Aside from a regular oral hygiene routine done at home, dental cleanings are also highly necessary to keep your pearly whites in tip top shape. Unfortunately, a lot of people do not see its value.
A dental cleaning (oral prophylaxis) is a thorough cleaning of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Its primary goal is to remove tartar and plaque. Even those who brush and floss their teeth regularly still have tartar in their mouth especially in hard to reach areas, so setting an appointment for dental cleanings at least every six months is often recommended by dental professionals.
While it’s generally painless, the jaw discomfort, unfamiliar machine noises, and all the prodding that will be done inside your mouth can cause anxiety and fear in some people. However, with all of the benefits that regular dental cleanings can offer, you shouldn’t think twice about having it done regularly. With this procedure, your teeth and gums will become healthier and stronger. It also prevents cavities from forming and worsening as well as tartar buildup. It’s an essential dental procedure that you should never skip.
