Routine cleanings are one of the most important things you can do to keep your teeth healthy. Brushing and flossing daily are not enough to protect you from tooth decay, tooth loss and gum disease. Dr. Clarke recommends that you come in for a routine cleaning every six months. Routine visits can prevent plaque from building up and causing more serious problems. During your teeth cleaning, one of our wonderful dental hygienists will remove plaque, tartar and bacteria that can’t be removed with your regular toothbrush.
Let’s not forget about the importance of routine cleaning for kids: cavity prevention! During your child’s routine cleaning, Dr. Clarke can apply sealants, which are a thin, plastic material that gets painted onto teeth to prevent bacteria from attaching to the tooth. Fluoride can an also be applied during a routine cleaning to strengthen the enamel of your teeth. So what are you waiting for?
