Do you want to keep your smile beautiful, white and healthy? With a few minutes a day
and a couple of visits to the dentist each year, you can. It’s all about
prevention. Brush your teeth often, floss your teeth well, and get your teeth cleaned
professionally at the dentist’s every six months.
Why is it vital to visit the dentist for periodic cleanings? First, that makes it easier for
your dentist to ensure the health of your teeth. Cavities can be detected and repaired
promptly. Second, and just as importantly, regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar
that not only detract from the luster of your teeth but also eat away at your dental health,
promoting tooth decay, bad breath and gum disease.
