Brushing and flossing twice a day keeps your teeth healthy. Sometimes however, this is not enough. A professional dental cleaning once a year will work even better to keep your teeth clean, healthy, and brighter. If you have not had a dental cleaning this year, below are some of the reasons why you should schedule a dental visit and have your teeth taken care of.
Having your teeth professionally cleaned will leave you with a much brighter smile. Naturally, teeth are discolored by many substances including tea, coffee, wine, and tobacco among others. Tooth brushing alone may not be able to remove all these stains. With time, your teeth may begin to dull in appearance. A dental hygienist will be able to remove these stains in one cleaning session.
A professional dental cleaning also prevents gum disease which is the leading cause of tooth loss. It will also enable your dentist identify potential signs or problems that may be preventing if detected early. These include fractures, broken fillings, and even oral cancers. We can avoid most of these problems with early detection. Even oral cancers can be mitigated and treated if they are detected in the early stages. The dentist will also be able to compare the state of your oral health.
Another reason to schedule a dental cleaning is to prevent and eliminate halitosis. Commonly known as bad breath, this can be a very embarrassing and debilitating condition. However, it is easily treatable. Seeing a dentist once or twice a year for a regular-check up and cleaning is therefore invaluable. If you think you may require dental cleaning, please schedule an appointment with Reese Dental at Lake County.
Our dental hygienist will perform an oral examination to ensure your teeth are free of any signs of gingivitis or any other issues. If there is any issue, our dentists will always be at hand to resolve before proceeding.
The next step is the removal of plague or tartar in between the teeth and around the gum-line using a scaler. After this, a powerful electric toothbrush and professional toothpaste will remove any residual tartar.
After that, your teeth will get a rinse and flossing before fluoride treatment. This fluoride treatment will help you keep cavities at bay for months afterward. Dental cleaning is a simple usually painless procedure.
