The Importance of Regular Teeth Cleaning

Mar 29, 2019

For most people, having a healthy, beautiful smile is a top priority. At Richmond Dental, we understand how important it is to have a nice smile, and we are proud to offer various preventive dental care options perfect for helping you achieve your goal. Regular teeth cleanings are one preventive dental care option that we recommend to all patients. At Airdrie Family Dental, we recommend regular teeth cleanings at least twice a year for most patients. Regular teeth cleanings are an important part of having a healthy, functional and beautiful smile and can help with:

Tooth Decay Prevention

Did you know that tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children 6 and older? At some point in life, most people experience tooth decay and a cavity. However, with proper dental care such as routine teeth cleanings, you can completely avoid tooth decay. During a regular dental cleaning, your dentist uses their experience, knowledge, and tools to make sure every corner of your mouth is left clean, even those hard to reach places.

Periodontal Gum Disease Prevention

Were you aware that over 64,000,000 Americans currently suffer from periodontal gum disease? Gum disease is a common condition that can be completely avoided with proper dental care. Regular teeth cleanings can help reduce your risk of periodontal gum disease by reducing the amount of plaque, bacteria, and acid in the mouth along with improving the health of your gums.

Improved Smile

Want a brighter, whiter more healthy-looking smile? Regular teeth cleanings can improve not only the health and function of your smile but also the appearance. Patients that receive regular teeth cleanings tend to have less staining and discoloration.

Bad Breath (Halitosis)

Can’t ever quite seem to get rid of your bad breath? Regular teeth cleanings can greatly decrease your risk of bad breath by reducing the bacteria in the mouth responsible for causing the problem.
