The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional teeth cleaning appointment with one of our Grand Rapids dentists every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay.
While brushing and flossing your teeth keeps plaque and bacteria at bay, you can’t neglect to schedule dental checkups.
Some dental plaque can only be removed during a professional dental cleaning so it doesn’t harden into tartar. Your dentist can also help you prevent gum disease, such as gingivitis and the more serious periodontitis. Scheduling dental cleanings is just one more way to safeguard your smile.
The gentle professional teeth cleanings performed in our office will help you preserve your teeth and gums. If you have not scheduled your next professional cleaning, contact our Grand Rapids dental practice. With one quick phone call, our receptionist can help you set up an appointment today. We will answer any questions you have so you can feel comfortable during your next appointment with us.
