If you want to take the best care of your teeth and your gum, you need not only to brush your teeth at least two times a day, to consume foods that promote oral health and to avoid foods and drinks that can harm your teeth by staining them or by damaging the enamel, but you also need to have professional teeth cleaning regularly.
Most dentists recommend their patients to get their teeth cleaned professionally at least two times a year, but the ideal frequency depends on several factors, most of them related to the condition of your oral cavity and your overall health. Getting two professional cleaning treatments a year is ideal if you enjoy good overall health and oral health. If you suffer from gum disease, some other type of inflammation of the oral cavity, plaque or illnesses that cause dental problems, such as diabetes, you need to step up the frequency of your visits to the Lone Tree dentist for check up as well as for professional cleaning.
Professional dental cleaning is nowadays offered not only by dentists, but by specialists called dental hygienists as well. During the treatment, your dental professional will remove stains, plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, will apply substances that help protect the teeth and will make recommendations regarding further dental treatment, if any is required.
