Are you extremely thoughtful when it comes to taking care of your teeth? Perhaps you’ve been a bit lax because you assume that teeth are either “good” or “bad,” so worrying too much won’t make a difference. Regardless of your personal philosophies or ideas, the truth behind dental hygiene and keeping a clean smile is simple: Consistent preventive care offers exceptional protection, keeping your smile looking beautiful and feeling great. This is the reason we encourage patients to schedule six-month dental cleanings with us. The more consistently clean your teeth, the easier it is to keep your smile in excellent condition. If you aren’t quite convinced, go ahead and learn more with some compelling reasons to scheduling your cleaning:
#1 You Cannot Remove All Plaque
Even if you brush your teeth and floss exactly the way we suggest, you will still not be able to remove all of the plaque from your teeth and beneath your gumline on your own. This does not mean your efforts are not worthwhile. You need to practice excellent home care. It just means that you need to see us once every six months for a dental cleaning, so you can achieve a truly clean smile.
#2 Avoiding Cavities Isn’t Too Hard
Think about what happens if you don’t clean your teeth. You avoid brushing and flossing and you decide to skip out on scheduling your dental cleanings. What most likely will occur is tooth decay. You may even find that you experience gum disease. All you have to do to prevent these problems, which may then require restorative treatments like dental fillings and periodontal care, is keep your teeth clean. As for professional care, it only takes two appointments a year. Pretty easy.
#3 We’re Gentle
You may avoid scheduling dental cleanings because you are a bit worried about the experience. We would like to remind you that we have your best interest at heart, which includes offering a comfortable experience. As we remove the plaque from your teeth, we will use gentle yet thorough techniques, so you can rest easy about your twice annual appointments.
