Dr. Kurt Schneider and his team of Mission Viejo Dentists know that knowledge is power, in terms of oral health. Here are a few reasons why it is vital to have regular teeth cleaning appointments:
Keep Your Teeth
Since gum disease is one of the leading causes of losing adult teeth, regular dental check- ups and cleanings are vital to keeping as many teeth as you can.
Early Detection of Dental Problems
Your dentist and hygienist will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth or gums. Early detection of cavities, cracked fillings and gum disease are easy to manage.
Maintain Good Oral Health
Your dental hygienist will help to ensure that you are practicing good oral health, by their examination of your teeth, and their comparison of them with your previous dental records. If you are missing something in regards your oral hygiene, a hygienist will help put you back on the right path.
Create/Follow a Plan of Treatment
If your dentist diagnoses any problems in your mouth, they will most likely give you a treatment plan.
Your dental hygienist can remove most coffee and tea stains — even tobacco stains. During your cleaning, your hygienist will also polish your teeth.
Prevent Bad Breath
Good oral hygiene is vital, to avoid unpleasant breath.
