If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you will want to make sure that you have regularly scheduled dental exams at our dental practice, State Valley Dental, as well as teeth cleanings every six months. Having a periodic Stow teeth cleaning is one of the most important things you can do to keep your teeth cavity-free and your gums healthy.
Even with the very best at-home dental cleaning regimen, it is impossible to keep all plaque and bacteria off your teeth. When plaque is allowed to stay on teeth for even a short amount of time, it will turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth and contributes to the development of deep pockets between the teeth and gums. When this happens, plaque, bacteria, tartar, and food debris will all gather in the deep pockets and infection will form. You will be on your way to developing a serious case of gum disease. However, when you have a Stow teeth cleaning, you are taking a giant step toward reducing the likelihood of developing gum disease. In fact, having a teeth cleaning at our dental practice is one of the most important things you can do to keep your gums healthy. If during a regular dental exam our dentist determines that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, he will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to make sure that your gums are able to return to good health. Having regular dental cleanings will also reduce your chances of getting any dental cavities. Plaque is the cause of dental cavities, so removing all excess plaque and bacteria will keep cavities from developing.
