Making Sure Your Smile Enjoys Consistent Preventive Care

When it comes to protecting your smile, how much care counts as “enough”? You need to brush your teeth at least two times, and floss at least once, and take the time to ensure that each session is beneficial. You should also plan on seeing your dentist semiannually for professional evaluations. Every time you see your Shrewsbury, MA dentist for a checkup, you receive a thorough review, which can lead to the identification of any problems that you need to be aware of. Because every visit also involves a professional teeth cleaning, you can count on professional care to help you avoid problems with tooth decay and gum disease. 

The Benefits That Come With Detailed Dental Cleanings

Every dental cleaning you receive at your dentist’s office can remove plaque, food debris, and tartar that are present on your teeth. By brushing and flossing consistently, you can stop harmful debris from gathering. What you should know is that while you can remove plaque and food particles on your own, any tartar deposits that form will remain until your next professional cleaning. This is one reason that persistence is so important to smile care – troublesome tartar can form in less time than you might expect.

Receiving A Thorough Review During Every Dental Exam

You can tell whether or not you have a cavity simply enough – if you are free of pain, you must be free of cavities, right? This is actually not the case – even before it creates obvious symptoms, a cavity can do enough damage to make restorative dental care necessary. Fortunately, your dentist is able to spot a cavity in its early stages, and provide proper care for your tooth before the matter worsens.
