Regular brushing and flossing are very important in effective home dental care.
Prevention and early detection are critical when it comes to taking care of your mouth and teeth. Poor oral hygiene and cleaning can lead to gingivitis, bone loss, and possibly tooth loss if not treated in a timely manner. Also unchecked or untreated tooth decay can lead to tooth pain, loss of tooth structure, need for a root canal, or could possibly even lead to the loss of a tooth. That is why teeth cleaning by your hygienist and examination by your dentist are generally recommended twice a year.
