Here’s Why You Should Never Skip the Dentist Again!

Mon, Feb 18th, 2019

Professional dental cleanings aren’t just for keeping your smile bright: they can have a significant impact on your general health! 

7 reasons why you should have professional teeth cleanings:

1)    Brighter, Whiter Teeth

Your dental hygienist can remove the majority of the stains that discolor and dull your teeth. As we know, coffee, tea, wine, foods, and smoking tobacco products all stain your teeth! You don’t have to give up your favorite food or drink, let us remove built-up stains!

2)    Your spouse will thank you!

Regular cleanings help prevent and resolve persistent bad breath! Brushing and flossing regularly are often not enough, getting a professional cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth odor free!

3)    Save money!

By staying regular with six-month cleanings, you can save money by being proactive with your dental health to avoiding more costly and extensive procedures! The best part is that most preventative and diagnostic services, like cleanings and exams, are covered in full by your dental benefits companies!

4)    Protect Yourself

Did you know roughly 1 person every hour will die due to oral cancer?  Close to 53,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral oropharyngeal cancer this year. Of those 53,000 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. Your dentist is the only healthcare provider specializing in your oral health and routinely performs oral cancer examinations. We utilize cutting edge, blue light technology which makes fluorescence visualization and cancer detection possible in only one to two minutes!

5)    A Healthy Smile is a Healthy Body

With the mouth being an open gateway for micro-organisms, our body is easily affected by conditions that start in the mouth.  Research has discovered links between oral health and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, inflammation in the body, dementia, Alzheimer's and infertility- to name a few.  Reduce your chances of potentially deadly heart attacks and strokes by getting your teeth professional cleaned regularly! 

6)    Keep Your Teeth Longer

Staying regular with your dental cleanings can prevent gum disease and gingivitis which can lead to bone and tooth loss.  Remember, gum disease is one of the only diseases that are 100% preventable!

7)    How About a Confidence Boost?

After your eyes, your smile is among the first thing people notice about you. It is scientifically proven that you can reduce stress levels and boost mood-enhancing endorphins just by smiling. Keeping your routine cleaning will help make sure you have the confidence to let your smile shine!
