6 great reasons to have your teeth professionally cleaned...
To prevent gum disease
When bacteria-filled film (plaque) adheres to your teeth, it causes a bacterial infection known as gum disease. Plaque hardens when it builds up on teeth and becomes tartar. These toxins irritate the gums and cause gingivitis and inflammation. If this bacteria is not removed, the inflammation can continue - destroying gum tissue and potentially leading to gum disease
To keep your teeth
Teeth can actually loosen and eventually fall out as gum disease advances. Plaque moves further down the tooth root and ends up destroying the supporting bone. Regular exams and cleaning help prevent gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Regular exams, brushing and flossing are extremely important to keeping your teeth.
To have a brighter smile
Drinking Coffee, tea and other beverages as well as smoking – can cause tooth staining. Certain medications can also discolor teeth. Teeth cleaning by your dentist or hygienist, however, can often remove these external stains – and it promotes good oral health.
To prevent bad breath
Persistent bad breath (halitosis) has oral causes such as poor oral hygiene, periodontal disease, a coating on the surface of the tongue, food stuck between teeth, unclean dentures, oral carcinomas or throat infections. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing many of these conditions and can, in turn, prevent bad breath.
To help maintain overall health
Did you know a dental cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy could possibly reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke? In addition, if you have regular oral examinations, your dentist may be the first health care provider to diagnose a health problem in its early stages.
To make the most of your dental benefits
Most Dental plans have low or no copays/coinsurance for routine preventive care such as dental cleanings and checkups every six months. Taking advantage of your benefits will help you save money in the long run by avoiding more costly dental procedures.
