There is an ongoing battle going on inside your mouth. It’s you against the plaque and the bacteria. To prevent build-up on your teeth, a person must schedule regular cleanings at their dentist. This is a necessity for excellent oral hygiene. Teeth cleanings are the proactive approach to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Brushing is an excellent way to keep the build-up at bay, but eventually, there will be tartar, and tartar must be removed by your dentist.
Professional teeth cleaning involves removing the tartar, a.k.a. mineralized plaque, tooth scaling, tooth polishing, and debridement if too much tartar has accumulated. To ensure healthy oral hygiene the procedure is performed every six months.
Routine examination of the teeth is recommended at least once a year. This may include dental x-rays as well. If you have any questions, please call (308) 995-5331 to schedule your personal appointment and remember in the meantime… keep brushing and flossing those teeth.
