Remove Plaque, Tartar and Stains this Spring with a Boise Teeth Cleaning

Remove Plaque, Tartar and Stains this Spring with a Boise Teeth Cleaning

Spring is officially here, and many of us are working on decluttering our homes and crowded closets. With summer soon approaching, Summit Dental wants to remind you that spring cleaning isn’t just for your home, it’s for your teeth too!

Visiting your Boise dentist for a professional teeth cleaning should be an important part of your annual spring cleaning routine. Professional teeth cleanings done twice a year help to prevent common dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease. During a professional Boise teeth cleaning, our main goal is to remove any tartar buildup from your teeth and below the gumline.

While brushing and flossing regularly at home will help to reduce plaque buildup, missed spots of plaque here and there easily turn into tartar, which your at-home toothbrush can’t remove. Therefore, you need to see your Boise dentist at Summit Dental Group to have the tartar properly removed form your teeth.

A professional teeth cleaning with routine exams help to boost your at-home dental hygiene routine and provides your Boise dentist with a chance to examine your mouth more closely to ensure there aren’t any problems that have gone undetected.

On top of providing you with a squeaky clean mouth, your Boise dentist will make sure your oral health is in check while providing you with an opportunity to talk with them about any concerns you may have. Regular Boise dental exams and cleanings help your dentist to better understand your oral habits, allowing them to suggest changes in order to improve your overall health. Take time for yourself and your teeth this spring by scheduling a Boise teeth cleaning appointment at Summit Dental to keep your smile healthy!
