Prevention Is The Best Medicine
The condition of your mouth says a lot about your whole body. A healthy mouth reflects a state of overall a person's overall health, as poor oral health can point to problems in various body systems. Since dental problems are some of the most visible symptoms of diseases that can be dangerous or even life-threatening, your dentist should be one of the first lines of defense in your preventative care routine.
Regular cleanings take place at your dentist’s office every six months. These important appointments benefit your oral health by removing all the plaque and tartar on your teeth. Additionally, regular cleanings allow your dentist to examine your teeth and mouth to spot any abnormalities or dental conditions. An examination twice a year can mean the difference between conservative and more complex or invasive treatments.

Seeing your dentist twice yearly can truly benefit your oral health. However, keeping up with your oral care routine between dental visits will keep your teeth healthy and clean.

This, coupled with regular dental examinations, will help keep your teeth, mouth and oral tissues stay in tip-top shape, free of decay and gum disease.
