When you visit the dentist for your routine dental cleaning, you should know what this treatment includes and how it can assist you in achieving and maintaining good oral health. Dr. Cole Sutak and the team at Lone Star Smiles encourage residents in Lubbock, Texas, to schedule routine dental cleanings every six months to address any issues in the early stages and help maintain your smile.
A routine dental cleaning consists of an examination by our team to determine if you have any oral concerns that need to be addressed. A scaler is then used to remove any areas of excess plaque and build-up on your teeth. This process is then followed up by a toothpaste scrub paired with a high-performing toothbrush. The cleaning is then concluded with flossing and rinse from your dental team.
While some patients seem to think that regular dental cleaning is unnecessary, they could not be further from the truth. When you have routine dental cleanings and keep up with them, you protect your oral health and obtain many benefits.
One of the biggest problems that you can get inside your mouth is gum disease. The effect that it can have on your teeth is evident if your gums start to pull away from your teeth. There is also significant pain and discomfort that comes from gum disease and not treating it over time. With regular dental cleaning, it is identified earlier and treated.
Some of the most primary dental issues that patients have are with their roots and keeping them healthy. Once your roots start to expose, you can have increased sensitivity that affects eating and drinking, causing pain around the clock. If these damaged roots are not discovered in time, there could be long-term nerve damage to the exposed roots. With food, plaque, and other build-ups able to get into the roots, the risk for infection increases.
When you have check-ups and cleanings, you are keeping your teeth clean with their best appearance. If your teeth are clean, you feel much more confident and promote your best smile. Having confidence will improve all other aspects of your life. Without regular cleanings, you may become self-conscious about your smile, and your life quality will become impacted.
If you have experienced bad breath in the past because of your teeth, then a regular cleaning will help. You will feel more confident having close conversations and speaking to others privately without worrying about your breath.
