You know getting professional dental cleanings is a good way to keep your smile white and bright, but did you know that it can also benefit your general health? It’s true, and strokes, heart disease, and infections have all been tied to gum disease. You can prevent these health issues by scheduling regular cleanings and checkups at our Marlboro, New Jersey, dental office, where you’ll also experience many other benefits.
No Out-of-Pocket Cleaning Expenses
Fortunately, most dental insurance understand that the best way to prevent other costly and painful dental problems is with regular cleanings, so they pay for most of the cost. This is a benefit you’re certainly going to want to take advantage of!
Prevent Bad Breath
There are many reasons why you might have bad breath, including:
- Food particles in and around your teeth that can increase bacteria
- Dry mouth
- Poor oral hygiene
- Smoking and tobacco
When you get a professional dental cleaning, we remove the plaque and bacteria that cause halitosis and bad breath. In addition, we examine your mouth for more serious conditions that could be contributing to your bad breath, like untreated cavities or gum disease.
If you’re suffering from bad breath, a professional cleaning could make all the difference.
Prevent Tooth Loss
If cavities go untreated, there’s the chance they may result in root canals, or the removal and replacement of teeth may become the only option. The best way to prevent tooth loss is to practice good oral hygiene habits, which include brushing and flossing regularly, and seeing your dentist every six months.
It’s important that you come in for regular appointments, as early detection of cavities and gum disease can help prevent any problems and treat any issues quickly and easily.
Prevent Oral Cancer
Despite oral cancer being highly treatable if diagnosed early, someone dies of oral cancer every hour in the United States. Symptoms of oral cancer may include:
- A sore that doesn’t heal on the lip or mouth
- White or reddish patches on the inside of the mouth
- Loose teeth
- Lumps or growths inside the mouth
- Pain in the mouth
- Pain in the ear
- Difficulty swallowing
All patients at Dental Care Marlboro will receive an oral cancer screening as part of your visit, helping to catch any signs of oral cancer that may be present.
Keep Your Smile Bright and White
Many common things can stain your teeth — coffee, red wine, tea, and tobacco — which also dull their appearance. A professional dental cleaning at Dental Care Marlboro can remove much of the staining, which leaves your teeth whiter and brighter.
