Even for those who have the best routines when it comes to your teeth, professional teeth cleaning is vital. Good oral hygiene will save you money and keep your teeth looking and feeling better for longer. These are SS Cosmetic Dentistry five reasons why you need to make professional teeth cleaning part of your routine from now on.
1. Professional teeth cleaning helps remove plaque and tartar
No matter how thorough you are, over time there will be some build-up of plaque and tartar from natural bacteria and the minerals in your saliva. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day – and not forgetting to floss and use mouthwash – will help. But once plaque hardens to the dental calcium and forms tartar, it can’t be removed without professional help. If left untreated, it can eat away at your teeth, leaving them weak and susceptible to other dental problems. Having your teeth professionally cleaned can remove this, and keep your teeth looking and feeling clean for much longer.
2. It helps prevent gum disease
Fact – most adults will have some degree of gum disease at some point in their life. Gum disease causes bad breath, painful swelling and bleeding, which left undetected or untreated can spell out trouble for your smile. This is just one reason why it’s important to have regular professional appointments with a hygienist. During your treatment, the dentist will help remove the deposits that go to creating the perfect environment for gum disease. Regular, short appointments for professional cleaning can help to prevent the onset of far bigger future concerns, making this essential for your dental care.
3. It can save you from future issues
You know what they say about prevention? It’s better than cure. This is especially true when it comes to your teeth because fixing dental problems can be notoriously painful and expensive. Regular check-ups with your dentist helps spot potential problems early on. During your professional dental cleaning, your dentist can detect early signs of problems such as broken fillings and fractures. This means your dentist can tackle any issues early on, saving money and bigger issues developing.
4. Hello brighter smile!
We all want that Hollywood smile and a session with SS Cosmetic Dentistry can bring you a step closer to feeling like a movie star.
