From a young age we are taught the importance of keeping our teeth clean. However, many people are not aware of the important role that proper oral health plays in maintaining their overall health. Dental hygiene should be taken very seriously.
You can make some changes at home to promote good dental hygiene in your family. Brushing and flossing are extremely important as both of these habits help to remove plaque as well as food particles that get trapped in your teeth. Dental cleaning, however, involves more than brushing our teeth every day. Even if you brush and floss your teeth properly each day, it might still not be enough to get rid of all the stuck debris and invading bacteria. Did you know that dental plaque starts to harden after a while? Once it has become too hard, you can only have it removed by your dentist or dental hygienist. The dental term for hardened plaque is calculus or tartar.
Tartar and plaque can build up in your mouth if you don’t get regular dental cleanings and it can leave stains or cause discoloration of your teeth. You may also be at a greater risk for developing tooth decay. In other words, with the build-up of plaque and tartar, you may be left with serious dental issues. And as you know, yellow teeth can severely influence the esthetics of your smile. Dental cleanings help to remove unsightly stains and provide you with a healthier looking smile!
Plaque, tartar, yellowing and stains are taken care of during your dental cleaning to ensure that you have the healthiest, most vibrant smile possible. Your dentist or dental hygienist will use specialized equipment to help you get rid of plaque build-up for good.
Bad breath is sign of possible periodontal disease, because gum infections tend to cause mouth odor. Repeat dental cleanings can help to eliminate bad breath. A professional cleaning is an effective way to prevent dental issues and maintain dental health. Go ahead and book your next routine cleaning.
At Markham Smile Centre our advice is that you get frequent dental cleanings. It is very important to remember that the number of dental cleanings you need per year will depend on your specific situation and the condition of your dental health.
It is a good idea to keep getting regular dental cleanings to avoid future dental issues altogether.
