I brush and floss daily. Why do I need a professional teeth cleaning?
Healthy teeth for life starts with preventive dentistry, and professional teeth cleanings in our Albuquerque, NM dental office play a huge role.
Professional teeth cleanings help prevent:
- Dental infections
- Dental emergencies
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth loss
We have found that our Northeast Heights dental patients have fewer dental health issues when they follow guidelines put forward by the American Dental Association. The association recommends teeth cleanings at least every six months.
If you have gingivitis or periodontal disease, a more comprehensive dental cleaning is in order, and these cleanings may be scheduled more often.
With oral health, it is always better to prevent an issue than try to treat it!
Of course, we recommend brushing and flossing at least twice per day and avoiding sugar-rich snacks and beverages. However, even these steps are not enough and do not mean that you should forego a professional teeth cleaning.
Toothbrushes, pastes, and floss cannot clean hard-to-reach areas, and they cannot get rid of stubborn tartar and bacteria.
Our Albuquerque, NM hygienist utilizes all the latest technologies to help keep your teeth healthy for life! Our hygienist can also recommend preventative brushing and flossing strategies to help you get the most out of your oral health routine at home.
