The Importance of Having Regular Hygiene VisitsOne important reason to visit a dentist is to have your teeth cleaned by a trained hygienist. Plaque and tartar build up on teeth over time. Plaque is soft and sticky, but conscientious brushing can often clean off most of it. But plaque can solidify into tartar, which is too difficult to remove with your typical toothbrush and floss. Tartar accumulates under the gumline as well as on the tooth surface. If not removed, you risk more serious problems with your oral health later. Recent research reveals a link between untreated gum disease and serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Getting a teeth-cleaning regularly is a great thing you can do to stay healthy!
