How Professional Dental Cleanings Safeguard Your Smile
When it comes to your oral health, preventive measures are key to keeping your smile strong and beautiful for life.
Regular professional dental cleanings and checkups are not only important for maintaining good oral hygiene and avoiding potential dental issues, they also help ensure that any developing problems are caught before they become more serious and damaging to your dental and overall well-being.
What are some of the main benefits of professional teeth cleanings?
While there are myriad benefits associated with professional teeth cleanings, one of the most significant is that they remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth, and tartar is plaque that’s hardened over time. If not removed, plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay. Undergoing regular in-office cleanings helps ensure that both are removed from teeth and that a patient’s oral health is prioritized.
In addition, professional cleanings also help prevent gum disease, which is an infection of the gums that can lead to tooth loss. By removing bacteria from your mouth, you can effectively reduce your risk of developing this oral condition.
How often should a professional cleaning be performed?
It’s recommended that teeth cleanings be conducted every six months, but our team may recommend more or less frequent visits depending on your unique oral health condition.
