Benefits of Dental Cleanings

The Benefits of Dental Cleaning

Your oral health is directly related to your overall health. As it is important to brush and floss your teeth, it is just as important to schedule dental cleanings. There are many benefits to dental cleanings.

Gets Rid Of Bad Breath

Dental cleanings can help treat bad breath. Bad breath is also known as “halitosis”. Halitosis can be caused by a wide variety of issues.

The most common reasons for bad breath is bacteria on the teeth and debris in your mouth. Frequent “deep” cleanings are helpful in removing the bacteria. Dental hygienists are able to remove plaque from your teeth that people can’t reach with your toothbrush. In turn, this will help treat bad breath.

Our staff will also provide oral hygiene tips to keep your smile looking great. Proper brushing and flossing technique is important to maintain your oral health.

Prevents Cavities

Cavities are painful and can lead to you losing your teeth. Dental cleanings are a good way to prevent cavities. Before cavities develop, our dentists will survey your teeth and point out the problematic areas.

By highlighting the areas of concern, we can prevent and track your teeth’s health.

At the same time, we will use our dental equipment to remove the deep plaque from around and between your teeth. Removing plaque that is hard to reach is important for preventing cavities.

Healthy Gums

Bleeding gums is one of the signs of gum disease. If your gums bleed after brushing your teeth, it is important that you have regular dental cleanings. Sun Dentistry are experts in not only in cleaning your teeth but giving your healthy gums.

A buildup of plaque around your teeth leads to gum inflammation which is known as ‘gingivitis’. Gingivitis is important to treat because your gums will start to recede. With receding gums, more plaque can gather between your teeth which can cause cavities.

Our dentists take extra care to clean your gums to prevent gingivitis. If you have sensitive gums, our dentists will provide a softer ‘touch’ during your dental cleaning.

Boosts Overall Health

Good oral health can lead to a boost in overall health. Many oral problems can increase the risk of many other health conditions.

The more bacteria you have in your mouth, the higher likelihood of a heart attack or a stroke. With regular dental cleanings, it reduces the amount of inflammation caused by bacteria.

Gum disease can also make it difficult to control Diabetes. Routine dental cleanings help remove plaque and can help with diabetes.

Lastly, dental cleanings allow dentists to assess the overall health of your mouth. Catching potential problems early can make treatment easier.
