Biannual dental visits to us at the office of Stanley Weiss DDS & Emanuel Tennenbaum make all the difference when it comes to reducing the chances of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. Our teeth cleaning in Midtown is a cornerstone of optimal dental care.
In order to ascertain the importance of twice-yearly visits, let’s discuss what happens when you postpone them or don’t come in at all. Dental plaque, the filmy substance that feels like a coating on your teeth when you wake up each morning, is the primary cause of both tooth decay and gum disease. You should, of course, brush your teeth when you wake up, and then again before you go to sleep. Bedtime is also the ideal occasion to do a thorough flossing. The priority is to remove as much plaque as possible. The reality is that getting all of it is not easy. Plaque can hide in gum pockets and other spots that are difficult or even impossible to get to with a toothbrush or dental floss. Plaque transitions to a hardened from, then. It’s called tartar. And it is not effectively removed by at-home oral hygiene, even if you can get to it. That’s where our teeth cleaning in Midtown comes in. A trip here every six months allows for the elimination of tartar buildup, along with any remaining plaque. It’s like hitting the reset button on your dental health. But in addition to that, early stage gum disease, known as gingivitis, will have its progress halted and the effects it has caused reversed by our teeth cleaning in Midtown. In some stubborn cases, a second cleaning might be necessary to get full benefit, but you still can avoid the consequences of latter stage gum disease, including persistent bad breath, receding gums, and bleeding when you brush.
