Teeth Cleanings and Exams

If your teeth “look” healthy and you don’t see changes since your last teeth cleaning, you may think you can skip your six-month checkup. But, unfortunately, this is where you run into problems. Your Bastrop dentist has seen healthy smiles lose their luster due to neglecting teeth cleanings!

Teeth cleanings and dental checkups every six months—coupled with excellent at-home care—are the keys to healthy teeth for life. And your teeth cleaning schedule lowers your risks for:

  • Cavities
  • Gingivitis
  • Gum disease
  • Oral infections
  • Bad breath

Gum disease is especially concerning because it can mean more than tooth loss. Studies have connected gum disease to several health problems, including:

  • Heart complications
  • Lung issues
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Low birth weight in babies
  • Preterm birth

When considering the consequences of gum disease, it only makes sense to visit your dentist every six months for checkups and teeth cleanings.
