Benefits of Regular Teeth Cleaning and Dental Exams
Healthy Gums – Calculus and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria, and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging build-ups.
A Healthier Looking Smile – Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the aesthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these otherwise unsightly stains.
Fresher Breath – Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene that stems from gum infection results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus, and bacteria at our office can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.
We recommend that prophylaxis (aka teeth cleaning) be performed every six months as a preventative measure. However, if you’re a periodontitis sufferer, you should schedule an exam (and cleaning) every three to four months. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the key paths to keeping its negative effects at bay.
