Brushing and flossing every day are critical to maintaining your healthy smile, but that alone can’t ensure the strength and longevity of your teeth and gums. Brushing removes most of the plaque that builds up on your teeth, but it can’t remove plaque’s tougher cousin, tartar. If tartar is allowed to build up, it can lead to cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. This is why regular dental cleanings are important. To maintain optimal oral health, routine or preventive cleaning appointments should be a part of everyone’s dental hygiene regimen at least once every six months.
