Spring is Here (it is … really!) The longer hours of daylight and wonderful warmer weather mean spring cleaning for a lot of us. This season, take an hour out of your organizing and scrubbing to treat yourself to a little spring cleaning for your teeth! The dental team at Frankel Dentistry wants to remind you that professional cleaning is important to your dental health. It is unbelievable what you can accomplish with just one hour, twice a year in the dental hygiene chair at Frankel Dentistry!
Here are the Top 3 Reasons to schedule your Dental Spring Cleaning:
1. Clean, Healthy Teeth Are Attractive!
One of the best ways to keep your smile bright and shiny is to have them professionally cleaned at least once every six months. Just like in your humble abode, regular maintenance and cleaning does not reach all the nooks and crannies: you might perform extensive cleaning and organizing a couple of times a year to keep those hard to reach areas clean. The same goes for your teeth! Regular brushing and flossing is necessary, of course, but to keep teeth really clean and healthy, a professional cleaning is the only way you can remove certain types of plaque and tartar build up.
2. Early Detection of Dental Problems
If you don’t clean out the closets once in a while, you never see what’s behind all that junk! Having your teeth professionally cleaned also means that a careful, thorough inspection of each tooth’s health and condition will happen. If there is a little problem, such as a small area of tooth decay, it can be spotted early and repaired before it becomes a bigger, more painful and expensive dental problem.
3. Professional Cleaning Helps Prevent Gum Disease
A professional dental cleaning removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and in all those hard to reach areas. The bacteria found in plaque have been proven to cause gum disease. Keeping your teeth shiny, bright and plaque-free helps maintain your healthy gums.
If it’s been a while since your last professional dental cleaning, never fear! It’s not too late to get back on track to good oral health! Contact Frankel Dentistry today to schedule your own spring dental cleaning!
