Why Dental Cleanings Are Essential

Published on June 14th, 2019

We recommend getting your teeth cleaned twice a year, or more if your dentist suggests otherwise. As your dentists in Lakeview, let us be the first to tell you that insufficient oral hygiene has been linked to many illnesses. Dentists can also be on the lookout for cavities and onset gingivitis, catching it earlier when you come in for your bi-yearly dental cleanings.


The Importance

Even if you are brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time, and floss at least once a day, your at-home routine may not be able to fully remove the hardened tartar buildup below and in between the gum line. Your gums can become inflamed due to gingivitis and your back molars may have cavities that you cannot spot. Dentists can properly clean your mouth and address any dental issues early on, before they become too serious.


Other Reasons To See Us

Regular checkups aren’t just for professional dental cleanings. We can also screen your oral cavity for soft tissue damage and sores, teeth alignment, and even help with TMJ disorder. If you have tooth grinding, we can help prevent enamel erosion by giving you preventative options like a night guard. Some other benefits of visiting us are:

  • Cavity prevention
  • Stopping future tooth loss
  • A brighter smile
  • Fresher breath
  • Boosting your overall health
