative dental work. If a problem does arise in between appointments, it can be caught and treated before there are complications. For example, if a cavity has developed since your last appointment, it can be treated with a dental filling before it grows serious enough to require root canal therapy.

Make Sure You Effectively Fight Plaque And Tartar Formation At Home!

To keep your smile in the best shape possible, you should have a good routine in place to fight tartar formation. Protecting your full smile means taking flossing as well as brushing seriously. Each night, you should work diligently to clean between your teeth and remove any bacteria or food particles that may have formed. You should also be consistent about brushing for at least two minutes to make sure you reach even the most difficult-to-access parts of your smile.
