Patients are our top priority at Montz & Maher Dental Group in Friendswood. In order to stay healthy, we recommend that you get your teeth cleaned twice a year.
Here are 5 reasons to schedule your cleaning today.
1. Protect Your Gums
It’s not only cavities that can damage a tooth. Gum disease can be just as harmful. Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque that creates pockets of infection between the gums and tooth roots. This leads to periodontitis, gum recession, and eventual bone loss. A professional cleaning eliminates the plaque before it can cause the gums to loosen.
2. Prevent Cavities
Even if you brush and floss your teeth morning and night, plaque can build up. It’s the leading cause of tooth decay. Eating away at tooth enamel, this acidic substance can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings.
3. Check for Oral Cancer
An oral cancer screening is part of your general dentistry appointment. We have advanced oral screening technology at both of our offices in Friendswood and Pearland and can detect non-healing sores, red or white spots, or lumps that may indicate cancer.
4. Oral Health and Overall Health Go Hand in Hand
Your mouth is not a separate entity from the rest of the body, but many people treat it that way. Some get regular medical exams but forget about their teeth. Your mouth and smile are critical to your overall health – see your dentist regularly as well.
5. It May Be Free
Many dental insurance plans cover cleanings at 100%. Even if you don’t have dental insurance, cleanings are one of the best ways to maintain great oral health.
