The face of oral health is changing as new information and technology sheds new light on the subject. The truth is that you cannot maintain proper oral health on your own. This is not to say that you should discontinue brushing and flossing, but you should know that it takes more than that to guarantee your oral health. Only a Centennial dentist can make sure that your teeth stay as healthy as possible.

There’s even a myth that if you rinse with fluoride mouth rinses, you can blast tartar straight from your mouth. But this is just a myth. Tartar is a hardened form of plaque that stubbornly sticks to the enamel of your teeth. Only a Centennial dentist can scrape off the disease causing substance. Trying to do it on your own can lead to infections and further health problems.

Aspen Springs Family Dental suggests that you see the dentist once or twice a year in order to properly deal with tartar. They offer convenient appointment times and even set aside two appointments a day for emergencies. Call them today if it’s been a while since your last visit. Don’t wait to deal with tartar.
