Regular cleaning, flossing, and visits to the dentist are essential in keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
You might ask, “But I brush and floss my teeth regularly. Why should I have my teeth cleaned by my dentist?”
Here are 6 reasons for regular dental cleanings that will convince you to schedule regular visits to your Sterling Heights dentist.
For the protection of your teeth
Left unchecked, the diseases that can wreak havoc in your mouth can lead to tooth loss. With regular cleaning, your Sterling Heights dentist can nip the particular dental problem plaguing you in the bud, preventing its progression that may eventually lead to tooth loss and additional costs.
The buildup of plaque has been identified as one of the leading causes of tooth decay. And no matter how thoroughly or how often you brush and floss your teeth, you simply cannot remove plaque by yourself.
Plaque is often described as a film that builds upon the surface of your teeth. The acids contained by plaque can slowly erode the surface of your teeth and eventually lead to cavities.
Want to have a brighter smile?
Overtime, your teeth will lose its natural luster due to the food and drinks that you consume. Some of these food and drinks can actually stain your teeth, leading to a dull, lackluster smile.
Regular dental cleaning can help restore or even improve the quality of your smile.
Nothing can dampen confidence faster than foul breath.
Sure, regular brushing, flossing and even using a mouthwash can help curb this problem. But if there is an underlying issue beyond the cleanliness of your teeth, it’s your Sterling Heights dentist who can provide an effective solution.
Improve your health
Quite simply, a healthy mouth is a vital component of overall health.
There is a substantial body of research which points to a correlation between oral and overall health. Risk for diseases like stroke and heart disease increase when a person has poor oral health.
Not yet convinced?
If losing your teeth or the idea of having clean teeth and fresh breath do not convince you to visit Dr. Farhat for regular cleanings, how does spending tons of cash to treat diseases and other oral health problems (which could have been easily prevented with professional attention) sound?
Think of regular dental cleanings as an investment in yourself. At first, you might not see the dividends. But over time, you’ll thank yourself (and your Dr. Farhat) for taking a proactive approach to caring for your oral health.
