Be honest now, how often do you really take care of your teeth? Chances are it isn’t enough as you should.
And you’re not alone, either. An estimated 47.2 percent of American adults suffer from some sort of periodontal disease according to the CDC.
You owe it to yourself — and your teeth — to check in regularly with your dentist for a professional dental cleaning.
Not convinced yet? Here are five great reasons why you need to get a professional cleaning.
1. A Toothbrush Isn’t Always Enough
Even if you’re diligent about your oral health, brushing your teeth isn’t always enough. The mouth is filled with hard to reach areas that a toothbrush or even flossing can’t always reach.
It’s important that you brush and floss, but you’ll occasionally need a more powerful cleaning.
Even the strongest toothpaste can’t remove certain stains. Professional dental equipment, on the other hand, is more than capable.
Professional cleanings involve more than just a rinse or a wash. The pros use helpful chemicals to remove plaque and tartar that may have built up in your mouth over time.
2. Oral Health Is Connected To Overall Health
When it comes to the health of your teeth and gums, there’s more at stake than just a cavity or an ugly stain. Doctors have confirmed a link between oral health and the rest of the body, particularly the heart.
Unclean, dirty teeth are a breeding ground for bacteria. That bacteria may reach your heart via the bloodstream, resulting in various forms of heart disease.
So don’t think of a professional dental cleaning as just a tooth cleaning. It’s so much more than that. It’s an investment in a better, brighter you and a healthier future.
3. A Professional Dental Cleaning Leaves You With A Brighter Smile
Do you find yourself avoiding pictures or trying not to smile too much in public? No one should go through life ashamed of their smile.
Get your smile back and live a happier, more confident life. Stop hiding and become the life of the party once again.

4. Regular Cleanings Can Prevent Tooth Loss
Above all else, a regular dental cleaning can prevent future tooth loss. Tartar and plaque build up throughout the day and can be difficult to get rid of.
These harmful little microbes can slowly rot away or weaken your teeth. Regular cleanings ensure that your pearly whites will stay that way for years to come.
5. Most Cleanings Are Covered By Insurance
Cost is a common concern when people come in for a cleaning. But not to worry, a cleaning won’t break the bank.
In fact, we accept most insurance plans. Be sure to get in touch and ask if your plan is covered before setting up an appointment.
