There is a price to pay for everything, but sometimes you get back way more than you have to give. Such is the case with preventive dental care. With just a little bit of effort, you can have a high degree of oral health, with few cavities and infrequent bouts of gum disease. That’s what we’re committed to here at the practice of Verna & Mulahu.
Our Midtown East teeth cleaning serves a vital purpose, which is to eliminate the built up tartar that has developed since your last visit to our office. Those visits should ideally be six months apart for maximum effect. Dental plaque is something that occurs every single day, forming due to the sugars and starches in your diet. It’s like a bacterial-based film, and its acids erode your precious tooth enamel while also irritating and reddening your gums, which are the signs of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. The first line of defense against dental plaque is brushing your teeth. Do so first thing each morning, and last thing each night. It’s also highly recommended that you do so after meals, giving dental plaque little time to cause harm. You should also floss between your teeth before you go to bed. This will succeed in loosening up lodged food particles and the sticky plaque that hides out there. Any plaque that remains after your oral hygiene can turn into tartar. It’s a harder and crusty version of plaque, and it cannot be removed at home. It takes our Midtown East teeth cleaning to do that.
So reach out to our office now, while it’s on your mind, and take a big step toward prevention by scheduling your next trip to come in for a complete oral examination and our Midtown East teeth cleaning.
