If you brush and floss your teeth regularly, then you are most likely well aware of the importance of keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

When it comes to keeping your teeth and gums healthy, our in-office teeth cleaning ranks up there among the most important things to have done. When you brush and floss your teeth at home it is never possible to remove all of the plaque and bacteria from your teeth. When plaque is allowed to stay on the teeth, hardened tartar forms. This mineralized substance will eventually get between the teeth and gums and begin to form deep pockets. It is in these deep pockets that gum disease begins to take hold as the bacteria, tartar and plaque all mix to form an infection.

When you have an Alexandria teeth cleaning, tartar, plaque and bacteria is all removed from on and between your teeth. Tartar can only be removed by professional dental cleaning instruments because it totally adheres to the teeth. If tartar is not removed and deep pockets are allowed to form, gum disease will develop. If the infection progresses, it will eventually work its way down to the jawbone. Once this occurs, teeth will begin to loosen and eventually fall out. Gum disease can generally be easy to prevent with excellent at home dental care and periodic in-office teeth cleanings. If you would like to come to our office to have your teeth cleaned, and to have a periodic dental exam, contact us today.
