Visiting the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning has proven to be extremely beneficial for your teeth and gums. When you come in for a dental cleaning at Avenues Dentistry, our friendly dental team will assist you in helping you relax and enjoy your cleaning. Here’s why regular dental cleanings are essential.
Gum Disease Prevention
Without a professional dental cleaning, it’s possible for plaque and tartar to build up over time, leading to gum disease. Our dental hygienist will use a scaler to remove any plaque and tarter between your teeth and the gum line. Keep in mind that tartar can only be removed at a dental office and the right training and tools.
Oral Cancer Detection
Unfortunately, oral cancer is more common than most people realize. In fact, one American dies every hour from oral cancer. During your dental cleaning, you can be screened for oral cancer. Early diagnosis is key to improving the prognosis of cancer.
Strong Oral Health
If necessary, we may offer fluoride treatments to strengthen the enamel of your teeth. We’ll also floss your teeth to prevent bacteria build up and gum disease
