Regular cleanings play an essential role towards maintaining optimal oral health. Our practice offers dental cleanings and checkups in SE Calgary to ensure your teeth are clean and healthy.
Why Are Dental Cleanings Necessary?
Plaque accumulates on your teeth after each time you eat or drink. After a day, the plaque hardens into tartar, which then can no longer be removed with at-home brushing. As plaque and tartar accumulate on your teeth, they can cause oral infections and lead to gum disease. Tooth decay can occur when the plaque continues to accumulate on and around your tooth. As time goes by, if it’s left untreated, the cavity can make its way into the nerves and roots of your tooth. By attending regular cleanings and checkups, you can ensure your teeth are cavity-free, and your gums are healthy.
Typically, it’s recommended to visit your dentist at least once every six months. These regular dental cleanings near you will help ensure your teeth are plaque-free and healthy. This also gives your dentist an opportunity to check your mouth and detect any abnormalities in the early stages. The earlier oral health problems are detected and treated, the less likely they will be to develop into a more serious problem.
