Around March and April each year, people around the nation begin thinking about cleaning and airing out the house after winter. After a few months of basic cleaning, it starts to feel like it’s time for a deep cleaning. Those hard to reach places like the baseboards and windows are in desperate need of a wipe down and the floors and bathrooms could use a deeper clean than normal for all those easy to miss spots.
The same holds true for your mouth. Throughout the year, we clean them daily and hopefully twice a day, but there’s no way to reach every single nook and cranny with just a toothbrush and floss. That’s where your biannual professional dental cleaning comes in. It’s important to keep up with these appointments because a thorough cleaning helps prevent plaque build-up and keeps things looking and feeling great.
It’s safe to say that few people look forward coming to the dentist. But for some, the idea of a visit to the dentist creates such fear and anxiety, that they may not go at all until they find themselves in severe pain. As a dental professional, Dr. Abelar understands these feelings and offers options for his patients that experience anxiety.
