Why Are Teeth Cleanings Important For Adults?

As a kid, it was easy to get to the dentist twice a year for semi-annual teeth cleanings. Usually, your parents would take you, and sometimes you even got to leave school early. As an adult, however, getting a professional cleaning can feel like a chore. If you have let your professional cleaning schedule fall by the wayside, you may be putting yourself at risk for periodontal disease, also known as tooth and gum disease. This unpleasant disease is linked to all sorts of other diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Periodontal disease is being continually studied, but one thing is known for sure. Excellent oral hygiene, including your semi-annual deep cleaning, is the best way to avoid periodontal disease.
