Are You Getting a Professional Teeth Cleaning Often Enough?

Dental Hygiene

Getting a professional teeth cleaning is important for keeping your smile bright and your teeth and gums healthy. It can even improve your general health. Some dental insurance policies only cover one cleaning per year, but your dentist and dental hygienist are both likely to recommend a teeth cleaning every six months. This twice-yearly recommendation is backed by some very solid reasoning.

Unfortunately, plaque returns quickly after a professional teeth cleaning. While teeth cleaning removes the bacteria that cause plaque, it begins to re-form within 48 hours. Even if you practice meticulous at-home dental care, it’s inevitable that you’ll have some plaque reformation before your next teeth cleaning. The longer harmful plaque stays on your teeth, the more it will calcify, and you won’t be able to remove it yourself. It will require a teeth cleaning with the professional tools and skills of your dental hygienist.

Your dentist and dental hygienist can also discover early signs of oral problems that are much more serious than plaque and tartar. During a cleaning or exam, it’s easy to spot signs of oral cancer, new cavities, receding gums, and even signs of anemia or other medical problems. Since gum disease is linked to cardiovascular disease, catching it as early as possible can even lower your risk of heart attack and stroke.

If you haven’t made professional teeth cleaning a priority, it’s not too late. Schedule an appointment today with a dentist in Baltimore and get your mouth back on track. If you have a teeth cleaning twice a year, you are less likely to experience a heavy plaque and tartar buildup that could seriously affect your oral health.
