Who likes going to the dentist?  Raise your hand.  

Anyone?

Anyone?

Nobody??  Then if we don't have an active, emergent problem, why would we go?   Why is it that we are instructed to have our teeth "cleaned" every 6 months (or more often for some of us)?  Have you ever wondered WHY?  Have you ever wondered what the enemy is?  

The enemy is plaque in the form of biofilms.  Sometimes you can see and feel it but often times not (it is sneaky and loves to live below your gumline).  Your hygiene appointments are absolutely vital to your oral health.  The hygienist that works with you is skilled at identifying areas below your gumline that are accumulating and growing biofilm.  She is also trained to disrupt and remove it and in some cases, provide therapy to restore your gums to a healthy state.  That, in a nutshell, is why it is so important to schedule and then keep your appointments for your cleanings.  

Feel free to high-five Michele, Geri Jo or Kristi after your next appointment for their awesome job at de-biofilming you.  They are fantastic at what they do.

For more information about biofilm check out the article "What Is Biofilm?"  on Colgateprofessional.com.
