The Importance of Dental Cleanings

Are you coming in for a cleaning every 6 months? If not, you need to start scheduling regular dental cleanings with your dentist! Cleanings are for more than making your teeth look nice and shiny. Getting a regular dental cleaning can significantly help your health! Here are some of the reasons why dental cleanings are so important:

  • Cosmetics
    • A regular cleaning can remove stains from your teeth. This helps your teeth look healthy, white and shiny. Dental Hygienists can also help to recommend the best toothpaste and toothbrush to keep your smile happy and healthy.
  • Gum disease
    • Teeth cleanings help to prevent gum disease. Gum disease has a strong correlation with heart disease, as you take care of your gums you are also taking care of your heart. 
  • Oral cancer 
    • A regular cleaning can detect oral cancer early on. The earlier it is caught the easier it is to fight and treat it. 
  • Dental Health
    • Dental Cleanings help detect any further dental problems. Broken fillings, decay, broken teeth, and so many more things. They also help prevent plaque buildup on your teeth.
    • Most dental insurances include a regular cleaning. Coming in and using your coverage will save you money in the long run.
