Summer Cleaning? Make Sure That Includes Teeth Cleaning, Too, Onalaska, Wisconsin

Brushing and flossing your teeth daily at home is only part of the battle against gum disease and tooth decay. Visiting a dentist at least twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning can also prevent cavities and whiten your smile. That’s why you should include a visit to Hulse Dental in Onalaska, WI, on your summer-cleaning checklist.

teeth cleaningDuring your visit, Dr. Hulse will perform a routine examination of your mouth and take diagnostic images as needed. Plus, a dental hygienist will remove tartar, plaque, and stains before applying a fluoride treatment to strengthen and clean your teeth. A thorough teeth cleaning will also include polishing your teeth, guidance on how to better brush and floss your teeth, and counseling on nutrition.

If you’re not convinced professional teeth cleaning is necessary, consider these benefits:

  • It Prevents Gum Disease: Built-up plaque is the leading cause of gum disease and tooth loss in children and adults. Left untreated, plaque spreads down the tooth, destroying your jawbone and causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Regular teeth cleanings and good oral hygiene habits can significantly reduce your chances of developing gum disease.
  • It Prevents Cavities: No one likes the sound of a dentist’s drill administering a filling, so limit this by coming to visit a dental hygienist for regular cleanings. Plaque eats away at enamel, causing problems that need to be treated.
  • It Saves You Money: Patients often don’t realize how much money they’ll spend because of poor dental hygiene until it’s too late. Tooth pain, cosmetic problems, cavities, and gum disease are the result of not properly cleaning your teeth. Insurance usually pays 100% for dental cleanings and oral exams, but a percentage of the cost of fillings, crowns, and dental implants comes out of your pocket.

Schedule your teeth cleaning and oral exam today by calling Dr. Kurt Hulse at (608) 783-1306. Our dental office is here to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come. You can also learn more about our services by visiting our website.
