Every aspect of our lives starting with our mind and bodies need consistent keep-up to remain strong and healthy. And you guessed it, our mouths and teeth need to be taken care of – regularly at home – with brushing and flossing as part of a daily routine. However, even the most disciplined of brushers will not be able to precisely clean each and every area of the mouth, so it is imperative you schedule bi-annual dental cleanings with your favorite Beverly Hills dentist.
Regular dental cleaning offers one main benefit – clean, healthy teeth – and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a full hour to complete. They are rarely painful or unpleasant, and can include, but aren’t limited to:
- Removal of plaque, tartar, and calcium deposits
- Full examination of teeth and gums for cavities and other potential dangers
- Polishing to discourage future plaque buildup
Why Choose Bedford Dental Group
Why is all of this needed? Besides keeping teeth looking great and maintaining confidence in your smile, proper and regular teeth cleaning prevents against gum disease by removing the plaque that is usually to blame for the onset of periodontal disease and gingivitis. Such outcomes lead to pain, bad breath, and potential loss of tooth. In addition, the discovery of cavities, discoloration, and swollen gums takes place during any routine cleaning. Not to mention that loose teeth can go undetected for months and even years if not for dental cleaning. And as any cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills will tell you, a loose tooth may result in required surgery, root canal, or even tooth extraction.
While your dentist has the physical skills to clean your teeth, they also posses know-how, and can provide tips, tricks, and other measures that make keeping teeth clean easier in the future. He or she may suggest a precise tooth brush based on the condition of your mouth and the areas you aren’t reaching with your current methods. They may also provide new ways to perform everybody’s favorite action – flossing – by suggesting different picks and tools that you may never have tried or known about on your own.
Another piece of the plaque-fighting equation that many people don’t realize is that good oral hygiene can result in lower risk of heart disease. While the connection between teeth and heart may be foggy, poor hygiene leads to bacteria growth, which can travel elsewhere in the body including the lungs and blood vessels.
Regular dental cleaning performed by our skilled and knowledgeable Beverly Hills Dentist at Bedford Dental Group will lead you to a cleaner and healthier teeth and mouth with reduced risk of other major health problems. Further, preventing high costs of serious complications and remedies down the road.
