There’s no time like the present.
As everyone knows, with summer almost over and people of all ages getting ready to head back to school and other endeavors, it gets harder and harder to find the time for dental appointments. Before things get too busy, take our advice. Start the Fall season with a smile that’s clean, fresh, and in tip-top shape. Getting a checkup and a professional cleaning can help prevent unnecessary dental health setbacks, discomfort, and lost work or school hours in the months ahead.
How a professional cleaning benefits your smile
While maintaining a healthy smile depends upon keeping your teeth and gums clean at home, even for the best brushers and flossers, it’s difficult to reach every nook and cranny between the teeth and gums. For this reason, we emphasize the importance of professional cleanings. In this way, our hygienist can thoroughly remove any accumulated plaque and tartar from between the teeth and gums, including areas that you may have missed. Since dental plaque harbors the bacteria responsible for cavities and gum disease, its removal prevents these disease processes from occurring. Following a dental cleaning and polishing, which removes any superficial stains from your teeth, your mouth will feel fresh and clean.
Checkup and cleaning visits also represent an opportunity to educate patients in the best oral hygiene homecare methods and routines to maintain a healthy smile. In addition to cleaning and polishing the teeth, our hygienist will carefully explain and demonstrate proper brushing, flossing, and other oral care practices. Also, as part of our comprehensive preventive care program, we provide nutritional guidance on healthy dietary choices.
Taking care of your smile supports optimal health in every way.
It’s essential to keep in mind that maintaining good oral health also supports your overall health. Conditions affecting the teeth and gums can also have consequences on the health of the rest of your body. At the office of Stunning Smiles of Las Vegas, we provide comprehensive and integrated care to help patients of all ages enjoy optimal oral health and wellness.
