Say Cheese: Keep Your Smile Healthy with Regular Dental Cleanings | Quantum Health Dental
We understand that dental appointments may not be at the top of your to-do list, but we want to remind you that regular cleanings play a crucial role in maintaining good oral health.
According to the American Dental Association, only 58% of adults in the United States visit the dentist at least once a year, despite the recommendation for twice-yearly visits. This means that many people are missing out on the benefits of regular dental cleanings.
Did you know that brushing and flossing alone cannot remove all of the plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth? Professional cleanings help to remove any buildup that has accumulated, which can cause gum disease, cavities, and other oral health problems.
Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nearly half of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease. This is a concerning statistic, as gum disease can lead to tooth loss and other health problems.
But the good news is that a study published in the Journal of Dental Research found that professional dental cleanings can reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease by up to 70%. This underscores the importance of regular cleanings and exams.
Our hygienists are specially trained to detect any potential issues with your teeth and gums. Early detection can help to prevent more serious problems down the road and can save you time, money, and discomfort. Regular dental cleanings can also help prevent oral cancer by detecting early signs of the disease, as reported by the American Dental Hygienists' Association.
We recommend that you visit us at least twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. However, if you have a history of gum disease or other oral health issues, your hygienist may recommend more frequent visits.
Remember, good oral health is not just about having a beautiful smile; it is also essential to your overall health and well-being. We care about your health and want to help you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
If you have any questions about the importance of regular dental cleanings or would like to schedule an appointment with one of our hygienists, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for choosing Quantum Health Dental for your oral health needs.
