Find out why simple at-home brushing isn’t enough to keep teeth and gums their healthiest.professional teeth cleanings

We know that you take time every day to make sure that your teeth and gums stay clean. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily can go a long way to preventing decay and gum disease. Of course, at-home care should never take the place of visiting your Smyrna, GA, dentist Dr. Michael Nguyen. Find out why coming in every six months for routine cleanings is important if you value your oral health.

To Catch Decay and Gum Disease

This might seem obvious, but one of the reasons you should visit our Smyrna, GA, general dentist every six months is to be able to pinpoint problems as soon as possible. Most people will face decay at some point during their lifetime. Of course, not all decay has to turn into a cavity with careful monitoring and proper oral hygiene. By coming in for routine cleanings we can catch problems early and treat them accordingly.

To Screen for Oral Cancer

A simple, painless visit to our office twice a year for cleanings could also just save your life. You probably don’t even notice but not only do we clean your teeth but we also check the oral tissue to make sure that there are no early signs of oral cancer. If you don’t come in for routine checkups most people don’t start to notice symptoms of cancer until it’s become more advanced. These screenings twice a year are vital for everyone.

To Keep Your Smile Radiant

Sure, our goal is to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth but this isn’t the only thing our professional dental cleanings can offer. Our professional tools allow us to effectively remove stains from the surface of your teeth to get your smile whiter and brighter. If you are someone who drinks a lot of coffee and battles stains, keeping up with these cleanings could certainly help.
