Teeth Need Spring Cleaning, Too

Don’t Forget To Set Up Your Spring Teeth Cleaning

Spring has sprung, and with that comes the imminent spring cleaning. While you’re tidying up your home, don’t forget that your teeth will benefit from a spring cleaning, too. 

Just as regular tidying up is important to keep your home presentable, regular brushing and flossing at home are an essential part of ensuring your oral health is in good standing. Likewise, an in-depth seasonal cleaning is a crucial component of homeownership, maintaining regular dental cleanings is key, too. Regular cleanings help to remove deeper plaque buildup that can damage enamel and bring you better health and a nicer smile. 

Preventing Future Problems

The most basic function of a teeth cleaning is to prevent your pearly whites from succumbing to tooth decay, while checking your overall oral health. Cleanings allow for early detection of issues that could cause pain or long-term discomfort. Your dentist checks for cavities, broken fillings, gum disease and any other problems that may be lurking amongst your teeth. If any issues do arise, you’re already at the dentist and can make arrangements for any procedures or follow-ups. Easy as that!

Brighten Your Smile

Dental cleanings don’t just benefit your oral health; they also help to make your smile brighter. Many of our daily foods and drinks can result in stains on teeth. Your morning coffee or evening wine can leave your teeth dull or discolored. Your dental hygienist can remove most stains, leaving your teeth shining

Healthier Teeth Make A Healthier Body

Did you know that oral health is linked to overall health? Many different types of bacteria will always exist in your mouth, but bad bacteria left untreated can lead to health problems. When excess bad bacteria sets up camp, it can result in issues such as endocarditis, cardiovascular disease and even pneumonia. A simple cleaning, along with good daily hygiene, can help reduce your risk for these diseases and more.
