Everyone should have regular exams and cleanings to improve health and prevent disease. Not only do regular dental cleanings improve your appearance and reduce pain and sensitivity, evidence suggests it may reduce your risk of disease and make you feel better. The hard build-up in your mouth is a reservoir for bacteria that can only be removed by a professional. While brushing and flossing are important, they aren't enough to prevent or remove calculus, or tartar which builds up on your teeth over time.
Tooth loss is not aging related, and many older patients still have most of their teeth. Why is this? One possible reason is that people who retain their teeth tend to live longer lives. It is possible to maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime, but this takes commitment. Just like being in good cardiovascular shape takes time and effort, maintaining your teeth means following a healthy daily hygiene regimen and coming in for regular dental exams and cleanings.
Haven't been to the dentist in a few years and afraid about what we might have to say? Regardless of the condition of your teeth you are better off coming in sooner than later because problems discovered today will be less complicated, less painful and less expensive for you to deal with. Truly, there is no better value for your dental health than a routine dental hygiene visit.
