Find out why you should never miss out on a professional dental cleaning.
Sure, we know your time is precious. We also know that your oral health is important. Would you rather see your Canton family dentist Dr. Shabana Chaudhry every six months for a quick routine cleaning and exam or need to come in less frequently but have to deal with more invasive, time-consuming and expensive procedures to treat dental problems? We believe most people would choose the former. But what makes these dental cleanings so important?
There is a multitude of reasons why these six-month visits are not to be missed but the two main reasons are:
- To prevent tooth loss
- To prevent dental infections and diseases that could also affect your overall health, too
From the foods we eat, what we drink, and to habits like smoking, people put their mouths through a lot of abuse, and it’s the goal of your Canton general dentist to make sure that despite that abuse, your mouth is still healthy for the long-term.
Do you fear losing a permanent tooth? Does gum disease make you wary? These are normal responses to dental problems that could destroy a beautiful smile. Of course, these problems are preventable when you maintain regular dental cleaning visits.
During these cleanings, our professional dental instruments are just the right tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup. While this buildup is a normal part of life, too much buildup can lead to issues like gum disease.
Tartar is seen as a foreign invader and your mouth and immune system will fight to remove the problem. Gum disease causes inflamed gums and can become more serious if left untreated. And unfortunately, your at-home toothbrush isn’t tough enough to remove tartar (only we have the tools for that!). But by coming into our Canton dental office every six months for routine dental care you can protect your healthy smile for the rest of your life.
