The best way to prevent excessive plaque buildup is to schedule a professional cleaning with a Thorncliffe Overlea dentist or dental hygienist every six months. Plaque that is left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning lasts about 30 minutes and will usually include scaling and polishing.
At Thorncliffe Overlea Dentists, our professional cleanings will help you to preserve your teeth and gums. While having a cavity filled may seem uncomfortable, compared to root canal therapy or tooth extractions, it is much less painful. If you have not scheduled your next professional cleaning, contact us today and avoid the cost and discomfort of extensive dental restorations.
