By taking preventative steps to keep your mouth and teeth clean, you can enjoy optimal oral health for a lifetime.

The Importance of Biyearly Checkups

Not only can neglecting your mouth affect your oral health but your overall health as well. That’s why it’s essential to come in for checkups twice a year. If teeth aren’t cared for calcified plaque and tartar buildup can cause gingivitis (gum inflammation) or worse— periodontal (gum) disease, which often results in tooth and bone loss.

During your scale and clean visits, your teeth will be evaluated and thoroughly cleaned by one of our dentists. Your dentist will gently remove calcified plaque and tartar buildup that has collected along the teeth and gums.

Like most other self-care regimens, consistency is critical in helping you achieve optimum results. After all, you don’t just work out once at the gym and expect to have a fit, healthy body. The same is the case with home dental care.

Adopt Good Home Care Habits

A dedicated home care routine is essential to keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. That’s why we recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time as well as flossing once a day. Flossing is the best way to clean the hard-to-reach areas between the teeth and below the gumlines.

It’s essential to remember, however, that regardless of how dedicated you are to caring for your teeth at home, buildup is inevitable and needs to be addressed with a professional scale and clean.
