The Lone Star State is known for its beautiful smiles, and our local Arlington TX community is no exception. Keeping your teeth clean is an important factor in maintaining your beautiful smile. One of the benefits of regularly visiting your local Arlington TX family dentist is a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing habits.
Our Arlington TX dental hygienist helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth, and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits. Our oral hygienist can also professionally clean and polish your teeth at your regular dental check up. You should schedule a regular dental check up every six months.
I am a general and cosmetic dentist and I work at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry located in Arlington TX. We specialize in family dentistry in the Arlington TX community and surrounding areas.
Cleaning your teeth is the simple task of removing plaque (a sticky deposit that gets left on teeth in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and aids in tooth decay). This is done by brushing regularly with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and flossing. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth. A regular visit to your local Arlington dental hygienist will help you stay on top of problems that can go unseen.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting your local Arlington TX dentist at least once every 6 months for a regular dental check up and teeth cleaning. These regular visits to your dentist potentially prevent the undetected development of problems that can occur from neglecting to clean your teeth.
To keep that beautiful Arlington TX smile in good shape, come in for a dental check up and teeth cleaning. We also offer a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry options. Ask us about dental implants, porcelain veneers and teeth whitening.
