Even if you brush and floss your teeth meticulously, it is still important that you have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis. After a thorough cleaning at Mishawaka Dental, your teeth will feel smooth and clean, and they will probably look a lot brighter too. However, professional teeth cleanings aren’t done for cosmetic reasons alone.
At Mishawaka Dental, we understand that your teeth require regular attention. This is because over time they tend to build up a layer of bacteria-rich plaque, as well as hard deposits called tartar. Plaque and tartar are very difficult to remove without the use of special dentistry tools. If these deposits are allowed to remain on the tooth surfaces or below the gum line, they can create conditions for bacteria to grow and multiply The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional cleaning with Mishawaka dental every six months.
Additionally, acids produced by some bacteria in plaque can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. If left uncontrolled, this can cause inflammation and infection of the gums, and possibly influence other diseases. At Mishawaka Dental, our professional teeth cleanings will help you preserve healthy teeth and gums.
While taking time for regular teeth cleanings may seem uncomfortable or inconvenient, it is far less of a procedure compared to root canal therapy or tooth extractions. A routine dental cleaning lasts only about an hour and will usually include polishing for brighter, whiter teeth. Maintain your teeth and avoid the cost and discomfort of extensive dental restorations – contact us and schedule professional teeth cleaning at Mishawaka Dental today.
