Teeth cleanings provide more benefits than simply a beautiful, white smile. From protecting your oral health to saving you money, here’s why regular dental cleanings are so important.

Many people want to avoid sitting in the dental chair at all costs. However, the upkeep of your oral health, through regular dental checkups and cleanings is extremely important.

In fact, seeing a dentist every six months will: 

  • Keep your smile bright and stain-free.
  • Lower your dental costs
  • Help prevent your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease or stroke
  • Ensure you keep your natural teeth for many years

Benefits of Regular Dental Cleanings

If you think that scheduling regular visits to your dentist without any signs of pain, toothache, or decay, is throwing away money, you couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, the cost of regular teeth cleanings is much less than the cost of extensive treatments, such as restorative work, to fix extreme dental problems.

Consider This

If you leave a cavity untreated or undetected by your dentist, it most likely will come to a point when you’ll require an expensive and invasive root canal. However, with routine visits and teeth cleanings, a cavity can be detected and treated with a simple filling, which will put a much smaller dent in your wallet.

Benefits of Dental Cleanings

  • Having your teeth cleaned every six months will remove any harmful plaque and undesirable stains, giving your teeth a healthy polish.
  • You’ll be able to avoid gum disease, which apart from pain, can lead to halitosis (bad breath) and tooth loss.
  • Teeth cleaning will help you avoid the need for dentures, which can be a costly treatment, especially if you’re considering implants.
  • Preventative measures, such as sealants, can work to fight off harmful bacteria and keep your smile protected and healthy.
  • With regular checkups and cleans, you can ensure that certain oral conditions such as cavities and gum disease, don’t become big (and expensive) problems. 



Save Money By Practicing Good Dental Hygiene at Home

Regular dental visits are not the only thing that can lower your dental costs. Maintaining your oral health by practicing good dental hygiene at home is also very important.

Some of the things you may want to consider doing, include: 

  • Brush your teeth twice daily and floss at least once a day.
  • Avoid habits that are harmful to your teeth, such as tobacco use and high sugar intake.
  • If you clench your teeth or suffer from bruxism, it’s important to visit your dentist for treatment.
  • Eat foods that are beneficial for your oral health and avoid high sugar intake and eating too many acidic foods, as this can wear off tooth enamel.
  • Don’t delay any dental treatments. If you feel anxious about being in the dental chair, talk to your dentist about how sedation dentistry can help.
  • If you play sports, protect your teeth by purchasing a custom mouthguard from your dentist.
  • Use the correct tools for cleaning your teeth and don’t brush too hard, as this can be harmful to your teeth and gums.
