Brushing your teeth twice per day with a fluoride toothpaste is a great start to maintain good dental hygiene. Flossing can help to clear any plaque build-up between the teeth and around your gum line, but even with great care, some areas can be missed and you might need some extra help.
A complete dental cleaning from your dentist or a dental hygienist can identify and correct any minor issues before they become serious. This will help to reduce the chance of gum disease, dental cavities, bad breath and other potential dental problems.
Based on your oral health, your dentist may recommend professional tooth cleaning once or twice per year.
