How Dental Cleanings Manage Oral Health Risks

What are you doing to ensure that you stay safe against threats to your smile? Cavities and gum disease are familiar threats, but recognizing a threat and reacting to it properly are two different matters. People can leave themselves at risk in different ways. One issue is a lack of consistent preventive care from your dentist’s office. When you go too long without regular dental cleanings, you become vulnerable to tartar buildup, and you are more likely to experience difficulties with decay and gingivitis. Sunny Smiles can help you avoid these consequences. By regularly scheduling checkups and committing to good hygiene habits on your own, you can make yourself more resistant to problems that require professional dental care to address!

Are You Really Safe From Cavities And Gum Disease?

You can effectively protect yourself against threats to your smile when you commit to both consistent care at home and regular dental exams and cleanings. Care at home is important for protecting you against the accumulation of plaque and tartar deposits. If you brush and floss thoroughly, with care taken to reach even those harder to access areas, you can keep your enamel clean and healthy. You can also protect yourself by limiting how much sugar you consume. You should also protect yourself by keeping up with your regular checkups, as they protect you when tartar buildup forms, or when more serious problems occur.

Committing To Regular Dental Exams And Cleanings

With regular dental exams and cleanings, you can avoid more serious consequences related to poor oral health. If you do have a problem, it can be caught and treated in a timely manner. For example, if you have symptoms of gingivitis, you can have a special periodontal cleaning that will remove bacteria from the roots of teeth. You can also have a small cavity caught and treated with a dental filling before there are complications that affect your tooth structure more seriously.

Of course, even when you have no need for restorative services, you still benefit from your regular dental checkups and cleanings. Cleanings fight the buildup of plaque as well as tartar so that you are less likely to experience problems in the future. Tartar buildup is of particular concern because once these deposits form, they will remain a problem until your next professional cleaning.
