Top 7 Reasons to Have Your Teeth Cleaned!

Proper oral hygiene is important not only for your appearance, but also for your overall health. Improper oral hygiene may lead to infection, gum disease, bone and tooth loss, circulation and cardiovascular disease, and even strokes.

Why is cleaning part of good oral hygiene?

  1. Good Oral Health: During dental cleanings, the hygienist can let you know if you're maintaining good oral health, and make appropriate suggestions if you're not.

  2. Early Detection of Dental Problems: Any possible problems can be detected during dental cleanings, allowing for proper and timely treatment. Minor problems such as cavities or early gum disease can be treated and do not have to become major problems.

  3. Keeping Your Teeth: Regular dental cleanings, along with check ups, brushing, and flossing, are important to let you keep your own teeth for as long as possible, and helping you to maintain your normal chewing function and overall good health.
