What does a cleaning really do for my teeth?

Did you know that you are supposed to get your teeth cleaned at least twice a year? There are skeptics out there who assume that if they brush, floss and use mouthwash daily, they do not need to see their dentist for your teeth cleaning in Lincoln Square. This isn’t true. Dentist cleaning appointments serve to check up on your oral health and make sure your teeth and gums are at their healthiest. Here are just a few things that dentists do for you during a dental cleaning.

Prevent cavities

A professional cleaning can remove plaque, tartar, and stains that have begun to show on the teeth. You can be flossing and brushing daily and still develop tartar. Good oral hygiene begins at your dental cleanings and is vital to prevent any build-up of tartar or the development of gum disease.

Freshen your breath

Bad breath is uncomfortable and embarrassing. If you are unsure what is causing the bad breath, or taste in your mouth, you should check in with your dentist. Did you know that regular checkups allow your dentist to discover problems such as gum disease or dry mouth (both of which are associated with bad breath)?

Boost overall health

Visiting your dentist for a bi-yearly cleaning helps improve your overall oral health. They are constantly checking for all things oral disease-related and making sure your health is in tip-top shape. Even if you are consistently brushing and flossing, there may be diseases in your mouth that you cannot detect on your own.
