Whoops, I got off track….
The kids summer camps, your nephew’s wedding, the roof that was leaking…it happens to us all at one point and time, too many things going on and we skip dental visits. Now is the perfect time to get back on track with your dental visits!
People who stay on track with their cleanings are more likely to have less work that needs to be done and small cavities are detected before they get too large.
What happens when you miss cleanings?
Tartar develops at the gumline of your teeth and builds up until it is professionally cleaned.
Usually everyone should be seen every 3 to 6 months depending on how many restorations they have or how fast they build tartar.
If either are a concern, then you are more than likely a candidate for a 3 month cleaning.
What do you do in the mean time to keep teeth clean?
The best toothbrush on the market right now is a Sonicare toothbrush. This electric toothbrush rotates in ways that a manual toothbrush can not and gets under the gums at angles that we usually can not. We carry Sonicare in our office and we would love to show you how great it is at your next visit!
Flossing is extremely important in between cleanings as well.
So yes, we all get busy, but it’s never too late to get back on track! Call us now to schedule your next cleaning!
