When You Need It and Why It Is Necessary
In addition to brushing and flossing every day, dental hygiene professionals recommend a teeth cleaning once every six months. In many cases, if patients skip a cleaning or two, they may discover that they have accumulated an unhealthy amount of plaque or bacteria in the mouth. This can lead to the development of periodontists disease, gingivitis, or other damaging oral condition like cavities, or tooth loss. A deep dental cleaning is a more involved process that can eliminate this harmful debris and bacteria that has collected underneath the gum line.
