We recommend our patients come into our dental office twice a year for a dental cleaning and check-up. During the business of life, it is easy to put off your routine cleanings, and many patients wonder how important they actually are.
What Cleanings Can Do for You
The benefit is twofold. Firstly, routine cleanings will remove built-up plaque that has hardened onto the sides of teeth. Regular brushing and flossing are not sufficient to remove plaque, and the build-up of plaque over time can lead to many dental issues, such as periodontal disease.
The second benefit is that it allows the dentist to conduct an exam. They can recreate a profile of your dental health and monitor your mouth for small changes between appointments.
This allows dentists to catch issues early to help mitigate and prevent them before they become even larger issues. During your check-up, the dentist may recommend things like routine x-rays to get a full picture of your dental health.
This exam can catch early cavities, signs of gum disease, and even some oral cancers.
Dental cleanings are about more than your oral health. Having a strong set of teeth and healthy gums are foundational for a strong and healthy body.
