My age is 26. I cleaned my teeth recently in clinic for the first time and I don't want to clean it every year because it creates teeth gap and damages to the teeth. Can better care avoid me to go to the clinic again?

Getting teeth cleaned every 6 months is just like you taking a professional care of your face, hair etc. Cleaning dosnt create gaps. Cleaning removes tartar from inbetween the teeth and if you maintain that cleaniness your gum will fill up that triangular gap. -care all you need is two times brushing -interdental cleaning -tongue cleaning -restrict in between meals -decrease the frequency of sugar intake -rinse your mouth everytime you have something even after all this you might be needing a professional cleaning once a year because after you have your meal their is a deposition of a layer on your teeth which is called plaque. That plaque if not removed turns into calculus (tartar) professional cleaning remoces tartar.
