Spring has finally sprung, and with it, the urge to spring clean. When you’re focused on cleaning up the dust, cobwebs, and clutter around your home, you may not put as much energy into other areas of your life needing a little TLC. There’s no better time than your yearly spring cleaning to turn your attention towards oral hygiene. If it’s been over 6 months since you last saw the dentist, you’re due for your next dental checkup and cleaning at Family Dentistry of Knoxville. So, put down the dust rags, mops, and brooms for a moment and start thinking about your smile!
Regular teeth cleanings, including a scaling and polishing by a dental hygienist, make a huge difference in oral hygiene and health. The purpose of these cleanings is to remove the plaque and tartar that builds up over time and can only be removed by a professional, as it is nearly impossible to do so with brushing and flossing at home. Without these regular cleanings at least twice annually, tartar begins to affect the gums, which can cause a number of complications, like gum disease or tooth decay. Gum disease can only be reversed in its earliest stages, as it is progressive and can lead to tooth loss when it is advanced.
