There is no doubt that prevention is always better than treatment. Through regular personal care in combination with periodic professional dental exams and cleanings, you can effectively prevent disease and decay as well as avoid costly treatments and restorations in the future. Therefore, regular prevention is truly your best investment.
Most people are recommended to have a dental exam and cleaning every six months. Adhering to such routine will help you detect dental problems while they’re small and get them fixed in time. A professional dental cleaning removes hard tartar and plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone, effectively preventing buildup of tartar and plaque that could seriously damage the health of your gums and lead to oral disease such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
