Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the purpose of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and Dentist Wilmington NC hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning.
Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day are the golden rules for good dental health. Daily brushing and flossing keeps healthy mouths healthy, however there are many other dental problems that brushing and flossing alone cannot fix. For this reason, we recommend all our patients come in for a check-up Trumansburg Family Dentistry and clean every six months, just to make sure there are no problems that need to be addressed.
