Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is what dental hygiene is all about. It’s the single most important thing you can do to keep your teeth for a lifetime. We urge everyone to brush and floss twice a day, and see us every six months at Bill Dorfman DDS Century City Aesthetic Dentistry.
By establishing a dental hygiene routine and sticking with it, you can:
1. Protect Your Gums
It’s not only severe cavities that can damage a tooth until it is beyond saving. Gum disease that leads to bone loss is just as dangerous. Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque that creates pockets of infection between the gums and tooth roots. A professional cleaning gets rid of the plaque before it can cause problems.
2. Prevent Cavities
Even if you brush and floss your teeth morning and night, plaque can build up. It’s a stubborn substance, but a professional cleaning by a skilled hygienist twice a year can keep it at bay.
Clean teeth and gums begin with your home dental hygiene routine. But it continues with preventative dentistry at Bill Dorfman DDS Century City Aesthetic Dentistry. We also provide general and family dentistry, and for those coping with dental anxiety, sedation dentistry options. Make an appointment with us today.
