Why Regular Dental Cleanings Are Important

Regular dental cleanings play a vital role in maintaining optimal oral health. They effectively eliminate plaque and tartar buildup that brushing and flossing alone may not adequately address. These harmful deposits can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth, ultimately leading to gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental issues. Professional dental cleanings are recommended every six months, during which a dental hygienist will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar, polish teeth, and check for dental problems.

Milestone Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics has skilled dental hygienists who use the latest techniques and tools to provide a thorough cleaning and personalized advice on maintaining good oral hygiene practices at home. We will ensure that your visit is comfortable and stress-free, with plenty of time for questions and answers. We understand that good oral health goes beyond teeth cleaning, so our dentists always take time to discuss your overall health and lifestyle habits that may be impacting your oral hygiene.

Good Oral Hygiene Practices

Aside from regular dental cleanings, there are things you can do at home that will help prevent the onset, progression, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. Here are some of the easiest ones:

Brush Your Teeth at Least Twice a Day

Brushing your teeth regularly with fluoride toothpaste helps remove plaque and bacteria buildup on teeth and gums, preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Additionally, fluoride toothpaste is specially designed to help fortify tooth enamel and shield against cavities, ensuring the long-term health of your teeth.

Floss Your Teeth Daily

It’s crucial to floss your teeth at least once a day to remove any food particles and plaque that may have accumulated between your teeth. Flossing effectively clears away these debris from areas that a toothbrush cannot reach, significantly reducing the likelihood of cavities and gum disease.

Replace Your Toothbrush Regularly

It’s important to replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or even sooner if you notice that the bristles have become frayed. As toothbrush bristles wear down over time, they become less effective at removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. By swapping out your toothbrush regularly, you can guarantee that you’re getting the most optimal cleaning and maintaining the highest level of oral hygiene.

Benefits of Preventive Care

Regular dental cleanings and preventive treatments are essential for maintaining good oral health. Here are some of the key benefits:

Prevent Serious Dental Problems

Visiting the dentist regularly for cleanings and check-ups allows for early identification and treatment of dental problems before they become serious. Cavities can be filled before they lead to root canals, and gum disease can be treated before it causes tooth loss. Preventive care can also detect signs of oral cancer, allowing for early detection and treatment.

Save Costs

Preventive care can save you money in the long run by avoiding costly dental procedures. Early identification and treatment of dental problems can prevent the need for more extensive and expensive treatments later on. For instance, a simple filling costs much less than a root canal, and regular cleanings can help prevent the need for more extensive deep cleanings.

Maintain a Healthy, Confident Smile

Preventive care maintains a healthy, confident smile by preventing dental problems that affect your oral health and appearance. Regular cleanings and checkups prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other problems that cause bad breath, tooth discoloration, and tooth loss. This boosts your self-confidence in your smile and oral health.
