Spring Cleaning & Your Dental Health


It’s that time of year where we are out with the old and in with the new. You may find yourself dusting and organizing as spring fast approaches. While keeping your house in tip top shape is great it’s also important to keep your oral health at it’s best as well.

So why is it important to have your teeth cleaned?

Not only does a cleaning take away those coffee and wine stains it also serves many purposes to help better your overall health. Plaque left on your teeth leads to tooth decay. As well know tooth decay can become painful and if left untreated can become costly. Tartar or calculus left under your gums can lead to periodontal disease and eventually possible loss of your teeth. You can decrease the likelihood of either of these two situations by regular dental cleanings.

When to schedule?

It is recommended to see your dentist every 6 months. At that time you will receive a cleaning and exam. Staying up to date on your dental health helps to fight tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Just like the a clean well organized home that everyone loves, we all the feeling of clean teeth and minty fresh breath. While in your in your organizational mood, pull out your planner or login into your Google calendar and call your dental office to schedule your dental cleaning.
