Why teeth cleaning is important
You brush your teeth twice a day (or should be) and floss so why do you need to have a cleaning done by the dentist? A cleaning by the dentist or hygienist can find pockets between the gum and tooth that allows bacteria to grow and removes any tartar or plaque left after your daily oral hygiene which will save you money. This tartar or plaque left on and between the teeth can cause infection from bacteria growth, decay, and or gum disease. Decay and gum disease can lead to teeth that must be filled or extracted which costs you money. If the tooth has been left with decay or bacteria growth for a long period of time it can lead to a root canal and a crown, which can be costly. Having a tooth extracted can lead to bone loss Also, severe periodontal disease can lead to deep infection and loss of bone.
Having your teeth cleaned also, helps keep them whiter and reduces bad breath.
