Who should consider dental cleaning and prevention?
Everyone should consider having dental cleaning and preventative work on a regular basis. Good dental hygiene and detection of any problems early on can help you avoid more serious issues later, such as gum disease or tooth decay. This does not mean that you should not continue to take care of your teeth at home. As well as cleaning your teeth carefully you should always watch out for any signs of inflammation of the gums, damage to the teeth or possible oral disease.
