At Eagle Valley Family Dentistry, we know how important it is to get professional teeth cleaning to keep your smile healthy, clean, and looking great. Located just a few minutes from downtown Bellefonte, getting your teeth cleaned has never been easier. 

Why Teeth Cleaning is Important for Your Health

Do you keep skipping your teeth cleaning appointment? Or does it just seem like there are more important things that need to be done rather than getting your teeth cleaned?

 

If this sounds like you, you might be putting your mouth at risk. In fact, nearly 50% of Americans deal with some form of periodontal disease.

 

Not only is having your teeth professionally cleaned important for your mouth, but also having teeth cleanings twice a year is one of the most important things you can do to improve your overall health.

 

We’re just not talking about walking away with a brighter smile and fresh, minty breath. Having a teeth cleaning twice a year has some surprising health benefits, even early cancer detection!

Teeth Cleaning Prevents Gum Disease 

Every time you brush or floss, are you noticing your gums bleeding? This could be a sign of gum disease. Poor or inadequate brushing and flossing allows plaque to build up, causing an infection in your gums.

 

Your mouth is a haven for bacteria, and when combined with other particles, plaque constantly forms around your teeth and gums. If you don’t brush enough or have your teeth professionally cleaned, the plaque hardens into tartar. And once you have tartar, bad news…you can’t simply brush it away.

 

Gums are important because they hold your teeth in place. Going without treatment, gum disease can eventually lead to painful chewing or worse…loss of your teeth.

Teeth Cleaning Detects Early Signs of Cancer 

One American dies every hour from oral cancer, according to the Oral Cancer Foundation. During your routine teeth cleaning, your teeth aren’t just getting cleaned. Your dentist is also checking for signs of oral cancer.

 

Unfortunately, the death rate is so high because the cancer is not caught early enough. By making sure you have your regular teeth cleaning, you are also making sure to catch any possible life-threatening issues.
