Why Regular Dental Cleanings Are Important for Your Oral Health, Columbus, Nebraska

Most people know the importance of brushing their teeth twice a day or remembering to floss. While it can be all too easy to put off your regular dental cleaning appointments when life gets busy, dentist appointments might be the most important key to your oral health. The team at Stadler Dental Care in Columbus, NE, explains why.

Why They’re So Important

Unfortunately, brushing and flossing your teeth don’t get rid of the all the built-up plaque. If plaque is left in the crevices of your teeth, it can turn into tartar and get into the tissues of your gums. If left untreated, it can easily develop into gum disease, which not only damages your gums and can lead to tooth loss, but can also affect your body’s health.

If problems are caught early, it can increase your chance of avoiding tooth loss or having to pay more in the long run for dental complications.

What Happens During Dental Cleanings

During your appointment, a hygienist will examine your gums and teeth, looking for any signs of gum disease or cavities. From there, they’ll start to clean any built up plaque off the teeth, getting in those hard-to-reach areas. Afterward, the hygienist will polish the teeth by using a tool and some toothpaste-like gel to finish off your smile. After everything is thoroughly cleaned, the dentist will take a final look and see if there are any concerns in the mouth.
