Benefits of Professional Dental Cleaning
No matter how diligently a patient brushes, flosses, and uses mouth wash, they cannot always get all of the grime that is on their teeth. This tartar and plaque, if left untreated, will eventually lead to pockets of bacteria under the gums. This is going to result in an infection known as gingivitis. This gum disease could will eventually result in tooth loss and other serious health issues.
A regular dental cleaning will also help to prevent cavities and other forms of tooth decay. Plaque transforms food into acids that eat away at the surface of the teeth and could lead to cavities. During these checkups, our dentists will also offer X-rays, the only way to catch cavities in their very earliest stages.
Finally, regular cleanings will lead to a brighter and healthier smile. Many of the foods and drinks that we consume will stain teeth. Or professional cleaning will scrub away some of the deepest discoloration to give you a white smile.
