Your Teeth Require Regular Dental Care
You should take care of your teeth daily to make sure the stay in proper condition to help you chew your food and provide you with an attractive smile. This dental care should include brushing twice a day at least if not three times a day to remove food debris and stains. In addition, you need to floss each time you brush to prevent plaque from forming in between the teeth. Brushing and flossing both also help to prevent cavities and gum disease.
Many problems can occur because of poor dental hygiene ranging from cavities to gum disease. Cavities are rotted out spots in the teeth and while the dentist can fill these spots, you do not want to have these occur on a regular basis in your mouth. Gum disease occurs when the gums become infected due to improperly caring for your teeth. These things and more are why you need to do your part in taking care of your teeth and gums.
Another part of caring for your teeth is routine checkups at the dentist. During these checkups, a hygienist will clean and X-ray your teeth. The dentist will then analyze the X-rays and do a physical exam of your mouth to see what other dental treatment you may need to have. If you need further treatment, the dentist will set you up an appointment for said treatment. Treatment could vary from in-depth cleaning to root canals.
