You do not have to clean all your teeth, just the ones you want to keep! Good oral health is the epitome of great overall health. You know, as they say, you are what you eat- they are not entirely wrong. The particles from the food and beverages you eat can linger in your mouth, welcoming bacteria and oral health problems unless properly “flushed out” or cleaned. Even if you maintain good dental hygiene, professional dental cleaning is inevitable.
