Achieving beautiful esthetics results is only half the battle; your teeth must be cared for and checked regularly to achieve the most successful and long-lasting results. Daily home cleaning helps control plaque and tartar formation, but those hard to reach areas will always need special attention. The time interval for these professional cleanings will be determined by your individual needs, usually 2 to 4 times a year. At these cleaning appointments, the pocket depths will be carefully checked to ensure that they are healthy.
Special attention and care should be given for your dental implant restorations. Dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar just as teeth can and are more susceptible to disease. Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, professional cleanings will be necessary to keep your implants healthy.
Good oral hygiene practices and periodontal cleanings are essential in maintaining dental health and keeping periodontal disease under control!
