Benefits of a Dental Cleaning
The benefits of a dental cleaning are numerous, and involve the following positive outcomes:
First and foremost, a professional cleaning by your dentist keeps your mouth clean and your teeth strong. While regular brushing and flossing are key to a healthy mouth, a professional dental cleaning helps by ensuring everything is working smoothly. If you are missing a spot when you brush due to the natural alignment of your teeth or the shape of your toothbrush, your dentist can help you identify this area, ensure it’s thoroughly cleaned, and give you advice and tips on how to best remedy the situation.
By constantly disturbing the plaque on your teeth, you are preventing it from building up and hardening in tartar. When allowed to harden, the tartar can begin to gather under your gums, causing gingivitis or periodontitis, two serious forms of gum disease. Left untreated, these can result in gum recession, bone loss, tooth loss, and more.
Dental cleanings use professional-grade toothpaste and fluoride treatments to keep your teeth looking white and bright. Additionally, your dental cleaning allows you to address any potential concerns you may have with the shape or look of your teeth with your dentist. With your unique cosmetic goals in mind, your dentist can help devise a plan of action to brighten, straighten, and modify your teeth into the smile you have always wanted.

Cavities and other oral health concerns, such as burgeoning gum disease, can occasionally form outside of your knowledge. When you have regular dental cleanings scheduled, your dentist can actively restore your mouth. This includes healing any diseases, filling any cavities, and other forms of restorative dental treatments.
