The Perks of Dental Cleanings
One of the biggest misconceptions about oral health is if you brush and floss your teeth every day, you’ll be spared from tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. While oral hygiene practices help keep plaque buildup to a minimum, your home oral care routine is not always enough. Professional teeth cleaning in Miami is a must to keep your smile beautiful and your mouth healthy.
If you haven’t had your teeth cleaned by a dentist in the last six months, today is a good day to start.
What Makes Dental Cleanings Different?
Teeth Cleaning at The Clinic is More Thorough
Although your toothbrush and dental floss can remove plaque, bacteria, and food debris they can only do so much. The cleaning you do at home is only superficial compared to the meticulous cleaning done at the clinic.
Toothbrush bristles and floss cannot reach the tiny spaces in between your teeth. It’s also difficult to floss your back molars. These areas are prone to plaque and tartar accumulation. In professional teeth cleaning, dentists use special instruments to remove plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas.
Dental Cleanings Protect You Against Gum Disease
When plaque isn’t efficiently removed, it will calcify and turn into tartar. When tartar builds up around your gum tissues it will cause gum irritation, inflammation, and infection. Without treatment, this can result in bone degradation.
As your gum tissues continue to weaken, the infection will also continue to spread eventually leading to tooth loss. You can prevent plaque from turning into tartar and wreaking havoc in your mouth by having your teeth cleaned at least once every six months at the clinic.
