Our Wellington Dentist Emphasizes the Importance of Regular Cleanings

Some people are inclined to put off their dental cleanings because they don’t think they’re that important. However, regular dental cleanings are crucial for the prevention of dental issues and the detection of certain mouth diseases. If you tend to put off your cleanings, it can lead to even bigger problems down the road. Our Wellington dentist highlights the importance of regular cleanings below.

Preventing Cavities & Gum Disease

Over time, plaque and tartar build-up on the surface of the teeth and begin to go below the gumline. If this is allowed to continue, it can lead to bacteria multiplying and getting in the small cracks in your teeth, causing cavities. The bacteria can also get beneath the gum line, leading to gum disease. Even with perfect dental hygiene, hardened tartar and plaque can be difficult to impossible to remove on your own. After this removal, we can apply a fluoride solution to protect against cavities as well. Our dentist can help you prevent these dental problems with a professional cleaning!

Detecting Mouth Diseases & Dental Issues

If you have any dental problems that need attention, getting them taken care of as soon as possible is ideal. Any problem can become more serious (and more expensive) the longer you put off treatment. For example, it is much easier to treat a cavity early than allowing the decay to progress to the point of needing a root canal!

Also, when you go in for your dental cleaning, our dentist will do a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, cheeks, neck, and tongue to check for oral cancer. Early detection is extremely important for oral cancers and regular checkups can help with detection and receiving treatment as quickly as possible.

Keep Your Teeth Bright!

Aside from preventing and detecting diseases to maintain a healthy mouth, regular cleanings also allow our dentist to remove stains and polish your teeth! Additionally, whitening treatments can be done during your exam appointments to keep your teeth sparkling.
