Did you know that it’s strongly recommended to attend a routine dental cleaning and exam every 6 months? If not, now you do! Dental cleanings are vital if you want strong, healthy, and beautiful chompers for a lifetime, and we ask that you do everything you can to make your appointments a priority. There are many benefits to a dental cleaning, and three of those benefits are:

It prevents cavities
Dental cleanings are just that: dental cleanings. This means that our team will professionally scrub each tooth in your smile to free it from the harmful substances that threaten to destroy it with tooth decay. Our team will also give you a fluoride treatment to strengthen and nourish your smile, which will help prevent tooth decay in the future. The treatment generally comes in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish.

It prevents tooth loss
One of the main causes of tooth loss in the world today is gum disease, and the only way to prevent the disease is with dental cleanings. Gum disease develops when the plaque on your smile continues to grow on and harm your teeth. Our team will remove the plaque during the cleaning and give you a higher chance at preventing this dangerous dental issue.

It helps brighten your smile
During your appointment, our dental team will polish each tooth in your smile. The polish will lift the stains from your chompers and will add a shiny tint to your smile.

Dental cleanings can also save you money in the future as well as prevent major health issues, like heart disease and strokes. Dr. Pooja Goel and our Smiles for Life Dental Group team care for you and your health, which is why we encourage you to call 408-241-6501 today and schedule your next dental cleaning and exam. We are more than happy to help you!
