According to the Academy of General Dentistry, it is recommended to have a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year. This can improve your oral health and help prevent further issues. Every patient is different and some may need to come more frequently if there is periodontal disease present. The dentist or hygienist at polishDENTISTRY performing your cleaning will have the opportunity to remove any plaque and tartar that have accumulated on the teeth. Even with careful brushing and flossing it is still difficult to ensure teeth are 100% free of plaque and tartar at home. That is why twice a year it is recommended you visit your dentist for a professional cleaning!
Our staff at polishDENTISTRY Midtown Houston will carefully clear your mouth of any plaque and tartar deposits, we will polish your teeth to perfection and floss thoroughly. We generally perform cleanings in conjunction with an overall examination to ensure your mouth is looking its best.
Neglecting your at home and professional oral hygiene routine could result in periodontal disease that can require additional care and costs. Keeping up to date with your oral hygiene is your best defense!
