Routine Teeth Cleanings - Prophylaxis

Teeth Cleanings Dentist

Personal dental care includes regular teeth cleanings. These help you to avoid dental and medical problems, which include but are not limited to infection, gum disease, loss of bone, stroke, heart disease, among many others. Besides the personal teeth cleaning done at home, you should also have regular check ups at your local dentist's office, including professional cleaning. This removes both the hard and the soft deposits on your teeth, ensuring an overall good oral hygiene.

The frequency with which you should have the professional teeth cleaning exercise done depends on a number of factors, primarily the health of your gums and teeth. Healthy adults and children should have their teeth cleaned twice a year.

Why Clean Teeth?

To prevent oral cancer, it is important to regularly clean your teeth. During a dental cleaning exercise, your dentist screens you for signs of oral cancer, which can be cured if diagnosed on time. Gum disease can also be diagnosed, treated and reversed if one has regular dental cleanings. If not treated, gum disease becomes more serious and may advance into stages that affect the bones and gum tissue. Besides your periodic dental cleanings at the dentist, make sure to floss and brush your teeth two times daily to prevent gum disease.
