The Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings

Schedule your dental visit today

Why are routine dental visits so important? I brush my teeth every day. Why do I need a dental cleaning? The fact is that your dental hygienist can clean your teeth in places you can not, including below the gumline.  Your hygienist can remove buildup of plaque and tartar that your toothbrush alone can not. Regular visits to your dental hygienist are important in prevention as well as treatment of gum disease. Your gums are healthier when your hygienist keeps them free of plaque and tartar.

Your oral health is key component of your overall health.  If you have poor oral health, it can put additional stress on your body.  It is normal to have bacteria in your mouth and regular oral healthcare helps keep that bacteria at healthy levels.  Without proper oral hygiene, the bacteria can reach levels that are unhealthy and cause tooth decay, inflammation and infection. Science supports a connection between oral health and heart health. 

Regular trips to your family dentist can prevent tooth loss. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss so visiting your dental hygienist to prevent or treat gum disease is important. If you do have a dental concern such as a cavity, diagnosing and treating the problem early can prevent further damage, avoid a painful toothache, and save you money in the long run.
