Health Benefits of Professional Teeth Cleaning

dca-blog_dental-hygienist-and-cleaning-face

When was the last time you had your teeth cleaned? Professional teeth cleaning isn’t just about looking your best. Your overall health can suffer if you don’t practice good dental hygiene. In fact, many serious health conditions have been linked to the condition of teeth and gums. These include periodontitis, bone infection, bone loss, heart disease, cancers, and more. It’s important to brush twice daily, and floss at home, but to make sure your teeth are as clean and healthy as possible, you should also schedule dental cleanings with your dental hygienist at least once a year and see your dentist regularly.

When performing a professional teeth cleaning, your dental hygienist and dentist may identify multiple dental problems. They can then devise a treatment plan and work with you on financial arrangements. If your dental insurance covers regular dental cleanings, this can help you save money on future dental bills.

Studies have found a strong link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease, so getting your teeth cleaned regularly can reduce your chances of suffering a heart attack or stroke. When detected early through routine dental exams, oral cancer is highly curable. Your gums even reflect the condition of your general health, so early signs of diabetes, leukemia, and anemia may be found by your dentist.

Professional dental cleanings impact your oral health in the following ways:

  • If your dentist or dental hygienist detect early signs of tooth or gum disease, they can act quickly to prevent future tooth loss.
  • Gum disease is very treatable when caught early and can often be reversed before serious damage occurs.
  • The dental team can detect broken teeth and newly forming cavities.
  • A dental hygienist can remove tooth stains caused by coffee, tea, and tobacco.
  • Routine teeth cleaning prevents and treats bad breath.

If you maintain proper oral hygiene at home and schedule regular dental cleanings, your chances are much higher of keeping your natural teeth and enjoying better health throughout your life.
