General Teeth Cleaning
Regular dentist visits for teeth cleaning are key to strong teeth and good oral health.
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist at least once a year, with many people needing repeated visits.
General cleanings involve:
- Cavity check
- Plaque build-up removal
- Partial removal of surface stains
- Fluoride treatment
Besides promoting good oral health, stopping in for a general cleaning can also be a preventative measure.
Reasons you might want to visit your dentist:
- Cracked or broken tooth
- Jaw pain
- Bleeding gums
- Bad breath
All of these might be things that point to a much more serious issue that will require more expensive work down the road.
Make sure you keep up with regular check-ups to go along with daily maintenance.
