Home dental care is extremely important, including brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing on a regular basis. But since your adult teeth are tremendously susceptible to decay and damaged, and it is the only (natural) set you are going to get in your lifetime, professional cleaning boosts their overall health and longevity. A twice-yearly routine of having a Dental Hygienist clean your teeth will help fight off plaque acid and bacteria which are constantly attacking your teeth. These regular visits also help patients with their hard to remove tartar, easily bleeding gums and reoccurring bad breath. Taking a couple of hours a year, to stop in and see us, can protect your smile from erosion and even tooth loss, which can occur if periodontal disease persists and is left untreated. We want you to SMILE for a long time!
