Do you have plans for your dental hygiene visits this year? A professional hygiene visit and cleaning can help you save major dental care costs down the road. It’s one of those situations where an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.
One common reason why people put off their dental hygiene visits is they think they are doing the best possible job themselves at home. You may be one of those people who brushes well, regularly and after every meal. And, let’s say you floss daily. And, even more, you don’t have any pain or bleeding that might cause you to call the dentist. Even though you are doing fine, a professional cleaning is more thorough. Just from looking into your mouth from the outside, we have a better angle to see. We have tools designed to get into the hard to reach places where plaque can build up. And, we have experience at spotting problems before they become serious problems.
You can’t forget that, even if your home care is the greatest, plaque building up in even the hard to reach areas will erode your teeth’s enamel and irritate your gums. Under these conditions, you still can do more damage by consuming sodas and other high sugary items even if you are doing a good job with your home care. This is why it’s best to keep your regular cleaning appointment every six months.
