If you treasure your beautiful smile you are probably very careful to brush and floss your teeth regularly, on a daily basis. However, did you know that professional teeth cleaning is still important if you want to be sure to maintain the beauty and health of your smile? It is very important to have a biannual dental visit, and periodic teeth cleaning in Erath if you want to make sure that your smile will continue to look great and be healthy.
At our practice, Adrian M Simm, D.D.S., our expert and well-respected dentist is Dr. Adrian M. Simm. Our practice provides preventive and cosmetic dentistry services for all of our patients. We offer many different services for smile makeovers including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, but we still consider teeth cleaning and biannual dental visits to be the cornerstone of great preventive dental care. Professional teeth cleaning in Erath can mean the difference between healthy gums or having gum disease. When you brush your teeth at home, you are able to remove most of the plaque and bacteria that is harmful to your teeth and gums. However some of the plaque always remains in your mouth. And it is this plaque that remains on your teeth that will in a short time harden into tartar. Once tartar forms no amount of brushing will be able to remove it.
Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that can only be removed by a professional dental cleaning using certain dental instruments. If not removed, tartar will work its way between the gums and the teeth, and deep pockets will begin to form. These deep pockets will gather more plaque and bacteria and gum disease will develop. If left to continue, the infection will ultimately reach down to the jawbone and your teeth will begin to loosen and fall out. This problem will never have a chance to develop this far if you have biannual dental visits with Dr. Simm, and have teeth cleaning in Erath. Biannual dental exams will also be able to detect any dental problems such as tooth cavities while they are still small and very easy to treat.
