Why do I need to get my teeth cleaned?
Professional teeth cleanings are very important to your dental health. That's because professional cleanings are essential to the removal of plaque, calculus (tartar) and tooth stains. They also give your dentist a chance to examine your mouth for cavities or gum disease. The ADA recommends that you schedule regular dental checkups to ensure good oral health.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
How can I prevent my teeth from falling out?
The best way to prevent your teeth from falling out is to practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular dental visits for professional cleanings. Good oral hygiene at home means always brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride and remembering to floss daily. It also means to eat a balanced diet and to limit between-meal snacking. Remember, getting older doesn't mean losing teeth.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
