So often, the simplest things can make the most difference. And that is certainly true when it comes to our Hartford teeth cleaning. We at Contemporary General Dentistry want you to know that a visit to our office every six months for a cleaning pays dividends with respect to your oral health that are important both now, and in the long turn.
It’s not an overstatement to say that our Hartford teeth cleaning is one of the keys to lifetime oral health, and here is why: both tooth decay and gum disease can be traced back to dental plaque, the filmy bacterial substance that grows on teeth, and at the gum line. At-home oral hygiene in the form of daily flossing and twice-daily brushing is a must, but any plaque that is out of reach of your efforts will eventually harden into tartar, which has the same negative impact as plaque. Worse still, it cannot be effectively removed with brushing and flossing. It can, however, be removed with our Hartford teeth cleaning. When you come in every six months, not only will your tartar be eradicated, but so will any residual plaque. Furthermore, if you have any signs of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, the cleaning will halt the progress and reverse the effects. It will also lessen the chances of getting cavities. And the mathematics of it are that the less decay in your teeth, the fewer cavities; the fewer cavities, the less chance of toothaches, infections, root canal, and losing a tooth. As for gum disease, addressing tartar two times per year means you won’t be nearly as prone to tartar getting beneath the gum line and getting advanced gum disease.
