The Biggest Benefits of Having a Professional Teeth Cleaning

dca-blog_dental-hygienist-and-cleaning-face

If you want to keep your smile bright and healthy, and improve your general health, you should see your dental hygienist at least once a year. Practicing good oral hygiene at home is important, but professional teeth cleaning removes the plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing misses. Inadequate oral hygiene is associated with a variety of serious health problems such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, bone loss, infection, and more. Regular dental cleanings can help reduce your risk of developing these serious conditions. Here are the top reasons to schedule appointments with your dental hygienist.

Your Teeth and Your Health

A strong link has been found between gum disease and cardiovascular disease, so getting your teeth cleaned regularly actually reduces your chances of suffering heart attacks and strokes. You can also avoid a late diagnosis of oral cancer. When detected early through routine exams, the disease is highly curable. Your gums even reflect the condition of your general health; early signs of diabetes, leukemia, and anemia may be found by your dentist instead of your doctor.

Financial Considerations

During a professional teeth cleaning, your dentist may identify multiple dental problems. He or she can then devise a treatment plan and work with you on financial arrangements. If your dental insurance plan covers regular cleanings, taking advantage of this can help you save money on future dental bills.

Keeping Your Smile Healthy

Having your teeth cleaned dramatically impacts your oral health. When your dentist or dental hygienist detects early signs of tooth or gum disease, you can act quickly, and prevent future tooth loss. When caught early, gum disease is very treatable and can often be reversed before serious damage occurs. Your dental team can also detect problems like broken or fractured teeth and newly forming cavities. Professional teeth cleaning has cosmetic value, too. A dental hygienist can remove tooth stains caused by coffee, tea or tobacco. Regular cleaning prevents and treats bad breath. If you maintain great oral hygiene at home and schedule regular cleanings, your chances of keeping your natural teeth and enjoying better health throughout life are much higher.
