Dental cleaning helps prevent a number of dental problems like gum disease and infection, and other medical problems like bone loss, heart disease, and stroke. It is important that you visit your dentist regularly for a dental check-up and cleaning to maintain good oral hygiene and health.
When you visit your dentist for dental cleaning, your dentist checks whether there are signs of oral cancer which should be treated at an early stage. You are at high risk of having oral cancer if you are a smoker. Signs of oral cancer can be undetected, because it can seem like you have an ulcer, cold sore, or a discoloration of tissue. Your dentist can spot a lesion that looks cancerous. If this lesion in your mouth or on your lips did not heal within two weeks and you have difficulty swallowing, then you should visit your dentist immediately.
Dental cleaning also helps prevent gum disease. Gum disease is an infection in your gum tissues and bone that keep your teeth in place. It occurs when there is a buildup of plaque, a colorless deposit, and tartar in your teeth. Observing poor oral hygiene, smoking, clenching, and grinding your teeth are some of the factors that cause gum disease. Swollen gums, bad breath, tooth sensitivity, abscessed teeth, and tooth loss are signs that you have gum disease.
If you show signs of gum disease, you need to see dentists in Novato CA as soon as possible, because gum disease can lead to heart attacks and strokes. This is why you need to have dental cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy, reducing your risk of the abovementioned illnesses.
Gingivitis, a type of gum disease, increases your risk of heart disease and stroke because of bacteria found in the infected areas of your mouth. If left untreated by dentists Novato, it may lead to periodontitis, a severe disease which can cause break down of the bone and tissue in the infected area of your mouth, causing tooth and bone loss.
Dental cleaning helps detect early and prevent dental problems in your teeth and gums It also safeguards your physical health by preventing heart disease and stroke. In short, through dental cleaning and check-ups, dentists Novato make sure that you are in good oral and physical health.
