The Importance of Routine Teeth Cleanings at the Dental Office
- Posted on: Sep 30 2018
Brushing and flossing the teeth every day after every meal is a great way to keep the smile healthy. However, it is not the only way. It is still important for patients to book routine visits with their dentist for cleanings and examinations at the dental office. Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall and her team of professionals in Ardmore, PA provide preventative dentistry as just one part of the services available.
What is preventative care?
Having a reactive approach to dentistry can be a problem for many patients. Instead of waiting for problems to occur with the smile, our team of professionals encourage patients to take a proactive approach with preventative dental care. This includes visiting the dentist every six months for a cleaning and examination. Problems that can arise, including dental caries and periodontal disease, can be caught early enough for successful intervention when patients routinely visit their dentist. Additionally, problems can be completely avoided when patients require education on how to properly brush and floss their teeth. Many dental problems arise from poor home care or irregular visits to the dentist. Avoiding the development of these conditions can not only save time, but money.
The importance of cleaning the teeth
While you may feel as though you are thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth, there are times in which food particles, plaque, and tartar may be hard to reach. When left on the teeth, they can result in the development of cavities or disease. Patients should visit Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall for routine cleanings, as a professional cleaning will ensure the teeth are healthy! During cleanings, the dental hygienist can also look for issues that may indicate a concern and pass the information onto the dentist for further investigation and early intervention.
