You may think if you brush and floss daily and don’t notice any cavities that you don’t need professional teeth cleanings in St. Paul, MN. However, an excellent oral care routine at home, coupled with preventive exams and teeth cleanings are the hallmarks of a healthy smile.
Your dentist follows guidelines put forward by the American Dental Association. The ADA recommends:
- Dental exams and teeth cleanings twice per year
- Brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice per day
- Dental x-rays as needed
These recommendations lower your risks for preventable dental conditions like cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Your exam allows your dentist to find oral health issues early when treatment is less invasive. Your teeth cleaning in St. Paul, MN clears away everything your at-home routines leave behind, including the bacteria and tartar that leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
If you have a dental health issue, of course, your dentist customizes your treatment to better fit your needs.
