Benefits of Regular Dental Cleanings

 dental cleanings 
Dental cleanings are an important part of protecting not only your teeth and gums but your entire body. Here’s how scheduling regular check-ups and cleanings with your dentist can boost your well-being.

Remove Plaque

Bacteria that stays on your teeth turns into a film called plaque. This plaque can wear away at your tooth’s outer layer (enamel) and eventually harden into a tougher substance called tartar. The less plaque you have, the lower your risk of gum disease and caries (cavities).

Reduce Inflammation

Any type of inflammation in the body is unhealthy, and prolonged inflammation of the gum tissue can lead to disease.

You can prevent gingivitis and its more severe counterpart, periodontitis, by scheduling dental cleanings twice a year.

During a cleaning, your dentist will check your gums for signs of inflammation and irritation; they will also make sure your gum line isn’t receding, which can occur from actions like smoking, aggressive brushing, and teeth grinding.

Freshen Bad Breath

Do you have a case of halitosis? It can occur when bacteria accumulate in the mouth. Some people have more bacteria due to dental hygiene, diet, and lifestyle habits.

Regular cleanings get deep between your teeth and thoroughly cleanse your gums, ensuring your mouth is healthy. You’ll likely notice fresher-smelling breath, too.

Receive an Oral Cancer Screening

Dentists are trained to check their patient’s entire head and mouth during an exam. They will do so to check for potential warning signs of oral cancer, which may show up in early stages as swollen neck lymph nodes, mouth ulcers, bad breath, and pain in the jaw, ears, mouth, or face.


How Often Should You Schedule Dental Cleanings?

The American Dental Association recommends having your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice per year.

Are There Different Types of Dental Cleanings?

There are several types of dental cleanings depending on your needs, such as preventive cleaning, scaling and root planing, and deep cleaning.

Is a Deep Dental Cleaning Necessary?

Deep cleanings are recommended for patients with gum disease, tooth decay, and significant plaque or tartar buildup.
