Protect Your Beautiful Smile with Routine Dental Hygiene and Cleanings

While brushing and flossing your teeth two to three times a day, is a commendable effort to maintain oral hygiene, the truth is that no one can attain perfect oral health on their own. To ensure your teeth are in tip-top shape, you must visit your dentist at least twice a year for a bi-annual examination and professional cleaning service. This cleaning can remove plaque buildup your toothbrush can’t and perhaps even brighten your smile. At the Hope Dental Care Centre, our dental hygienists can remove plaque from teeth and remove stains from teeth.

Why are Routine Dental Hygiene and Professional Cleaning So Important

The benefits of a daily home dental hygiene routine are vital to your smile’s long and short-term health. By vigilantly brushing and flossing several times a day, you can prevent many disastrous oral issues later on. However, this doesn’t mean you can ignore visiting your dentist.

You must visit your dentist twice yearly for an examination and routine cleaning. The exam can find potential problems, allowing your doctor to take action with the proper treatment before the problem grows into a more significant issue. And the teeth cleaning service can remove the built-up plaque that your toothbrush can’t remove. Over time, this plaque hardens enough, making it impossible for your brush to dislodge from the surface of your tooth. That’s where a dentist’s cleaning tools break up plaque buildup, also known as tartar or calculus.

The Benefits of Routine Professional Cleaning

Routine professional in-office dental cleanings can offer several incredible benefits, such as:

Preventing cavities

By removing tartar buildup, you help prevent tooth decay which leads to cavities (holes) in your teeth that grow larger over time if left untreated.

Preventing gum disease

Plaque also irritates gum tissue, causing gum disease. The infection can cause gums to become swollen and red, even bleed. If not treated promptly, the disease can spread to other tissues and cause tooth loss. And it can spread further through your blood. Gum disease has been linked to significant health issues such as heart disease and cancer!

Improve your overall health

As you can see from the information above, taking care of your teeth also means protecting your overall health from illnesses down the road. This is why it’s essential to maintain regular visits with a dental professional you can trust.

Giving you a whiter and brighter smile

Another benefit to bi-annual cleanings is that they contribute to helping you maintain a brighter, healthier smile. Without professional cleaning, tartar buildup can cause ugly, yellow, tough-to-remove stains.
