About Teeth Cleaning
Regular teeth cleaning is an integral part of maintaining your oral health and a beautiful smile. Over time, your teeth can accumulate mineralized deposits called plaque, which if left on the teeth, can erode tooth enamel and lead to gum disease. Since brushing and flossing alone cannot remove all of these deposits, most experts recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for professional teeth cleaning to maintain optimal oral health.
The specialized tools utilized in professional teeth cleaning and your dentist’s trained eye can ensure that plaque is removed from the surface of your teeth before it can inflict damage. Regular dentist visits can also give you fresher breath, since your dentist can clean those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth that often trap odor-causing bacteria. And professional teeth cleaning can also remove stains left behind by certain foods and beverages like coffee or tea.
Professional Teeth Cleaning Benefits Your Overall Health
Maintaining a healthy smile gives you a sense of confidence and well-being, but it is also vitally important to your overall health. Bacteria that accumulates in the mouth can make its way into the bloodstream, which can increase your risk of heart attack or stroke. Also, if a decayed tooth is allowed to fester, it may eventually become infected. That bacterial infection can spread to the rest of the body and lead to a deadly condition called sepsis. Additionally, poor oral health is also linked to diabetes and dementia. Therefore, keeping up with your regular teeth cleaning appointments not only gives you a brighter smile, but it is also an important step for a healthier you.
