3 Reasons to Schedule Your Spring Dental Cleaning

Spring will be here soon. If you are ready for a round of spring cleaning, then we have a recommendation.

Schedule a spring dental cleaning at Relax Dental. Here are three reasons you should make an appointment by calling (336) 841-0000 to visit our High Point, NC office or (336) 226-4714 for our Burlington location.

1. Fight Cavities

You know how well you brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis. You also know that you probably don’t do those things perfectly every time. A professional cleaning can remove plaque and tartar buildup and reduce your risk of cavities.

2. Protect Your Gums

Removing plaque and tartar isn’t just good for your teeth. That buildup can contribute to gum disease. Taking it away is necessary for your oral health.

3. Identify Problems Early

If you do have tooth decay or a periodontal infection, you want to know as soon as you can. That makes your treatment easier, less invasive, and more effective.

Don’t Stop There

Your professional cleaning is just the start of what we can do for you at our practice.

Regular checkups should be as much a part of your oral care routine as your daily brushing and flossing. Checkups complement your home hygiene routine to keep your mouth as healthy as it can be.

This is important for anyone, but it is something we want to stress for people who count on us for family dentistry. When dental visits are a habit, it helps your kids carry that into adulthood. This can prevent feelings of dental anxiety as they get older. It also makes it much more likely that small things — e.g. tooth decay and periodontal infections — don’t lead to long-term problems.

While you are here, you can take advantage of other preventive services as well:

  • Dental Sealants – This is like armor for your smile. Sealants are a coating that covers teeth. They create a barrier between cavity-causing bacteria and the enamel of your teeth. 
  • Fluoride Treatments – Tooth decay is the result of a process called demineralization. Fluoride is a mineral that can be used to repair your teeth. This also strengthens them, so your teeth are more resistant to decay in the future.
  • Athletic Mouthguards – Anyone who plays high-impact sports should be wearing a mouthguard every time they practice or compete. This is true whether you are playing recreational sports or in a competitive league.
