The Importance of a Professional Dental Cleaning

 Azarko Marketing  Thursday, January 04, 2018

Many people only visit their dentist when they feel pain or discomfort in their teeth and gums. However, visiting your dentist in Edmonton on a regular basis for a professional cleaning is important even if you don't have any dental health problems and you practice good oral hygiene at home. Good brushing and flossing habits are certainly important, but there are some benefits you only get from a trip to an Edmonton dental clinic.

Professional dental cleanings are important for:

Removing plaque and tartar buildup

No matter how astutely you brush at home, there are likely some hard-to-reach places on your teeth where plaque has an easier time settling and proliferating. If not removed, plaque can begin hardening into a sticky substance known as tartar in just 24 hours. Only a trained hygienist at your Edmonton dentist can remove tartar once it has formed, and they'll have no trouble reaching the plaque that you can't reach at home.

Preventing oral health problems

Preventative dentistry is the best tool that dentists have in the fight against oral disease. Visiting your Edmonton dentist at least every six months for a professional cleaning will help keep gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health diseases at bay. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy means that you will be at a lower risk of tooth loss later on in life.

Correcting oral health problems early

After prevention, catching oral health problems early is the next best thing for ensuring speedy and effective treatment. In the early stages, gum disease and tooth decay can be reversed if the proper steps are taken. Treatment is not only easier but also a lot more affordable early on. The cost of not visiting the dentist regularly can easily outgrow the cost of dental cleanings.

Edmonton dentists are also often the first primary healthcare practitioners to detect signs of oral cancer, which is much more responsive to treatment if caught early.

Maintaining a whiter smile

Teeth can quickly become discoloured from too much plaque and tartar buildup. By going for a regular dental cleaning, you'll get to enjoy a brighter and whiter smile on top of a healthier one. Your dentist and hygienist will also be able to give you personalized pointers on how to keep your teeth whiter, and they may suggest cosmetic dentistry treatments for you as well.
