Regular Dental Hygiene Visits

The Importance of Hygiene Visits

An important motivation to visit your dentist should be to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. Plaque and tartar accumulate on teeth over time, wreaking havoc. Plaque is sticky. But normally, regular brushing can eradicate the bulk of it. The concern is for leftover plaque, which solidifies into tartar. This falls outside the scope of your standard toothbrush and floss in terms of removal. Tartar amasses below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth, triggering the growth of bacteria that produce gum disease. Modern research indicates a definite link between untreated gum disease and other life-threatening conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. If you don't remove plaque, you're taking a serious risk with your continued well-being. Having your teeth cleaned routinely is one of the easiest things you can do to stay healthy!
