How Often Do I Need a Dental Cleaning?

July 24, 2020

Why Is It Important to Get Your Teeth Cleaned?

Your at-home daily dental health regime probably consists of flossing, brushing your teeth, and using mouth wash twice a day. Although this is a great way to maintain your oral health in between dentist visits, it doesn’t take away the power of a dentist visit. Professional cleaning removes plaque, yellowish build-up, and calculus that our toothbrush can’t get to. Also during your cleaning, dentists can spot signs of oral cancer, anemia, or other medical problems.

Bacteria that live on your teeth can eventually lead to cavities or gum disease. Gum disease is linked to your cardiovascular health, so catching any illness early can help lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. Getting your teeth cleaned by a professional will lower the risk of bacteria build-up!
