What Are the Benefits of a Dental Cleaning?

There are certain healthy habits we all know we should maintain, like exercising three days each week, getting an annual physical exam, and getting a dental cleaning every six months. Of course, having those habits on our to-do lists and actually doing them are two different things.

If you need some motivation to schedule your next dental cleaning, check out all the ways that cleaning will benefit your health, your look, and your wallet.

The best-known and clearest advantage to a teeth cleaning is to keep your teeth healthy. You might be brushing and flossing your teeth every day, but there’s some debris and bacteria that those techniques can’t handle. You need a professional cleaning to truly get a deep clean.

Keeping tooth decay at bay means that you’ll be making fewer trips to the dentists for fillings, crowns, and other procedures. You’re also less likely to deal with serious dental infections that could lead to tooth extractions and root canals. Prevention will be easier on your schedule and your wallet.

Everyone wants beautiful white teeth, but teeth are easy to stain with food and drinks. A dental cleaning, however, can remove early stains before they set in and become more permanent.

If you’re interested in going a step further with professional teeth whitening, your dental cleaning is a perfect opportunity to ask for more details.

We’ve all had a few “bad breath” moments in our lives. It often happens when you have bits of food or bacteria trapped in your mouth, usually without you realising it.

In some cases, those trapped particles stand their ground even against brushing and flossing your teeth, not to mention swishing mouthwash. A thorough dental cleaning gets rid of any remnants and bacteria so you can smile and speak without fear.

Your annual dental exam is one of those appointments that tends to fall to the back burner. Many people don’t go in for an exam until they have a problem, and by then, they could be facing larger restorations and procedures.

Instead, schedule your dental cleaning and your exam at the same time. This makes it easy to get your exam each year so you can catch and fix any issues before they turn into larger problems.

Oral health is important on its own, but you may not realize what an impact it has on your overall health. After all, there is a known link between gum disease and heart disease.

Dental cleanings can also prevent health risks like infections. A dental infection can spread to the rest of your body and become a severe illness.
