The Importance of Hygiene Visits
Plaque is sticky and accumulates in all the hard-to-reach places in your mouth. No matter how attentive you are to brushing and flossing, some bit of plaque remains, developing into even more difficult-to-remove tartar. Tartar deposits form not only on the surface of teeth but below the gumline. If not removed, excess tartar can lead to gum disease, which in turn can develop into more serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. A dental hygienist can see and remove the plaque and tartar that lurks around your teeth and below your gumline. Visiting your hygienist is one of the best things you can do for your overall health.
