It's important to see your dentist twice a year for teeth cleaning for your oral and your overall health. Regular teeth cleanings prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar to protect you from tooth decay, gum disease, and keep your smile looking great!
Plaque is sticky bacteria that builds up on the teeth. If it is not removed by regular brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar. Tartar cannot be brushed away and must be removed by a dental professional. When plaque and tartar build up on the teeth, the bacteria can penetrate the enamel layer, causing decay. The bacteria can also irritate the gums and cause gum disease. When you get regular professional cleanings plaque and tartar are removed before they build up and cause problems.
Regularly scheduled appointments at your dentist in Rosamond, West Palmdale, Lancaster, and East Palmdale, CA, are also important so that you have a checkup and oral cancer screening. With an exam, your dentist can tell you if you need to adjust your hygiene routine for any problem areas. You should be brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. If you have a history of cavities, your dentist may recommend adding a fluoride rinse to your routine. When you prioritize preventative care like regular visits, it equates to less time and money spent at the dentist overall.
