Regular teeth cleanings from your family dentists in Easton, MD, can save your smile.

Do you need to get your teeth cleaned? If you can’t remember when you last visited your dentist for professional teeth cleaning, then it’s probably been too long. You should have your teeth cleaned every 6 months if you have a mouth that is generally healthy. If you are showing symptoms of gum disease, you should have your teeth cleaned every 3 to 4 months, or as your dentist recommends.

Your Easton, MD, family dentists, Dr. Irving Phillips and Dr. Wade Dressler of Dental Choice, offer a wide range of preventive and family dentistry services, including teeth cleanings to save your smile.

Why do you need regular dental cleanings?

  • Cleanings lower bacteria levels in your mouth which helps prevent gum and periodontal disease
  • Cleanings remove hard deposits like calculus or tartar and soft deposits like plaque to help prevent gum and periodontal disease
  • Cleanings are a great time for you to find out about all of the newest tips and tricks to help prevent gum and periodontal disease at home

Gum disease can be reversed, but only with diligent, frequent brushing and flossing, and visits to your dentist for professional teeth cleaning. If you let gum disease remain untreated, it can progress to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the number one reason why adults lose teeth. Once you have lost your teeth to periodontal disease, you will need to consider tooth replacement options.

When it comes to keeping your mouth healthy, it’s all about plaque removal. That’s because plaque contains millions of microscopic bacteria that destroy the health of your teeth and gums. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent this by removing deposits on your teeth and lowering bacteria levels.
