Dental Cleanings & Exams

Dental cleaning with professional equipment

Why do I need regular dental cleanings and exams?

The reason why dental cleaning and exams are important is that they provide a good indicator of the general health of an individual, as well as if any major disease or issues are present. Dental cleanings and exams allow for far better preventative care than just relying on medication to keep the teeth healthy. They also provide a chance for people to have healthier gums (which prevents gum disease) and can help reduce the risk of tooth decay.

You should visit your dentist at least once a year for a routine exam and cleaning because they’ll be able to spot dental issues before they get serious. During the cleaning, the dentist will look at all of your teeth and gums so he can determine if you have any cavities or gum disease, which are the most common issues. If there are any problems he’ll recommend treatment and make any necessary repairs.

Why do I need a dentist for a dental cleaning?

The cleaning itself is the most basic part of the exam, but it’s important because a dentist will use dental instruments to clean your teeth including the areas where your gum meets your teeth. One of the major benefits of dental cleaning is that it will reduce your chances of developing gum disease because the dentist will remove tartar and plaque before they can cause any damage.

Even if you don’t visit the dentist at least once a year, if you have problems with your teeth, it’s best that you schedule a dental cleaning and exam. These procedures are relatively easy and inexpensive these days. Most dentists offer them for free or for a low-cost price with insurance. We recommend that if you have shown any signs of gum disease you should go to the dentist as soon as possible.
