Removing Stubborn Tartar From Your Smile

Removing tartar is not something you can do with brushing flossing alone. That is not meant to imply that these actions are not helping your smile – a routine based around these actions is vital to keeping your mouth healthy. Unfortunately, when tartar is allowed to form, it will be too stubborn to remove through your typical daily care. Your hygienist is able to remove it during a professional dental cleaning. That cleaning, part of your scheduled dental exam, will improve your defense against common problems like tooth decay and gum disease.

Take Advantage Of The Benefits You Enjoy From A Regular Dental Checkup

If you want to keep your smile free of problems, make sure you are taking advantage of your dentist’s preventive care. At every preventive appointment, you enjoy both a cleaning, and an examination. The cleaning will remove plaque and tartar, helping you stay clear of cavities, while also helping you avoid the onset of gum disease. During your examination, your dentist is monitoring your smile for any issues that may need to be addressed. If something turns up, they can alert you, and talk to you about the appropriate restorative dental treatment.

Planning Treatment For A Problem Discovered During A Checkup

It can be frustrating to learn that you have a dental problem, but you should know that earlier detection can limit the amount of harm done by something like a cavity. Over time, tooth decay continues to spread, and can eventually attack your tooth’s interior. If you want to minimize the damage you experience, having a problem detected and addressed earlier will let you save more of your tooth. The end result will be a tooth restored by a dental filling.
