Good oral hygiene is not only important to have a healthy smile, but it impacts several other areas of your body. Gum infections have been linked to multiple cardiovascular diseases, and could be a warning sign of serious health problems. To prevent such issues, we recommend visiting our office in Sunset, Utah at least twice per year for dental cleanings and examinations.
While at our office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and ensure that our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us.
Why You Need Dental Cleanings and Examinations
We often have people ask us about dental cleanings and examinations. If you are coming in every six months and you do not have a cavity, we deem that a sign of proper oral health. However, we do have patients with increased risk of oral health problems, which lands them in the dental chair frequently for dental work. Visiting every six months for dental cleanings is an important step you can take to prevent the following conditions:
- Prevent gum disease.
- Detect oral cancer.
- Healthy smile.
- Oral health.
- Proper overall health
Caring for your teeth not only requires proper oral health, it requires proper overall health. We can provide you with information on maintaining a healthy diet to reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease. Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists. Please let us know if you have any questions.
