After the consecutive Holiday weeks of eating sweets and drinking beverages that could stain and damage your teeth, it is a great time to schedule a dental cleaning as part of your regular preventative dental care. Your dentist should be one of the persons you habitually visit after the holiday season. This small personal investment of time to your dental health sets the stage for good habits year round.
Our dental care professionals in Hampton, VA recommend that dental cleaning be accomplished routinely at the beginning of the year and at mid-year. This puts you on a scheduled habit and minimizes the chances of missing a vital health care activity. Generally, your insurance pays for two cleanings per year. Why not schedule those cleanings early in the calendar year and midway through the calendar year?
Brushing and flossing are two preventative dental care measures that can help keep you away from having poor dental health. By doing so, you will be able to brush away food debris that when left long enough inside your mouth can lead to bacterial build-up and we all know how detrimental it is to have them in our system, especially in the mouth.
