Why Get My Teeth Cleaned?
Getting your teeth cleaned has many benefits. If you don’t have a hygienist remove the colorless film that builds up on your teeth, it turns hard and produces toxins that irritate the gums and can cause gum disease.
If your gums bleed when you brush, this is likely the cause. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, so keeping those cleaning appointments are vital to keeping your teeth.
Regular cleanings can also help reduce staining from tobacco use, coffee, tea and other beverages. Persistent bad breath can come from a number of causes and Lynda can help determine the source and guide you through a plan to eliminate it.
Guidance on Home Care
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. Lynda will make sure you understand the importance of daily care, including brushing and flossing to prevent problems before they develop into expensive and painful conditions.
Unfortunately, simply brushing your teeth isn’t enough. Proper oral hygiene requires ten minutes of brushing and flossing every day. If you are not a big flosser, don’t feel bad- the average adult spends two or three minutes total on their morning and evening dental routine, and kids do even worse.
Lynda will work teach you the latest in flossing techniques and help you understand the many benefits of doing it more regularly.
