A teeth cleaning should be added to your to do list for every six months says Marietta Dentist, +Kirk Kimmerling DDS.  Studies show that regular professional cleanings every six months helps improve your overall oral health.  Cleanings give your dentist or hygienist a chance to evaluate daily oral routine and check for any signs of oral cancers. They can also make sure there are no troubled areas in the mouth and any evaluate for any necessary treatment plans.  Your family dentist should review brushing and flossing and give tips on how to improve. 

People that properly brush and floss regularly daily don’t experience much discomfort during a routine professional dental cleanings.  If sensitivity or discomfort occurs, it’s important to figure out why and how to prevent it.  Daily oral routines help alleviate any discomfort for future cleanings, due to healthier teeth and gums.  Most routine dental visits include an evaluation, cleaning and x-rays to properly make sure oral health is on track. 

Sometimes dental professionals will recommend preventative solutions to help maintain great oral health.  Removal or plaque or tartar, fluoride treatment, dental sealants or polishing teeth are just some examples.  Dentists usually will professionally clean any dentures or partial dentures you may have.  It’s important to fix any troubled areas with cavities or gum problems right away.  Cavities and gum disease will only worsen if not evaluated and treated, however it’s important to be proactive and try to prevent decay or gum disease before it starts.  Making sure that you are brushing and flossing correctly and adequately is a huge step in the right direction.
