Why do I need checkups and cleanings if I brush my teeth every day?
This is a great question, and one we get pretty often from adults and children alike! While brushing (and don’t forget flossing!) are absolutely essential to taking care of your teeth, the truth of the matter is that they aren’t able to meet every single one of your dental needs. Many small areas in the mouth are unreachable by your home tools, and these accumulate plaque and food particles that can eventually turn into cavities. Plus, if you do develop a cavity or gum disease, there is almost nothing at home you can do to address them.
With a professional cleaning, our hygienist will be able to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, particularly targeting those trouble spots you can’t at home. And with a checkup, Dr. Glikman or Dr. Berrada will have the chance to find and treat any dental problems you might have. When a consistent home routine is paired with regular trips to the dentist, it’s easy to get a smile that you never have to worry about. It will be beautifully white, clean, strong, and that’s certainly great to see in the mirror every day!
