As you may know, it’s important for you to see to your dentist regularly—even if you don’t particularly enjoy visiting dentists. However, did you know that cleaning your teeth professionally can help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to a number of issues if these conditions are untreated?

There are several different types of cleanings—and each of these types can be useful in different situations. For example, you may simply need a thorough cleaning—typically called a preventative cleaning—in order to prevent issues such as gum disease and tooth decay. Similarly, if you have gum disease in its early stages, our team will use specially designed instruments to remove plaque and tartar from your mouth. Finally, we may recommend a deep cleaning for more advanced cases of gum disease, which can help reverse the problem.

A professional dental cleaning will also help you have a brighter smile and can ultimately save you money. A cleaning will you keep your teeth healthy, prevent cavities, and help you avoid the need for root canal therapy. During your cleaning, we will be able to identify issues before they get serious—which will allow us to prevent potential problems.

If you think you need to come in for a professional dental cleaning, please don’t hesitate to contact Dentistry For Today at 502-517-0073. Dr. Robin Cropper and our team are ready to help you restore and maintain your healthy, confident smile!
