Poor dental hygiene can develop into more serious health problems such as gingivitis, periodontal disease and even contribute to heart disease. Klement Family Dental can improve your oral health with regular professional cleanings. The American Dental Association recommends that teeth be cleaned professionally twice a year. In some cases, you may need more frequent cleanings. For example, if you have significant tartar buildup or if you have gum disease, you may need more frequent cleanings.
