Are you doing all you can to keep yourself free of the harmful effects of periodontal disease and tooth decay? Is your smile as healthy as it could and should be? It is easier to do all this than you may think. The first step is to schedule an appointment here at the Dental Center of Harvard for a Harvard teeth cleaning. The root cause of so many dental issues is the buildup of harmful bacteria like tartar and plaque. These bacteria release acids that eat away at the enamel of your teeth and cause cavities, and also inflame and infect your gums and cause periodontal disease. The goal of each Harvard teeth cleaning is to most thoroughly remove these bacteria and therefore to prevent these difficult issues from happening to you! Some examples of the deep cleaning methods we commonly use during a Harvard teeth cleaning here at the Dental Center of Harvard include: scaling, root planing, debridement, polishing, and more. BY coming in for a full Harvard teeth cleaning at least once a year, you are giving yourself a great defense against decay and periodontal disease—but by all means, do not stop there. Make sure that you are also doing yourself the right service by properly cleaning your teeth and gums at home. This means brushing and flossing thoroughly each day, and avoiding foods and drinks that can damage your teeth and your overall dental health, like sweets, sodas, and other similar choices.
