Why Dental Cleanings are Important

Feb 27 • 1 minute read

 Professional cleanings from a Dental Hygienist provide many benefits to your oral health. These benefits include: 

1.Reduce Persistent Bad Breath: A dental cleaning helps remove the buildup of plaque and bacteria that can cause bad breath, restoring a healthy, lasting fresh breath in your mouth.

2.Brightening Your Teeth: Overtime your teeth can get noticeably discoloured from coffee, wine, or tea. A professional dental cleaning can help lift stubborn stains from your teeth, thus leaving you with a brighter smile!

3. Minimize Risk of Gum Disease: Teeth cleanings are especially important for preventing or minimizing gum disease. Your dental hygienist can perform a deep cleaning to remove stubborn plaque and calculus, thereby halting the progression of gum disease.

4. Minimize Risk of Cavities: Similar to gum disease, cavities form when plaque and harmful bacteria accumulate around your teeth. Regular cleanings can help keep the bacterial infection at bay, preventing cavities before they start.

5. Review Proper Hygiene Practices: Are you brushing or flossing the right way? A dental checkup or teeth cleaning is an excellent opportunity to check with your Dental Hygienist. They are happy to tell you how to best take care of your teeth at home and to teach you about any ways to improve in your cleaning technique.

With all of these potential benefits, there is no time better than now to book your dental cleaning! Call or visit our appointment request page today to get started.
