Teeth cleaning in Lockport
Keeping your teeth optimally clean means preventing the worst consequences that result from plaque and tartar. At the office of Dennis block, dental cleanings, which mean the same thing as teeth cleanings, are a key component in a comprehensive strategy for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
Plaque is a bacterial film that grows on and between teeth and gums. Sugar is like fuel for plaque, so job one is limiting the amount of sugar you eat and drink. It is essential to brush your teeth upon waking, and again when you go to sleep. Combine that second brushing with thorough flossing. Whatever plaque you're not able to reach with your oral hygiene routine will turn to hardened tartar, though. The only way to effectively eliminate that is with our teeth cleaning in Lockport
. You should come in for one ever six months, because not only will tartar and any residual plaque be eradicated, but another benefit is that if you are experiencing any of the common signs of the first stage of gum disease, gingivitis, our teeth cleaning in Lockport will stop its progress and reverse any of its effects. It's important to know what happens if you skip your twice-yearly visit or keep postponing it. We understand how busy your schedule is, but it's worth the minimal time investment to keep advanced gum disease from developing.
