Most people treat their teeth and mouth very much like you would treat a used car. Other than keeping gas in the tank and changing the oil once every few thousand miles, the care receives very little maintenance. It’s not until the car generates a problem that you take it to the shop. Usually the problem could have been prevented much earlier but, when left unattended, ends up being costly and expensive. This is why regular teeth cleanings help strengthen your teeth and help prevent cavities.
