Summer has arrived, the kids are out of school, and it’s the perfect time to bring your family into our Gaithersburg, MD dental office for professional teeth cleanings. Remember, professional teeth cleanings are important even if you and your loved ones brush and floss regularly.
At Lakeforest Dental Associates, we recommend a good oral hygiene routine at home. This means brushing and flossing twice per day and limiting sugar and acidity in your foods and beverages.
These simple steps are important to help you and your family members maintain healthy smiles, but you still need professional teeth cleanings in Gaithersburg, MD to clear away what brushing and flossing leaves behind.
Our skilled hygienist uses the latest techniques and technologies to get rid of the bacteria and tartar that may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and dental emergencies. Even the best toothpaste cannot do this.
The American Dental Association mirrors our suggestion for twice-yearly teeth cleanings, and we have found that following these guidelines lowers your risk for gum disease, cavities, and dental emergencies that can lead to root canals or even potential tooth loss.
Before or following your professional teeth cleaning, ask our hygienist for the best tips to use at home for your unique dental health profile. Our hygienist may recommend an additional brushing or flossing session for yourself or a family member, a fluoride rinse, or even a sealant to help keep your teeth strong or help reduce cavities.
