Even the most diligent brusher will miss plaque and tartar buildup, that’s why staying on top of your biannual dental cleaning and exam is paramount! They say disease begins in the mouth with good reason — many illnesses show manifestations in the mouth. Decay that is not removed develops into gum disease which is connected to a variety of serious health issues such as diabetes, heart problems, stroke, and complications with childbirth.
The American Dental Association recommends getting a professional teeth cleaning twice a year, once every six months. Taking preventive measures when it comes to your oral health care will save you time, money, and stress! Getting timely dental x-rays will also help find tumors, bone loss, cysts, deep decay, and provide a closer look at the roots of the teeth.
Your twice yearly dental cleaning appointments are also a time for oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatments, and the time to check and/or repair existing dental devices. Dental health and having a fresh, bright smile go hand-in-hand! Having your teeth professionally polished and cleaned will remove the buildup that can dull your smile.
