You take good care of your teeth. You brush multiple times per day, you floss regularly, and you do everything you can to make sure that your oral care is a priority. But are you really doing everything that you should to make sure you’re taking your teeth seriously? If you’re not getting in to see the dentist on a regular basis, your teeth might not be as healthy as you’re hoping. The truth is that many adults don’t go to the dentist nearly often enough.

When you were a child, your parents faithfully scheduled your dental appointments and made sure that you stayed on top of your brushing and flossing. Your teeth stayed in pretty good shape because of the constant care that your parents enforced. Now that you’re an adult, you can’t let these good dental habits fall by the wayside. Our dentists recommend that you get a dental cleaning once every six months to make sure that you don’t have plaque build-up, cavities, or even something more serious.

There are certain dental problems that can get worse over time and can even lead to serious issues throughout the rest of the body. Additionally, there are a number of physical conditions that first start to reveal themselves in the mouth. If you’re not getting regular cleanings, the chances of these things being discovered goes way down. Make sure that you schedule regular dental cleanings at Yonge Eglinton Dental Care so that you can have confidence in the state of your oral hygiene.
