Why Routine Dental Checkups are Crucial?
Plaque, Tartar, and Cavities
Even with regular brushing and flossing there are areas in the mouth that are missed. When plaque builds up it becomes increasingly difficult to remove and then solidifies into tartar. Tartar is extremely difficult to get rid of on our own and requires professional care.
Tartar makes your teeth erode and creates holes in your teeth which makes cavities. Cavities don’t give warning signs as they form. You’ll notice the presence of the cavity when it causes you pain. Once the damage is done, you will need to go to the dentist to have cavities and any other tooth problems fixed. This is why regular cleanings are important as they take care of your plaque and keep cavities from forming.
Cleaning appointments are more affordable than getting fillings, so if you’re saving money you should make sure not to miss the cleanings!
