Professional dental cleanings should be a regular part of your oral hygiene routine. A teeth cleaning at Cosmetic & Advanced Dentistry, a dentist office located in Owings Mills, MD, should be performed at least twice a year as a preventive measure. Teeth cleanings can help prevent the development of a tooth cavity and periodontal disease, both of which can lead to tooth loss. Teeth cleanings contribute to protecting the longevity of the teeth and gums. Maintaining your natural smile helps support a stable bite and prevents the need for more complex dental procedures.
The Importance of Routine Dental Care
A professional teeth cleaning twice a year is an important part of your oral health routine in addition to your at-home oral care. Both of these very important habits play a role in the longevity of your natural smile. While good oral hygiene at home is important, our dental hygienists can reach tooth surfaces that are often missed with daily tooth brushing. While cleaning your teeth, we look for any signs of decay or damage that can be more easily addressed in the early stages. If problems do exist, Dr. Lazer can recommend additional visits for a tooth filling or gum disease treatment in order to maintain optimal dental health. Keeping your smile clean and healthy benefits both your oral and overall health.
