Regular checkups (ideally every six months) will help your teeth stay cleaner, last longer, and prevent painful problems.
At Clínica deladent we have detected together with our specialists that in a vast majority of dental problems they start by not knowing how to brush their teeth and floss.
After the precautionary exams and scanning, your dental doctor will start preparing for the actual cleaning procedure. The process is done in 3 steps: plaque removal, flossing and polishing your teeth. One of the most important parts of the routine cleaning is removing plaque and tartar that builds up on the inner and outer sides of your teeth causing them to turn yellow or even brown. When food or drink residue sits on the surface of the tooth for too long, it turns into a plaque. If plaque is not removed, it can turn into decay or cause gum disease.
Routine visits to the dentist are imperative to your well-being. Be sure to take all of the suggestions on board or call us if you have any questions!
