Why should I get regular dental cleanings?
For those with healthy, strong, teeth and gums, dental cleanings are generally recommended twice per year. Many people believe that this is simply to keep their teeth pearly white, and it is true that professional cleanings will enhance your smile. However, the benefits of regular dental cleanings go far beyond simple appearance.
There is a strong link between poor oral health and deteriorating physical health. In fact, those with untreated dental disease are at a much higher risk for a stroke or heart attack. Regular cleanings ensure that any new cavities, gum disease, or other issues are caught and treated quickly before they become serious.
In addition, at your regular appointments, we will thoroughly check for other potential health concerns, such as TMJ, swollen lymph nodes in the neck, and changes that could indicate oral cancer. Regular cleanings are a quick and easy way to ensure that your mouth, head, and neck are in excellent shape.
