The fact is that too many people are neglecting an important aspect of their health, whether they cannot afford dental cleanings and checkups, or cannot find the time. The health of your mouth may not appear as important as other aspects of your health, but it is in fact more important than you think.

Dental cleaning offers many benefits, but avoiding the dentist includes many risks. Our dental team at Singing River Dentistry provides teeth cleaning to prevent dental problems such as tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis.

Early Detection

At least twice a year, you should have your teeth cleaned and checked by our dentist so they can detect any problems. Even though some issues can be apparent through signs such as toothaches, most dental problems can only be identified through x-rays and examination of the oral cavity. The likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease worsening if you do not visit the dentist is very high. Having regular dental cleanings can prevent gum disease and tooth decay before they become more serious problems. An untreated dental cavity can result in a root canal or even a dental implant if it is not addressed.

Save Time and Money

When oral health problems are not treated, they will end up costing you a great deal in the long run. If you do not catch tooth decay when you have your routine dental checkup, you may end up having to undergo a root canal or get a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. The costs of these procedures can reach thousands of dollars if dental insurance is not available. You can avoid these costs, as well as pain and discomfort, by coming in for regular dental cleanings. This will not only save you money but also save you time. As an example, if you need to undergo a root canal due to poor oral health, you may need to make several appointments. There will be one for a consultation, one for surgery, and a couple for checkups. Hence, if you are avoiding a dental cleaning because of a lack of time, consider how time-consuming a serious dental problem will be in the future.

Prevent Tartar and Plaque Buildup

Plaque is a film that forms on the surface of your teeth with millions of bacteria trapped within. The plaque will eventually turn to tartar if not removed. When this occurs, your teeth begin to appear stained and unhealthy. In addition to being unsightly, plaque and tartar buildup can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. By visiting a dentist for a routine cleaning, they can remove the plaque before it turns to tartar.

Improve Overall Well-being

Did you know that oral health affects other areas of your health? People often avoid dentists because they think it's less important than treating other physical health issues. Health problems associated with poor oral health include heart disease. Having tooth decay can cause painful toothaches that lead to other health problems like migraines and insomnia. In the long run, untreated tooth decay can result in a serious blood infection. Dentists are often able to detect serious health issues, like oral cancer, that you wouldn't know about otherwise. Poor dental health can lead to low birth weight and premature birth for pregnant women.
