Why Dental Cleanings are Essential

Professional dental cleanings aren’t just for keeping your smile bright. They are also essential for your overall health. While brushing and flossing at home is great and an absolute necessity, that alone isn’t enough. Here are four reasons why regular cleanings are a must:

  1. Regular cleanings remove stains that discolor your teeth and tartar and plaque buildup that cannot be removed by regular brushing alone.
  2. It allows your dentist and the hygienist to check for early signs of larger problems such as broken or loose fillings.
  3. Preventative cleanings and checkups will save you money by preventing small problems from becoming big problems.
  4. They can help prevent gum disease and detect oral cancer as well as maintain overall health
