It’s very important to attend your dental checkups. One of the reasons is because the treatments provided are necessary if you want a top-notch oral health and a healthy smile. To help you understand why, our dentist, Dr. Victoria Nguyen, is more than happy to share some facts about dental cleanings and exams and list the ways they can benefit you and your teeth and gums.

-Dental cleanings help you keep tooth decay and gum disease at bay because they remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline. Your toothbrush and floss cannot completely perform this task for you.

-Dental cleanings can clean the little nooks and crannies of your smile that are tough for your toothbrush and floss to reach. This can help you further prevent dental problems and even bad breath.

-Dental cleanings include a fluoride treatment that strengthens your tooth enamel and helps your smile prevent dental issues, especially enamel erosion.

-Dental cleanings can help you have a more attractive smile because it removes surface stains from your teeth. However, it will only remove minor stains, so if you need to remove stubborn stains, you can talk to your dentist about a professional whitening treatment.

-Dental exams make sure your teeth and gums are in tip-top shape.

-Dental exams give your dentist the opportunity to treat any dental issues if they are detected.
