One important part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums is by having regular teeth cleanings. Professional cleanings remove plaque and calculus (tartar) that can build up over time and cause cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. Both young and adults are susceptible to these dental issues, so it’s important to schedule teeth cleaning regularly.
Calculus is a hardened deposit of dental plaque that can only be removed through professional cleaning. Regular brushing and flossing can help prevent the build-up of calculus, but even the most diligent brushers will eventually need teeth cleaning from their dentist. The frequency with which you’ll need a teeth cleaning depends on many factors including your oral hygiene habits, the natural bacteria in your mouth, and your age. Most people elect to have their teeth cleaned every six months.
Dental hygiene is an important part of overall health, and regular teeth cleanings are an essential for keeping your smile healthy.
