We have all been told just how important it is that we brush our teeth since we were kids. Brushing, flossing and using a mouth wash are all great ways to help fight cavities and gum disease. We are told to keep up with these habits so that we have brighter, whiter and healthier smiles. While this advice is still true, there is still more that you can do to make sure that your teeth are as healthy as they should be. Professional dental cleanings are recommended by most dentists and we can provide them for you and your family right here at Rochdale Dental Care at our Jamaica NY dental office.
Even though it is still recommended that individuals brush about two times a day, floss daily and use an anti bacterial mouth wash on a regular basis, it is still possible to develop cavities or gingivitis. The truth is, as important as all of these oral hygiene habits are to keeping your teeth clean, there is only so much that these tools can do. When it comes to getting rid of everyday plaque and tartar build up, brushing, flossing and rinsing can get the job done, but unfortunately these preventative methods cannot prevent any and all plaque buildup completely. It is recommended that patients of all ages have their teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist about once every six months. This ensures that any stubborn or hard to reach plaque buildup is properly taken care of on a regular basis before cavities or gum disease can take hold. Here at Rochdale Dental Care at our Jamaica NY dental office, our teeth cleaning sessions are thorough but they are also gentle so you do not have to worry about any pain or discomfort throughout the duration of the procedure.
Making sure that you get the teeth cleaning and dental care that you need is vital to your oral health. It can help prevent the development of tooth decay, gum disease and even prevent the need for emergency dental visits. Here at Rochdale Dental Care, we can provide you with the dental care you need right here at our Jamaica NY dental office.
