5 Reasons To Schedule A Dental Cleaning Today

March 10th, 2017

professional dental cleaning NYC1. Protect Your Gums

It’s not only extreme tooth decay that can damage a tooth until it is beyond saving. Gum disease that leads to bone loss is just as detrimental. Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque that creates pockets of infection between the gums and tooth roots. This leads to periodontitis, gum recession, and eventual bone loss. A professional cleaning eliminates the plaque before it can cause the gums to loosen.

2. Prevent Cavities

Even if you brush and floss your teeth morning and night, plaque can build up. We have many patients who are observant brushers but are surprised when our hygienist discovers plaque on their teeth.

3. Check for Oral Cancer

The Oral Cancer Foundation relates this unfortunate news: oral cancer claims one life approximately every hour – that’s 48,250 deaths a year.1

4. Oral Health and Overall Health Go Hand in Hand

Your mouth is not a separate entity from the rest of the body, but many people treat it that way. Some get regular preventative services for physical conditions but miss their teeth. At The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S., we’ve often wondered about this frequent disconnect. Did you know that the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes appear to increase with poor oral health? Besides, your lifestyle is significantly impacted when you have tooth pain, tooth loss, gum disease, or dentures.

5. It May Be Free

Many New York dental insurance plans cover twice-yearly dental cleanings. Even if you don’t have dental insurance, cleanings are one of the most competitively-priced ways to maintain ideal oral health.

Dear Dr. Handshuh, I don’t know how to thank you for the way I was treated in your office yesterday. While fixing a “chipped tooth” and filling a small cavity may seem like minor procedures to some, to me the prospect was overwhelming.
