Your gums are the anchoring system for your teeth. You need to have healthy gums in order to have healthy teeth. Therefore, it’s very important to maintain healthy gums in order to achieve good overall oral health. Greenlawn teeth cleaning is an essential part of obtaining and maintaining healthy gums.
There are two types of teeth cleaning that are necessary to obtain healthy gums. Regular everyday brushing and flossing is a very important part of keeping your gums healthy. When you brush your teeth well twice daily, you brush away food particles, bacteria and plaque. All of these substances lead to gum disease if they aren’t removed in a timely manner. While brushing your teeth at home daily is a very important part of your oral hygiene regimen, it’s not enough by itself to keep your gums healthy. You will also need to visit an experienced hygienist, like ours at Commack Dental Associates every 6 months in order to get a professional Greenlawn teeth cleaning. As part of your dental appointment, a professional teeth cleaning will need to be done in order to remove plaque and other irritants from your mouth. Plaque, which causes gum disease, cannot be removed through regular brushing. Special dental tools are needed to accomplish this. A professional dental cleaning, known as prophylaxis is the only way of removing tartar. Getting regular dental checkups and professional cleanings is extremely important. It greatly decreases your chances of gum disease. Therefore, if it has been more than six months since your last dental visit, you should schedule an appointment with an experienced, professional dentist and hygienist as soon as possible.
