Preventive care involves proper brushing and flossing methods, as well as coming in for annual cleanings each year with our 11561 family dentist. That’s why at Long Beach Dental Arts, PC, we urge patients to come in for a yearly cleaning. Plaque and tartar buildup can get in the teeth and cause problems if it isn’t scraped away during a dental cleaning.
During your annual cleaning we’ll get in between the crevices of teeth and gums with a special tool used to scrape off plaque and tartar. This helps us clear bacteria from in between the teeth. Regular brushing and flossing techniques cannot get as deep inside the gum and tooth area, which is why our 11561 family dentist recommends these types of cleanings. Patient should come in at least once a year. Dental care is important in maintaining healthy teeth and in keeping cavities at bay. Cavities may form holes that can cause tooth pain, decay and eventually loose or missing teeth or gum disease.
During your annual cleaning our 11561 family dentist can get in between the crevices between teeth and gums with a special tool that is used to scrape off plaque and tartar, and clear bacteria from in between the teeth. Normal brushing and flossing techniques cannot get as deep as we can with these types of cleanings, as we use special tools to get under the gum and inside the deep pockets to clear the bacteria.
