With the onset of spring you may have the urge to throw open the windows, flush out all that stale, trapped winter air and welcome in the fresh spring breeze. Who doesn’t love the smell of grass and trees blooming and inviting the warming rays of sunshine into your home makes us all feel better! Perhaps it’s also time to consider a spring -cleaning for your mouth! If it’s been awhile since your last visit to Brinkley Dental, or you’re interested in starting a new spring routine, now is the perfect time to book an appointment!
Spring – cleaning is a chance to rid our homes of anything that just doesn’t belong anymore and it’s the same when your Dentist or Dental Hygienist clean your teeth. Plaque and tartar is scraped away, detritus removed from those hard to reach back molars, bacteria build-up from between the teeth is flushed out and gums are checked for more than just regular “wear and tear.” Having teeth cleaned should be a regular part of your dental routine for everyone in the family. The obvious benefit to regular cleanings include the prevention of developing any oral health issues by allowing your Dentist to thoroughly and proactively check for cavities, periodontal disease, tooth alignment, the development of wisdom teeth and more. Plaque and tartar are foreign matter and our body’s immune system will kick into overdrive in an effort to prevent infection from developing. Getting your teeth cleaned is a simple, painless and effective method of maintaining not only your oral health but your overall health too.
Here is one last important reminder about teeth cleaning. As with any dental treatment, if you are suffering from any kind of ongoing medical condition for which you are receiving treatment, contact the Dentist first before coming in. To prevent the possible spread of infection, some patients with compromised immune systems may have to take an oral antibiotic before any kind of treatment, even a cleaning. Don’t let that stop you however – because clean teeth are an integral part of good overall health!
