Do you remember the last time you paid a visit to your local dentist? While a healthy diet coupled with regular brushing and flossing are great ways to begin caring for your teeth, your smile needs much more than simple oral hygiene and a balanced diet in order to stay healthy and strong. Dental prophylaxis, or the process of effectively preventing oral health care problems and diseases, can only be achieved through regular cleanings and examinations. In fact, visits to the dentist as scheduled by your doctor can actually save you time and money. Your first step towards a better smile begins with booking your next Hartford teeth cleaning
at the welcoming offices of the Contemporary General Dentistry.
Oral health care starts at home, but it does not end there. Brushing teeth twice daily with a soft bristled brush and fluoride based toothpaste, as well as taking care to floss teeth at least once a day are a necessary basis for proper dental hygiene which can only be complete with regular visits to the dentist. This is due to the simple fact that no amount of at-home care can truly make your smile completely clean. No matter how advanced your electronic tooth brush may be, there is no oral device for sale to the general public which can be used to remove tartar or calculus from your teeth. Tartar is a stubborn deposit which begins to form just 20 minutes after snacks and meals. Unlike plaque, which is simply the sticky byproduct of sugars coming into contact with your saliva, tartar is a hardened build-up which is too dense to be remove by any amount of brushing and flossing alone. In fact, brushing too vigorously can actually cause damage to the surface of your teeth. A Hartford teeth cleaning every six months works to gently yet effectively remove both plaque and calculus from the surface of your teeth, all while working to lower the level of naturally occurring bacteria in your mouth. Biannual teeth cleanings are the only way to effectively stop cavities from ever forming on your teeth, as well as preventing gum disease from ever causing harm to your smile. Regular visits to the dentist save time and money by avoiding problems that would otherwise prompt the need for additional care.
