Dentist In Durham, NC
Keeping your teeth healthy doesn't necessarily change their worn or yellowed appearance. However, regular cleanings can improve your dental health. Learn more about cleanings and teeth whitening with Thomas Clifton, DDS in Durham, NC.
Regular Teeth Cleanings
Regular cleanings take place at your dentist’s office every six months. These important appointments benefit your oral health by removing all the plaque and tartar on your teeth. Additionally, regular cleanings allow your dentist to examine your teeth and mouth to spot any abnormalities or dental conditions. An examination twice a year can mean the difference between conservative and more complex or invasive treatments.
Regular Dental Examinations
Seeing your dentist twice yearly can truly benefit your oral health. However, keeping up with your oral care routine between dental visits will keep your teeth healthy and clean. Brush twice daily for at least two minutes. Floss once using a new strand of floss for each quarter of your mouth. This, coupled with regular dental examinations, will help keep your teeth, mouth and oral tissues stay in tip-top shape, free of decay and gum disease.
