It Prevents Oral Cancer. You may or may not realize that you’re screened for oral cancer during your regular dental cleanings. Oral cancer is highly curable with early diagnosis.
It Helps Fight Gum Disease. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. It can be treated and reversed if diagnosed early, but regular cleanings and check ups, and daily brushing and flossing, are key weapons in winning the battle against gum disease.
It’s About More Than Your Mouth. Studies have linked gum disease to heart attacks and strokes? Getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months could reduce your risk of serious health problems!
You Want to Preserve Your Smile. As mentioned, gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. To keep your pearly whites intact, stick with your cleaning schedule and learn the proper way to care for your teeth and Invisalign.
It Helps to Detect Dental Problems Early. We’ve already touched upon early detection of gum disease and oral cancer, but don’t overlook more basic dental problems such as cavities and broken fillings. Without routine cleanings these problems could lead to root canals, gum surgery and/or tooth extraction.
It Gives You Guidance to Maintaining Excellent Oral Health. Check ups are a great way to keep your oral health on the right path, and to ask questions like: what’s the best electric toothbrush to buy, or what is current research saying about how to better care for your teeth.
You chose Invisalign because it is more convenient than traditional braces, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to continue with regular teeth care. While Invisalign is easy, it also requires you to pay more attention to what you eat and to spend extra time cleaning your aligners.
