If you are brushing and flossing every day, twice a day, then you are doing an above average job of keeping up the health of your smile. However you still need to regularly visit your dentist so that any potential problems can be prevented. It is very hard to get rid of all plague and tartar even with regular brushing. That is why a treatment from a dental hygienist is necessary to get the deep down debris that even intense brushing can miss.
Regular examinations and scheduled teeth cleanings are just normal for us at Willow Dental. We can also recommend and deliver preventative hygiene services for remedying gum disease, and even bad breath control.
