- Posted on: Apr 30 2021
Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but unfortunately, not everyone enjoys their smile without the need of assistance from a dental team. In fact, one critical part of good oral hygiene includes regular visits to the dentist for professional cleanings and evaluations. Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano and his team at DeStefano Dentistry in Pittsford, NY works routinely with patients who are in need of cleaning and evaluations. The American Dental Association recommends that every have a cleaning and evaluation every six months as part of their oral healthcare routine.
Bacteria and tartar cannot be eliminated with brushing and flossing
At DeStefano Dentistry, we know that practice cleaning of the teeth with brushing and flossing after every meal is vital to ensuring oral health and wellness. However, brushing and flossing of the teeth at home is not the only way to keep the smile healthy. Patients need to visit a dental professional regularly to ensure that they are doing what is best for their smile, and to remove stubborn bacteria and tartar that can contribute to periodontal disease and cavities.
Patients who do not routinely see their dentist for cleanings and evaluations may find themselves developing issues such as periodontal disease and tooth decay. This is because a dental hygienist has the precision instruments that are designed to get the teeth as clean as possible, ensuring the best results. Plaque and tartar can be removed in the office, and their tools can also help those who are vulnerable to infections and cavities. Additionally, during a cleaning and evaluation, our professionals can educate patients on the best ways to care for their teeth and gums, and reevaluate their oral hygiene habits at home to decide what might be the most appropriate use of products and instruments between dental appointments.
