Don’t Underestimate the Power of Professional Teeth Cleaning

Dental Hygiene

A professional teeth cleaning by a skilled dental hygienist is essential to basic dental care. With more than 90 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 64 afflicted with at least one cavity, and tooth decay being the second most common health condition in the United States, trips to the dentist must become a higher priority. Brushing and flossing alone can’t remove all the bacteria that contribute to cavities and gum disease. Whether it’s a lack of insurance, difficulty finding an affordable dentist, or outright fear, don’t skip bi-annual trips to your dentist in Flint.

You need to have a professional teeth cleaning twice a year. Within 24 hours after having a teeth cleaning by your dental hygienist, the bacteria that was removed already begin re-colonizing. It’s easy to see why proper dental care is a team effort—neither you, your dentist, nor your dental hygienist can alone keep your mouth healthy.

The recommendation for twice-daily brushing, once-daily flossing, and using mouthwash is to keep excessive amounts of bacteria from building up. Some plaque will inevitably build up, however, and that is when you must have a dental hygienist perform a professional teeth cleaning. At about the six-month mark, bacteria that can’t be eliminated by your own dental care regimen will need to be removed professionally.

Missing that six-month dental appointment can lead to a teeth cleaning with intense scraping. Although a teeth cleaning is a primary aspect of the appointment, it is not the only reason for a dental visit. Your dentist and dental hygienist can also detect early signs of tooth decay and gum disease. The earlier these kinds of conditions are detected, the greater the possibility for effective treatment.

If you are considering skipping a visit to a dentist in Flint for a routine teeth cleaning, think again—your oral health depends on it.
