Midwood teeth cleaning
Keeping gums healthy is an important part of an oral care regimen. Gums are the supportive structure of the teeth, and gum disease or poor gum conditions can result in tooth and bone loss if not treated in a timely manner. At A Plus Dental, PC, we perform a Midwood teeth cleaning
for our patients annually. A regular cleaning done by a dentist can get into the crevices where regular brushing and flossing alone cannot. A dental cleaning can help ward off tooth decay, scrape away plaque and remove tartar.
Tooth decay can make people more susceptible to cavities, which can then result in the tooth falling out if it isn’t taken care of. Having a Midwood teeth cleaning every year is critical to keeping teeth and gums healthy and in top shape. Brushing and flossing alone is not sufficient for removing plaque and tartar, and even with daily care, cannot get rid of plaque buildup the way dental tools can. Tartar needs to be scraped off the teeth, as it regenerates by the day. Reducing plaque buildup and tooth decay can help to prevent cavities and gum disease. At each exam a routine checkup is performed. We’ll also check the gums for healthy tissue.
Both adults and children are recommended to have a cleaning at least once per year. Children under 4 should come in for a Midwood teeth cleaning
once teeth develop and again right before starting school, to ensure their teeth are growing in correctly and without any cavities. Dental care is important and should be a priority from a young age, so that kids can learn the proper steps to keeping teeth healthy and clear of cavities and other oral problems that can cause dental trouble.
