Apart from brushing and flossing, another important thing you have to incorporate into your oral hygiene is regular dental visits. It is during your dental consultation that your dentist can provide you effective preventive care so that you can stay away from oral health problems including tooth decay, gum diseases, cavities, etc.
To ensure optimum oral health, professional dental cleanings are required. These should be done at least once every six months. These are important because this is how your dentist can remove the tartar buildup from the surfaces of your teeth, which brushing and flossing are not capable of removing. Tartar hardens when the plaque stays longer on your teeth and you need to pay attention to the tartar buildup because that is where tooth decay and cavities begin. A professional dental cleaning can also ensure that all of the areas of your mouth and teeth are thoroughly cleaned, since there may be some areas that are hard for your toothbrush to reach.
