Importance of Teeth Cleanings

Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio

Professional teeth cleanings are an important part of your dental hygiene regimen. They help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which can increase your risk of more serious health complications such as tooth loss and infection when left untreated. Your regularly scheduled teeth cleanings will also help protect your overall health. Studies reveal that gum disease can greatly increase your risk of heart disease.

Benefits of Teeth Cleanings

Here are some other benefits of routine dental cleanings:

  • Oral cancer prevention: Each professional teeth cleaning includes an oral cancer screening to help keep you safe and healthy.
  • Early detection of dental problems: When cavities are detected early, they are easier to treat. A worn dental filling can be replaced before bacteria make their way into your tooth and cause a greater problem. Regular visits to Dr. Sheridan can eliminate the need for root canals, gum surgery and tooth extraction.
  • Gum disease prevention: Gum disease is the number one cause of adult tooth loss. If you do not regularly come for your routine cleanings, your risk of gum disease increases. Dr. Sheridan offers a variety of periodontal treatment options to help you manage gum disease that is in early or more advanced stages.
  • Fresh breath, good overall health: Aside from giving you fresh breath, routine cleanings can help maintain good overall health. Poor dental hygiene has been linked to several diseases, such as heart attack and stroke, so a cleaning every six months can have a serious impact on your overall well-being.
  • A dazzling, healthy smile: Routine cleanings can address most surface stains caused by tea, wine, tobacco and coffee, leaving you with a beautifully polished, dazzling smile that you can feel confident about. For more severe stains, you may want to consider tooth whitening.

By coming for your regularly scheduled teeth cleanings and practicing good oral hygiene at home, you can protect your mouth, preserve your smile, and safeguard your overall health for years to come.
