We all know how important it is to brush our teeth on a regular basis, but do you keep up with all of the things involved in a complete oral hygiene regiment? It is recommended that everyone brush their teeth twice a day, floss daily and use an anti bacterial mouth rinse regularly, and while these things are important to do to keep your teeth and gums healthy from day to day, there is still more that you can do to keep them healthy from year to year. A professional dental cleaning
is recommended for patients of all kinds, and Todd D Wortman, DDS
is here in Pelham to provide you with your routine dental cleaning.
Oral hygiene is key to oral health. Plaque and other bacteria build up in your mouth as you eat and drink every day. All of these different kinds of bacteria are harmful to your teeth and

gums. This is why brushing is important. Brushing twice a day helps clean a lot of daily plaque buildup. Flossing daily can help get rid of even more plaque from between your teeth and a mouth wash can help kill even more bacteria. While all of this is helpful, these activities can only do so much. This is why a professional dental cleaning is important. It is recommended that patients have their teeth professionally cleaned about once every six months. A routine dental cleaning here with Todd D Wortman, DDS at our dental offices in Pelham
can help get rid of more stubborn plaque buildup that your toothbrush or dental floss just cannot handle. Even though a dental cleaning is thorough, it is also gentle, so you will not have to worry about discomfort or pain. A regular dental cleaning can help make sure that your teeth are as clean as possible between dental visits and can help prevent the development of tooth decay and gum disease.
