Why you should not miss your dental cleaning visits

Those bi-yearly dental cleanings creep up fast. And sometimes you are just too busy to even respond or schedule your visit. But dental cleanings are not just there to keep your teeth pearly white and healthy. These routine visits allow your dentist the time to examine your teeth, gums, mouth and to ensure that teeth are doing well, but that your overall health is where it should be.

5 Reasons to always make your dental cleaning visits

#1 Tooth Decay & Cavities

One of the most important aspects of your dental cleanings is the examination of your teeth and their health. Dentists and hygienists can closely inspect soft spots, cracks, decay and much more than we ever see on our own.

#2 Bad Breath

The buildup of plaque and bacteria over time will eventually begin to omit odors from your teeth and gums, causing bad breath that is hard to remedy without a trip to the dentist.

#3 Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is a serious issue and only a dentist or trained dental hygienist knows what to look for when examining your mouth and gums. Keeping your bi-annual dental visits will help keep oral cancer from developing and going unnoticed.

#4 Overall Health

Having poor oral hygiene can easily cause health factors in the rest of your body and having your dentist regularly check your teeth and gums will help give peace of mind for your future health and can also help check issues before they become serious. Poor oral hygiene has been associated with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attacks.


All of these reasons are extremely important but leaving your dental chair with professionally cleaned, flossed, and examined teeth feels so good. And you can tell the difference the second your cleaning is over.
