Advantages of a Professional Fort Worth Dental Cleaning

To maintain your dental health properly, The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you visit the dentist at least twice a year for a professional dental cleaning. Aside from the benefit of having superbly clean teeth and gums, another major plus of having a Fort Worth dental cleaning is that HomeTown Dental’s knowledgeable dentists will be able to inspect your teeth and gums. This examination can uncover any possible dental health issues you might be experiencing.

The Dental Cleaning Process

Our dental cleaning process starts with our professionals removing the excess plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth. When plaque builds up too much, it turns into tartar which significantly increases the rate at which teeth decay. Preventing this from happening means removing the plaque that has accumulated and smoothing out the surface of your teeth. Next, your dentist will polish your teeth. Polishing your teeth will help you achieve your ideal smile by adding a bit of brightness to your teeth.

Maintaining Proper Dental Health During the Holidays

While maintaining dental health all year long is extremely important, the holiday season becomes significantly more difficult because you are exposed to some of the worst possible foods for your teeth. Be sure to watch your sugary food intake and to brush thoroughly after meals. Things like candy canes, caramel apples, hot chocolate, wine, tea, and even stuffing can all cause problems if you don’t maintain your dental hygiene.
