you need a little extra motivation to make that call,
here are ten critical reasons to keep up a regular
schedule of dental cleanings!
1. To Prevent Oral Cancer
to The Oral Cancer Foundation, someone dies from oral
cancer every hour of every day in the United States
alone. When you have your dental cleaning, we also
screen you for oral cancer, which is highly
curable if diagnosed early.
2. To Prevent Gum Disease
disease is an infection in the gum tissues and bone that
keep your teeth in place and is one of the leading
causes of adult tooth loss. If diagnosed early, it can
be treated and reversed. If treatment is not received, a
more serious and advanced stage of gum disease may
follow. Regular dental cleanings and check ups, flossing
daily and brushing twice a day are key factors in
preventing gum disease.
3. To Help Maintain Good Physical Health
Recent studies have linked heart attacks and strokes
to gum disease, resulting from poor oral hygiene. A
dental cleaning every 6 months helps to keep your teeth
and gums healthy and could possibly reduce your risk of
heart disease and strokes.
4. To Keep Your Teeth
Since gum disease is one of the leading causes of
tooth loss in adults, regular dental check ups and
cleanings, brushing and flossing are vital to keeping as
many teeth as you can. Keeping your teeth means better
chewing function and ultimately, better health.
Detect Dental Problems Early
We will be able to detect any early signs of problems
with your teeth or gums. Early detection of cavities,
broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If
these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery
and removal of teeth could become the only treatment
6. To Maintain Good Oral Health
Dr. Meierhenry and
our dental hygienists help to ensure that you are
maintaining your good oral health by visual examination
and comparing your previous dental check ups. If you are
falling off track with your oral hygiene, they will help
put you back on the right path.
To Use Your Dental Insurance Plan
insurance plans usually pay for all or most of the cost
of dental cleanings and check ups every six months. Take
advantage of this and save a lot of money in the long
run by avoiding costly dental procedures that can result
from poor oral hygiene.
8. To Create A Treatment Plan
diagnoses any problems in your mouth, he will give you a
treatment plan. This treatment plan will have the cost
of each procedure that you will need, so that you can
discuss financial arrangements with the front office.
9. To Have A Bright And White Smile
dental hygienists can remove most tobacco, coffee and tea
stains. During your cleaning, our hygienist will also
polish your teeth to a beautiful shine. The result? A
whiter and brighter smile!
To Prevent Bad Breath
studies show that about 85 percent of people with
persistent bad breath, also known as halitosis, have a
dental problem that is to blame. Good oral hygiene is
essential in preventing bad breath. Regular check
ups and cleanings are the best way to make sure that you
are maintaining good oral hygiene.
