    Teeth Cleanings are Critical To Your Oral Health

    A healthy mouth begins with taking great care of your teeth at home using a toothbrush, floss and mouthwash. But it’s only part of the secret to a successful routine. A visit to the dentist for a professional cleaning is recommended twice a year and is important to truly ensure your mouth stays vibrant, healthy and germ free.

    A cleaning by your dentist will use professional tools to ensure the removal of plaque, tartar and any bacteria build-up that can form over time and you may not be able to efficiently clean yourself at home. A dental cleaning will help protect your mouth from tooth decay, gingivitis or other easily avoidable conditions.

    Maintaining Dental Hygiene

    Why It’s Important to Keep Your Teeth Clean At All Ages

    Besides a beautiful white smile, there are many practical reasons to keep your teeth clean. A clean mouth will help prevent cavities and help to reduce plaque, which is an acidic substance that eats away at the tooth enamel. Clean teeth also helps prevent tooth loss by protecting your gums from gum disease, which often starts with a build-up of plaque on your gums. As the gums become infected, it can cause damage to the bones in your jaw, which can often cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. If you enjoy coffee, tea wine, or smoke, a dental cleaning will help remove build-up stains, thus helping to ensure you have a brighter smile. Clean teeth are also key to having fresh breath and avoiding the dreaded halitosis.

    Did we mention that the cleaner your teeth are, the more money you’ll likely save? Having your teeth professionally cleaned can allow you address any tooth or gum concerns before they become more serious (and expensive) endeavors. Finally…studies have shown a connection between one’s oral health, and the health of their entire body. Quite often, life-threatening conditions can be detected in the early stages during a routine visit to your dentist.

    Today was my first time visiting this dentist office in hopes of getting my wisdom tooth removed as it’s been bothering me for last two weeks. The front desk lady, the dentist helper and the dr were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a new dentist to check them out. I already have my second appointment scheduled next month to get some more dental work done. Thank you for taking care of my dental needs today!
