Why are Regular Dental Cleanings Important?
Regular dental cleanings by a dentist or oral hygienist promote good oral health and reduces the risk of gum disease. No matter how thoroughly you brush and floss your teeth, your toothbrush cannot reach all the areas in your mouth. Dentists and oral hygienists have special instruments that allow them to access the hard to reach spots you may miss at home. Brushing and flossing at home can help to remove plaque build up, but cannot get rid of tartar. Dental hygienists are able to carefully remove tartar during cleanings as well as polish the teeth to remove surface stains caused by food and beverage.
Regular dental cleanings help lower your risk of cavities and gum disease. Maintaining good oral health by getting regular dental cleanings can also reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke as recent studies have shown that heart attacks and strokes can be linked to gum disease caused by poor oral health. It is recommended to schedule a dental cleaning every six months to maintain good oral health. Regular dental cleanings also allow dentists to detect problems early on and develop a treatment plan before the issue becomes severe.
More frequent cleanings or deep cleaning may be recommended to patients with periodontal disease or tendency to build up plaque.
