Scheduling dental check-ups on a regular basis is very important, not only for good oral hygiene, but also for your overall health. Catching dental problems early helps to prevent bigger problems, increases treatment success, and helps to keep costs low. Unfortunately as dental problems get worse, they generally also become more difficult to fix as well as more expensive to fix. It is recommended to have a checkup visit at least twice per year.
Regular teeth cleanings not only improve your smile, but also play a vital role in good oral hygiene. In addition to daily brushing and flossing, teeth cleaning helps to remove plaque build-up that can lead to cavities and gum disease. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental and medical problems like gum disease, infection, tooth loss, and even heart disease.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that can substantially improve the brightness and whiteness of your teeth without cutting or damaging the teeth. Teeth whitening is long lasting, but may require touch-ups after several months or years to “refresh” your smile. Dramatic differences in teeth appearance after whitening is one of the reasons that this procedure has become extremely popular.
