Ah, the dentist. The place we all love to hate. But did you know that going to the dentist for regular cleanings is crucial for your oral health? Not only can it help prevent cavities and gum disease, but it can also catch early signs of other health issues. So, it’s time to put on your big kid pants and schedule that cleaning.

 

Avoiding Cavities

Let’s talk about cavities. No one wants ‘em, but we’ve all had ‘em. Regular cleanings can help prevent cavities by removing plaque and tartar buildup. Plus, your dentist at Access Dental can give you tips on brushing and flossing techniques to keep your pearly whites, well, white!

Here are 4 ways (That you should already be doing) to avoid cavities

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  2. Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles from between teeth
  3. Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks, as they can contribute to tooth decay
  4. Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings to catch and treat any cavities early

 

Avoiding Gum Disease

Gum disease is no joke. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other health issues. But with regular dental check-ups and cleanings, your dentist at Access Dental can catch early signs of gum disease and give you tips on how to improve your oral hygiene. Say goodbye to bleeding gums and hello to a healthy smile!

 

Getting a dental cleaning may not be the most exciting thing on your to-do list, but it’s definitely one of the most important. From preventing cavities and gum disease to catching early signs of other health issues, regular dental cleanings can keep you smiling for years to come. Plus, you get a free toothbrush at the end of it all. Who doesn’t love free stuff? So, go ahead and schedule that cleaning. Your smile will thank you!
