Teeth cleaning- The 7 Benefits

For a bright smile and healthy teeth and gums, you should see your dental hygienist at least twice a year. Practicing good oral hygiene at home is important, but professional teeth cleaning removes the plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing misses. Listed below are the 7 benefits of having your teeth cleaned professionally.

1. Prevent gum disease and cavities

For a bright smile and healthy teeth and gums, you should see your dental hygienist at least twice a year. Practicing good oral hygiene at home is important, but professional teeth cleaning removes the plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing misses. Listed below are the 7 benefits of having your teeth cleaned professionally.

2. Keep your teeth shiny and your smile bright.

Smoking, wine, and coffee can all stain your teeth throughout the year. During your dental cleaning session, we’ll polish your teeth to help remove the built-up stains, as well as return them to their original shine, smoothness, and colour.

3. Prevent heart disease and diabetes.

Gum disease is linked to other serious health conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. Your bi-annual teeth cleanings help prevent gum disease, which improves your chances of avoiding some of these serious health issues. 

4. Detect oral cancer

As part of your teeth cleaning, we’ll also perform an oral cancer screening to keep an eye out for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions within your mouth.

5. Keep your breath fresh- treat halitosis.

Plaque builds up in hard-to-reach areas, which can cause bad breath. Regular teeth cleanings can help reduce the bacteria that causes bad breath. 

 

6. Prevent Tooth Loss.

Gum disease leads to bone loss around teeth, leading to loose teeth and eventually tooth loss. Your risk of tooth loss is greatly reduced simply by having your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year.

7. Save Money.

Prevention is better than cure and is far less expensive. The cost of replacing lost teeth with dental implants can run into thousands of rands. Preventing gum disease by having regular professional dental cleaning is cost-effective.
