Dental Cleanings: Not particularly harmful, but may be prevented by meticulous home care including flossing. Your diet and smoking can also contribute to excessive buildup. Discuss with your dentist.

Take good advice: Get your teeth cleaned when your dentist tells you to. Do not let your insurance coverage be your guide. Preservation of tooth equals preservation of youth - so do everything possible to keep your teeth healthy!
