Why it is Important to Keep Your Teeth Clean
Besides a beautiful white smile, there are many practical reasons to keep your teeth clean. A clean mouth will help prevent cavities and help to reduce plaque, which is an acidic substance that eats away at the tooth enamel. Clean teeth also helps prevent tooth loss by protecting your gums from gum disease, which often starts with a build-up of plaque on your gums. As the gums become infected, it can cause damage to the bones in your jaw, which can often cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. If you enjoy coffee, tea wine, or smoke, a dental cleaning will help remove build-up stains, thus helping to ensure you have a brighter smile. Clean teeth are also key to having fresh breath and avoiding the dreaded halitosis.
