Six Reasons to Get Your Teeth Cleaned Professionally

It's probably safe to say that nobody in Utah likes going to the dentist. The sight of people in fear, the sound of the dentist's drill screaming, even the smell of a medical facility can make some people's stomachs turn. What about teeth cleaning? Those studying dental assisting in college know the benefits can be astronomical. Here are the top 6 reasons to have your teeth cleaned by a professional dentist or dental assistant in Utah.

1

Keep Your Own Teeth

Keep Your Own Teeth

Adult teeth don't grow back, so you want to keep the ones you've got. Regular teeth cleaning can help keep your pearly whites intact. Your own teeth are easier to keep clean and function better than fake teeth. Real teeth are stronger and require less maintenance than man made chompers.

2

Take Advantage of Dental Insurance

If you're paying for dental insurance, you might as well use it...right? Most dental insurance plans pay for regular teeth cleanings and check-ups. By taking advantage of what you're already paying for, you can eliminate cost and pain for future dental work. Staying on top of dental hygiene is the key to long-term dental health.

Prevent Oral Cancer

Prevent Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. Brushing twice a day, flossing and having regular professional cleaning can prevent gum disease. If gum disease does develop though and it's caught early, it can be reversed before sacrificing teeth.
