Dental Cleanings in Richardson, TX

dental consultationIt is important to have your teeth cleaned every six months because plaque and tartar (hardened deposits) can build up on the teeth and cause tooth decay and gum disease. This buildup can lead to serious medical problems later in life.

Preventative dentistry is the only way to go. Regular dental exams and cleaning prevent many major dental problems from occurring.

Dental Cleaning Questions

Let’s get into some of the most frequently asked questions some patients may have:

Why is dental cleaning so important?

Is dental health is directly related to overall health?

How often should you clean your teeth?

What methods should you use to clean your teeth?

Many people are not aware of the importance of routine dental cleanings. This is especially true for adults. However, routine dental cleanings are just as important for adults as they are for children. Why? Simply because plaque and tartar build up on the teeth over time. And if this build-up isn’t removed by an oral hygiene professional, it can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Importance of Having Dental Cleanings Performed Twice a Year

Dental problems can lead to much more than embarrassment. Untreated dental disease has been linked to:

Heart disease
Stroke
Kidney failure
Even cancer.

Not only that, if they are not treated early, many dental problems can lead to pain and discomfort that lasts a lifetime.

Gum Disease Signs

Bad Breath SignsWe recommend that everyone who is 18 years old or older have a comprehensive dental exam and cleaning every two years. It will greatly increase your chances of avoiding periodontal (gum) disease and the related problems.

Bad breath is one of the first signs of gum disease and it can lead to much more serious problems if not treated early.

Gum disease is very common among adults and can lead to tooth loss. If you have any kind of oral infection it can also lead to other health problems.

Dental Cleanings for Children

Dentist for KidsTooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children today. It is estimated that 70% of all school-age children have tooth decay. This is true even in places that have the best municipal dental programs in the country.

Tooth decay can lead to other health problems such as bone loss and infections. Children with untreated tooth decay are at much higher risk for developing asthma and respiratory infections.

Untreated cavities can also lead to problems with eating and speaking, as well as behavior and learning difficulties. Untreated tooth decay can lead to more extensive and expensive treatments later in life. When it is left untreated, the decay can spread to the nerve inside the tooth, causing tooth pain and sometimes requiring extraction of the tooth
