Dental cleanings are vital for a top-notch oral health and smile, which is why our dentist, Dr. Dickson Ufomata, strongly encourages you to keep up on your dental checkups every six months. However, if you don’t understand why dental cleanings are important, you’ll most likely place the appointments on the bottom of your priority list. So, our dentist would like to help you understand the importance of dental cleanings by listing the things they can do for you here:

-Prevent cavities (The cleaning removes the bacteria and plaque that cause cavities)

-Prevent gum disease (The cleaning removes the plaque and tartar that cause gum disease. Only your dental cleaning can do this)

-Brighten your smile (The polishing treatment can remove minor stains from your tooth enamel to give you a brighter smile)

-Freshen your breath (The cleaning can remove bacteria and other substances that cause bad breath)

-Strengthen your tooth enamel (The fluoride treatment can strengthen the outer shells of your teeth to help them fight cavities)

-Boost your overall health (Because the overall and oral health are connected, cleaning and caring for your smile can boost the overall health of your body)

-Help you save money (The cleaning helps you prevent dental problems that can be quite expensive and invasive to treat)
