Patients are encouraged to have routine teeth cleanings to promote a healthy mouth and body.
Routine dental cleanings help to reduce plaque and tartar build-up, keeping the teeth and gums healthy. Teeth cleanings are the cornerstone of any lasting healthy smile.
Teeth cleanings performed by your dental hygienist reach areas that brushing and flossing can not. It also focus on thoroughly cleaning the gums and soft tissues. Patients who visit the dentist on a routine basis are less likely to develop tooth decay, gum disease, and other health concerns.
Oral health is closely connected to full body health. Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease can contribute to many health concerns. Chronic inflammation in your gums can contribute to cardiovascular disease, memory problems, low birth weight in babies and even affect blood sugar levels in diabetics.
