The Critical Role of Professional Teeth Cleaning

Dental Hygiene

While virtually everyone knows that twice-daily brushing and flossing is universally prescribed and serves as the first line of defense against cavities and gum disease, far too many people forget that proper dental care requires that they take things one step further. Dentists strongly urge patients to schedule at least two office visits per year in order to have a teeth cleaning performed by a professional dental hygienist. There are good reasons to have a teeth cleaning every six months. Within a couple of days after having a professional teeth cleaning, you’re already facing a resurgence of the oral bacteria that the dental hygienist just removed.

While proper brushing and flossing can minimize the presence of damaging bacteria, even the most thorough brushers and flossers will end up with plaque build-up during the six months before their next teeth cleaning. The longer plaque is allowed to stay on the teeth, the greater its ability to calcify onto the surface of the teeth. When that occurs, it becomes virtually immune to home removal methods. At that point, a professional teeth cleaning using the specialized tools of a dental hygienist will be required to remove it.

Besides having a dental hygienist remove harmful plaque and oral bacteria during a teeth cleaning, there are other reasons to schedule an appointment with a dentist in Mount Dora at least twice a year. A thorough dental exam is often the only way that cavities can be identified, and it may be that during one of these routine dental appointments that the early stages of oral cancer will be spotted.
