Most people brush and floss their teeth without thinking too much about what they’re doing. However, dental hygiene habits are essential to keeping your teeth healthy. Quality home dental care, coupled with professional oral hygiene services from Montclair Dental Care in Oakland, California, can keep your smile healthy and bright year after year.
When you brush and floss your teeth properly, it helps reduce plaque build-up on your teeth. Plaque contains harmful bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease. Plaque that accumulates on your teeth eventually hardens into tartar, which can destroy the enamel and bone structure of your teeth, causing them to weaken and fall out. Good oral care habits at home are the basis for cleaner, stronger, healthier teeth. However, you also need regular dental cleanings to keep your teeth completely plaque- and tartar-free.
Professional dental cleaning rids your mouth of plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria that threaten your oral health. Dr. Kenneth Childers uses special dental tools to clean your teeth, leaving them fresh, smooth, and shiny. By scheduling bi-annual dental cleanings, you minimize your risk of cavities and gum disease to keep your smile looking and feeling its best long-term.
