Start the New Year Off Right With a Teeth Cleaning, Cincinnati, Ohio

January is the perfect time to visit your dentist for a teeth cleaning. As the start of the year kicks off, you can embrace a renewed commitment to dental health—and get off on the right foot with a professional clean and polish. Read on to find out why this oral hygiene procedure is so important.

dentistEven with good dental care habits, including daily brushing and flossing, your teeth will experience a buildup of plaque over time. This sticky substance contains millions of harmful bacteria that damage the protective enamel of your teeth, leaving you more susceptible to gum disease and cavities.

A professional cleaning at the dental clinic can eliminate plaque that you are unable to address at home. Your dentist has special tools and techniques to reach even the toughest-to-get-to spots. For most people, a twice-annual teeth cleaning is sufficient. Others, like those with diabetes or individuals recovering from gum disease, may require more frequent treatment.

Lastly, your teeth cleaning is more than an opportunity to polish your pearly whites and get that minty fresh feeling. It also gives your dentist a chance to assess the health of your teeth and gums. If there are any problems, they can catch them early and ensure you get prompt treatment.

Most dental diseases, like cavities and periodontal disease, are preventable. Don’t fall victim to unnecessary oral illness this year. Get 2018 off to the right start with a visit to the dentist for a teeth cleaning. It’s the first step to keeping your smile shining all year long.
