Healthy teeth are required for a strong, beautiful smile. Some aesthetic issues with teeth cannot be avoided, but oral health is entirely a personal choice. Failure to take care of your teeth and gums can result in aesthetic issues such as staining and discoloration, but also in issues including:
- Periodontal disease
- Tooth loss
- Persistent bad breath
Fortunately, taking care of your teeth is incredibly simple and requires almost no time at all. How to Care for Your Teeth Proper tooth care begins at home. Brushing and flossing after every meal or at least twice a day is the easiest way to keep your mouth clean and healthy. In addition to your at-home routine, you should visit one of the Calgary dentists at Aesthetic Dental Studio every six months for a thorough, professional tooth cleaning. The cleanings offered by our dentists are able to remove hard to reach plaque and tartar. This buildup often cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. Professional teeth cleanings are essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong. As an additional benefit, during your biannual visits to our office, we will be able to detect potential dental issues and provide treatment before they become serious problems. Your examination may include x-rays and other diagnostics to make sure every part of your mouth is functioning properly. If you live in or around Calgary, Alberta, Northwest Calgary, or Airdrie and need a dental cleaning, please contact the dentists at Aesthetic Dental Studio to schedule an appointment today.
