Do I Really Need A Professional Teeth Cleaning?
Did you know that the Academy of General Dentistry recommends to have your teeth cleaned every six months?
Professional dental cleaning complements your home oral health regimen of flossing and brushing. It also allows your dentist an opportunity to locate areas in your mouth that need some medical attention.
Why It’s Important
• Early detection of oral problems: Professional dental cleanings enable the early detection of oral problems such as cavities, broken fillings, oral cancer, and gum disease. Early detection allows for the conditions to be effectively treated and reversed.
• Helps you track your dental health: Regular professional cleanings help keep track of your dental health trend. Your orthodontist can compare your previous visits with your current one and point out anything unusual.
• Keep the small problems small: Dental cleaning goes beyond maintaining peak oral health. There are some ailments such as dementia which is strongly linked to poor dental hygiene. Regular dental cleaning can help you avoid such.
• Helps you achieve a better smile: Over time, depending on your diet and oral hygiene, your teeth may discolor. Dental cleanings help remove the embarrassing and unwanted stain.
