Many people we meet feel that teeth cleaning appointments aren’t important. Actually, these preventative procedures are highly necessary – not just for your dental health, but for your overall health. That is why we recommend that our patients visit their affordable dentist and hygienist for regular examinations and cleanings.
6 Reasons Why It Is Important to Invest In Regular Teeth Cleaning Appointments
There are six reasons why we recommend regular teeth cleaning appointments.
- Prevent Advanced Decay
When we see our patients regularly, we keep an eye out for decay. This means we can catch decay early, before it warrants root canal treatment or extraction.
- Prevent and/or Treat Periodontal Disease
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. Prevent bad breath, loose teeth, bone loss, and tooth loss with regular dental cleanings.
- Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease
There has been evidence for years now that heart disease and gum disease are related. The inflammation and bacteria affecting the gums also affect the heart. Regular cleanings reduce this risk.
- Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes
Recent studies have linked gum disease and diabetes. Regular cleanings can help prevent a rise in blood sugar levels.
- Catch Soft Tissue Diseases/Issues Early
Our dental staff is trained to look for soft tissue abnormalities, particularly oral cancer. Catching these early will give you the best chance of effective treatment.
- A Sparkling Smile
When our patients come in for a teeth cleaning, they leave with a healthy, sparkling smile. Cleanings remove surface stains that make your teeth look lackluster and dark.
