Dental cleanings are vital if you wish to have a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile. If you are one who avoids your six month checkups, now is the time to get back on track and take better care of your oral cavity. Dentists today strongly recommend attending your dental cleanings every six months for three different reasons, which are:
1. Each time you come into our office, our dentist and dental team are able to prevent and treat every dental issue. Every cleaning eliminates the bacteria, infection, and decay in your smile, and it keeps your oral cavity healthy and strong, fighting off the harmful substances that can destroy it. Each cleaning also gives our dentist the opportunity to examine your teeth, gums, and bone as well as identify any issue you may have. Even if the problem is small, your dentist can treat it right away before it gets worse.
2. When you come in for your appointment, our hygienists will deeply clean, polish, floss, and nourish your teeth, which is a great way to give your smile the best chance at being strong and healthy. During the cleaning process, the plaque that lives on the surfaces of your teeth are scraped off with a special tool, which eliminates the risks associated with periodontal disease. This is a very important technique that can only be performed in the dental office. If you do not receive this special cleaning every six months, your smile is vulnerable to disease and decay.
3. Every appointment helps you feel more and more comfortable in the dental chair. When you come into our office, you will create strong and trusting relationships with our dental team that will help you have a positive dental experience. You will love going to the dentist’s office before you know it!
We invite you to call our office today and schedule your next dental cleaning with us. We look forward to helping you achieve your smile goals!
