|If you care about your smile-and most people do-you need to make sure that you visit your dentist on a regular basis. You need to do this in order to have your teeth professionally cleaned, and to allow us to closely inspect your teeth and gums for any signs of trouble.
Regular Cleanings Are Key to Dental HealthWhen you were growing up, your parents doubtless taught you that you needed to brush your teeth on a regular basis. Likely, they also told you the importance of flossing regularly. To be sure, these activities are absolutely crucial in order for you to maintain a happy and healthy smile. However, by themselves, they are simply not enough.
Regardless of how good of the job you may do in your brushing and flossing, you simply cannot keep your teeth as clean as they need to be. There are areas on your tooth-primarily below the gum line, where your toothbrush cannot reach-that you simply cannot keep clean at home.
When you come see us, we are able to reach down below the gum line and make sure that your teeth are clean. We can closely inspect your teeth for signs of wear and tear, and we can make plans to repair any areas where your tooth has been damaged due to trauma or decay.

However, most people do not know what to look for at home. That is why it is important for a dental professional to regularly take a look inside your mouth.
