Aside from these issues, you may also have trouble eating certain foods if you have poor oral hygiene, which can lead to malnutrition and a hinder your well-being. By maintaining good oral hygiene, you will also avoid embarrassment of bad breath and unattractive or missing teeth.

Deep Teeth Cleaning

Deep teeth cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a procedure used to treat gum disease (the primary cause of tooth loss in adults over age 40). Most Ardmore dentists recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned at least once every 12 to 24 months, or more frequently if you have any oral problems.

If its time for your routine cleaning and you live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, please contact Philadelphia Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Lindsey Marshall to arrange your deep cleaning appointment.
