It’s that time of year, windows get washed, those dust bunnies in the closets come out of hibernation…..a perfect time to remind you about your oral care .Here are seven good reasons why you should add teeth cleaning to your “spring cleaning list”
#1. To Have Good Oral Hygiene
Over time everyone will have plaque build up on their teeth. Having your teeth cleaned will remove this plaque that has built up in areas that you are either unable to get to or would have difficulty getting to.
#2. To Prevent Halitosis (Bad Breath)
This is somewhat in line with number one, but at the same time it’s something else that must be considered. A thorough cleaning can help individuals with bad breath a lot. If you are one of those that have a bad problem with halitosis, not having your teeth cleaned regularly will definitely make it worse.
#3. The Prevention Of Oral Cancer.
This is one of the best reasons to visit a dentist regularly, especially if you’re a tobacco user. Oral cancer can be caught in it’s early stages if you have your teeth cleaned regularly. An ounce of prevention…
#4. Your Overall Health
Did you know that the condition of your teeth has been directly linked to heart disease? Although these studies have not been 100% conclusive, there is evidence that gum disease, resulting from poor oral hygiene may be linked to heart attacks and strokes.
#5. To Prevent Gingivitis
Do your gums bleed, especially when you brush your teeth? This is a condition known as “Gingivitis” and if you don’t take care of it you can eventually lose your teeth. Gingivitis is a warning sign of gum disease, which is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. If this is treated in time it can be reversed, however, it will get much worse if left unattended.
#6. To Have A Nice Smile
Don’t you want to always look your best? Of course you do! By visiting your dentist on a regular basis you can have your teeth cleaned, get them whitened and take care of any other issues that may arise before your teeth are damaged. There have been major advances in cosmetic dentistry in the past few years, so there’s no reason to believe that any issues that you may have can’t be taken care of.
#7. To Keep Your Original Teeth
Regardless of all of the advances in dental medicine and denture wear, it’s still desirable to keep your own original teeth, if at all possible. People who wear dentures have difficulty eating certain types of foods and dental implants can cost as much as $5,000 per tooth, which is out of most peoples budget.
