Dr. Stevens has been practicing dentistry over 21 years and has found that seventy five percent of the patients that do not get regular 6 month teeth cleanings have gum problems. Bacteria that is present in everyone’s mouth feed on left over food that people miss from brushing their teeth. Once fed, the bacteria start to eat the gum and bone tissue around the teeth. By getting regular teeth cleanings and careful brushing and flossing daily, you are dramatically reducing the chance of having gum and bone loss around your teeth. Don’t put off your teeth cleanings. It is the best investment you can possibly do for your health. Call Dr. Stevens office for current specials on teeth cleanings, oral exams and x -rays.
