Regular brushing and flossing are an important part of oral hygiene. However, it is equally important to engage in regular visits to the dentist for routine teeth cleaning to keep your smile bright and white, and Dr. Lowery at Avery Ranch Dental in Austin, Texas provides general and cosmetic dentistry.
Regular brushing and flossing at home are essential to keeping your smile strong and healthy. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day, for at least two minutes at a time. When brushing, use a soft-bristled brush and work all over your teeth, inside and out, as far back as you can reach. Also, at least once a day you should gently floss to remove particles of food and debris from between your teeth, including the back most teeth even if they do not have a neighboring tooth.
Even the best oral hygiene techniques, however, will not remove everything from your teeth. Every so often it is important to have a dental professional give your teeth a thorough cleaning to get rid of the plaque, stubborn buildup and foreign materials you cannot reach with regular at-home care. Dr. Lowery and her associates at Avery Ranch are expert general dentists who can ensure you get the very best in professional tooth cleaning and care.
As food particles build up on your teeth, they form plaque and tartar, which can weaken the enamel on your teeth. Once this enamel is gone, it can never be replaced, and this vastly increases the chances of tooth decay.
In addition, plaque and tartar under your gums can create infections which can turn into periodontal disease and infections in the mouth can spread to other areas of your body, creating serious medical and health problems. Having regular tooth cleanings is not just essential to your teeth, they are a major part of your general healthcare.
In general, it is recommended that you have your teeth professionally examined and cleaned every six months. This will help to make sure that any plaque or tartar buildup on your teeth is completely cleared away so that it does not develop into worse problems down the road.
