Why Are Teeth Cleaning Necessary?
When you eat certain foods or consume sugary drinks, your enamel gets attacked by acids that weaken it. The same happens when plaque builds up on your teeth when it is not properly removed. Because of this, it’s best to get your teeth cleaned by a professional so that any plaque that has built up can be removed from all the surfaces of your teeth.
If you have certain health conditions such as diabetes, periodontal disease, osteoporosis, anemia, high blood pressure, or are pregnant, it’s essential that you have your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. This is because these health conditions can increase your risk of developing gingivitis.
Routine checkups are also highly recommended for everyone. During your routine checkups, we will not only check the health of your teeth and gums but also perform an oral cancer screening to help diagnose any problems early.
