Why Professional Teeth Cleanings are Important
Find out why seeing your dentist for routine care is necessary for a healthy smile.
Do you brush your teeth twice a day? Do you floss every day? If you said “yes” then you are already doing a great job at ensuring the health of your teeth and gums! However, even with the best at-home care, it’s still important that you visit our Cohasset, MA, family dentists, Dr. Kevin Thomas and Dr. Aaron Chenette, every six months for cleanings and checkups.
Here are the top reasons why everyone should get routine dental cleanings:
Remove Plaque and Tartar
Even the most diligent brushers and flossers will still miss areas around their teeth when brushing and flossing. Fortunately, regular six-month cleanings ensure that any plaque or tartar buildup is removed—a great thing, for these substances can lead to decay or gum disease if left untreated. Furthermore, once plaque hardens into tartar, it can only be removed by a dental professional.
Early Detection of Dental Issues
Dental cleanings are just part of the preventive measures that you should be taking to ensure that cavities and gum disease don’t happen to you. After all, with the proper care, these two common problems can be completely prevented. However, even if you develop these conditions, they can still both be reversed if treated early enough. Of course, this requires special treatment and care from our Cohasset, MA, dentists.
Oral Cancer Detection
Oral cancer is a serious and potentially life-threatening condition whose cure relies on early detection, an action most effectively completed during your routine checkups. By examining the gums and other oral tissue, we can look for early warning signs such as lesions and red/white patches, and determine whether you have the condition or not.
