Why You Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning

Why You Need a Professional Teeth Cleaning

Being told that you should have a professional tooth cleaning is by no means meant to disrespect to your own abilities and oral hygiene habits. Even the most diligent among us are recommended two professional dental cleanings a year. You may schedule your own with the professionals at Amazing Smiles Family Dental Centers, Dr. Fredrick Vega and Dr. Daniel Vasquez in Belmont and Hooksett, NH.

It Begins at Home

The ADA recommends brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day to prevent the buildup of plaque. You're likely familiar with how it feels on your teeth.

This layer of buildup is referred to by scientists as a biofilm, as it is home to colonies of microbes.

The bacteria now residing in your mouth also enjoy the sugars you consume. They produce acid as a result of their indulgence, which leads to tooth decay, cavities, and gingivitis.

So as you brush and floss you are daily removing this plaque and beating back these microbes.

You are also preventing the plaque from hardening into tartar. Once it does, only a professional cleaning can remove it.

Professional Help

During a professional teeth cleaning, one of the first steps is for the dental hygienist to remove the tartar from your teeth. It's perhaps one of the most memorable moments of the procedure. If you'd like to minimize it on your next visit, you may want to brush and floss more frequently.

But no matter how careful you are some plaque buildup is inevitable in the six months in-between visits. It's why doctors recommend this time frame for cleanings.

Besides keeping tartar and cavities at bay, constant checkups help your dentist diagnose other potential complications, and treat them in time.
