To maintain good oral health, it is important that you visit your trusted dentist at Acadia Dental for a regular evaluation at least once a year. You will find that having inadequate protective care can result in damage to your teeth and/or gums. To avoid this, it is highly suggested that you get preventive maintenance through professional oral hygiene visits and cleanings every six months or so, depending on your needs. Even if you have really good oral hygiene, it may not be enough to keep your teeth and gums protected. Professional cleaning can help prevent the buildup of bacteria, especially in areas that may not be reached by your toothbrush. It also results in a smoother surface which makes your tooth more resistant to bacterial buildup.
The combination of regular professional cleanings and diligent home care is key to combating the constant attempt of bacteria to invade your teeth and cause oral health problems. As your dentists, we want to ensure that your oral health is at always at its best. To do that, we need to be able to identify and prevent any potential problems as well as address existing issues. We customize our services to suit your needs perfectly.
In general, your teeth are really strong. In fact, if we place them in a box, they will last for an eternity. Unfortunately, they can’t be stored in a secure place. They are constantly subjected to force, food, and beverages that can cause them to break down. The effects of those elements are what we want to control. With regular dental visits to Acadia Dental and proper oral hygiene, you can keep your teeth beautiful for life!
