Dental Cleanings and Checkups

When it comes to maintaining your oral health, getting regular dental cleanings and checkups should be at the top of your priority list.

While maintaining a good oral hygiene routine of daily brushing and flossing helps reduce the number of harmful bacteria in your mouth, it cannot eliminate it. This is why it is vital that you attend professional dental cleanings at least once every six months.

Why Are Dental Cleanings and Checkups Necessary?

When you eat and drink, your teeth become coated with harmful bacteria, also known as plaque. When plaque hardens into tartar, it can eat away at your tooth enamel, making you susceptible to cavities and tooth decay. When you come into Sunset Plaza Dental for a dental cleaning, our dental hygienist will be able to address the plaque and tartar in all the areas of your mouth using a special tool called a scaler.
Attending dental cleanings and checkups also provides your dentist with the chance to screen you for any abnormalities such as oral cancer, flag any other oral health issues, and create appropriate treatment plans.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Checkups?

Dental cleanings work as a form of preventative dentistry, stopping bacteria before they can cause harm or damage to your oral health. To maintain a healthy mouth, you should attend dental checkups at least twice a year. Some of the main advantages to attending dental cleanings include:

    Early detection of oral health issues.
    Minimizing the risk of severe health issues.
    A healthier-looking smile.
    Prevention of gum disease.
