Spring is the season of new beginnings when trees begin to blossom, the days become longer, and many people start to open up and clean out their houses after what always seems like a long winter. Anyone who “spring cleans” their home every year knows just how much of a difference a deep clean can make – you feel more energetic, refreshed, and perhaps even happier. Did you know that you can also get these feelings from a springtime dental cleaning?
Many patients tell us that, after their dental cleanings with our hygienists, their teeth feel so smooth and squeaky clean. Why is this? Professional dental cleanings are more than simple brushings and flossings. In fact, bi-annual preventive cleanings remove plaque build-up that accumulates on teeth, even if you brush and floss every single day. The smoothness you feel afterward? That’s truly clean teeth.
Yes, you will always get a cleaning at your bi-annual dental checkups, but these appointments are also about so much more. Your dentist in Clinton Township is also focusing on the prevention of disease, cavities, and other potential problems during these visits.
Oral health is directly related to overall health, and as such, dental care should be a top priority of your overall healthcare routine. After all, many health problems may first show signs in the mouth such as diabetes, kidney disease, certain cancers, and heart disease. The best way to protect your teeth and keep your mouth and body healthy is to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day, and see your dentist in Clinton Township for cleanings and checkups at least every six months.
