When it comes to your oral health, the best offense is a good defense. Dental hygiene appointments in Nashville, TN are an incredibly important part of your oral care regimen throughout your lifetime. At these visits, you won’t only have your teeth cleaned, but one of our talented dentists will closely examine your mouth for signs of potential oral health problems.
Why Dental Cleanings are Important
Hygiene visits are critical to maintaining a healthy smile. Professional dental cleanings are necessary every six months to keep plaque and tartar from growing out of control as well as preventing oral health problems from seriously damage to your smile.
When plaque hardens into tartar, a toothbrush is ineffective in removing it—only a dental hygienist can eliminate it from your teeth. If tartar is left on the teeth for too long, it can accumulate and spread under gums and lay the groundwork for gum disease, oral cancer, and a whole slew of health issues down the line.
