One of the most important reasons for scheduling dental appointments routinely is to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. Even when you brush and floss conscientiously, some soft, sticky plaque is missed. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, which is even more difficult to remove with your standard toothbrush and floss. Tartar forms below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth. Missed plaque and tartar raise your risk for developing more serious infections within your teeth and gums. Recent studies show a strong link between untreated gum disease and other serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Having your teeth professionally cleaned on a schedule is one of the simplest things you can do to stay healthy!
