This year, make a resolution to be mindful of your oral health as well! Below are a few reasons to schedule a regular cleaning today!
- Prevent cavities and tooth loss
The whitish film that builds up on your teeth is called plaque, the leading cause of tooth decay. This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and if left unattended, can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing, flossing and dental cleanings.
- Brighten your smile
Drinking coffee, tea and wine can stain your teeth. Before you put down that glass, schedule an appointment! A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? A whiter, brighter smile! Bottom's up!
- Freshen your breath
Consistent and through oral hygiene is the best way to prevent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free.
- Boost your overall health
Studies have shown a connection between oral and overall health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for some diseases, like heart disease and stroke. Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening, can be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam.
Get the most our of your insurance plan! Most plans offer low, or no copayments/coinsurance for dental cleanings and oral exams. By staying up-to-date with your cleanings and checkups, you may be able to save money by potentially preventing more costly procedures.
