9 Reasons to Have a Dental Cleaning

 

 

Good oral hygiene is important, not only for looks, but for general health as well. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, bone loss, heart disease, strokes and more. Following, are ten important reasons to maintain our recommended schedule of dental cleanings.

1. To Screen for Oral Cancer
When you have your dental cleaning, we also screen you for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.

2. To Help Prevent Gum Disease
Gum disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can be treated and/or reversed. If treatment is not received, a more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may follow. Regular dental cleanings and check ups, flossing daily and brushing twice a day are key factors in preventing gum disease.

3. To Help Maintain Good Physical Health
Recent studies have linked heart attacks and stroke to gum disease, resulting from poor oral hygiene. Regular dental cleanings every 6 months help to keep your teeth and gums healthy and could possibly reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.

4. To Keep Your Teeth
Since gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults, regular dental check ups, cleanings, and brushing and flossing are vital to keeping as many teeth as you can. Keeping your teeth means better chewing function and ultimately, better health.

5. To Detect Dental Problems Early
Early detection of cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available.

6. To Maintain Good Oral Health
A visit to us will help to ensure that you are maintaining your good oral health by allowing us to visually examine your mouth and compare your previous dental check ups. If you are falling off track with your oral hygiene, we will gently help put you back on the right path.

 

7. To Create a Treatment Plan
If we diagnose any problems in your mouth, we will recommend a treatment plan. This treatment plan will have the cost of each procedure that you will need, so that we can discuss financial aspect of getting your mouth healthy again.

8. To Have a Bright and White Smile
We can remove most tobacco, coffee and tea stains. During your cleaning, we will also polish your teeth to a beautiful shine. The result? A whiter and brighter smile!

9. To Prevent Bad Breath
Dental studies show that about 85 percent of people with persistent bad breath, also known as halitosis have a dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath, and regular check ups and cleanings are the best way to make sure that you are maintaining good oral hygiene.
