What are the benefits of dental cleaning?

When you visit Libertyville Dental Associates for routine teeth cleaning, you can expect a thorough and professional experience. Not only will your teeth feel fresh and clean, but regular dental cleanings also offer many long-term benefits.

  • Prevents gum disease (periodontal disease). Gum disease may result in serious oral health problems if left untreated. Our dental hygienist and team will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums during a dental cleaning. This helps prevent gum disease by eliminating the bacteria that can cause inflammation and infection.
  • Detects oral health issues early on. During your dental cleaning, our dentist will also thoroughly examine your mouth to check for any indications of tooth decay, periodontal disease, infection, or other oral health issues. Catching these problems early on can save you from more extensive and costly treatments like extractions and dental implants down the road.
  • Improves overall health and wellness. Did you know your oral health is closely linked to your overall health? This is because the bacteria in your mouth can enter your bloodstream and affect other body parts. Regular dental cleanings can decrease your risk of developing serious medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. 
  • Brightens your smile. Not only do dental cleanings improve your oral health, but they also give you a brighter and whiter smile. By removing the surface stains and polishing the teeth, you will leave our dental office with a noticeable difference in the overall look of your teeth. Coffee Stains, red wine, and many foods can cause staining.  With our air polishing techniques, you will notice a difference immediately in the brightness of your smile.
  • Saves you money. Some people may try to skip their routine dental cleanings to save money. However, the truth is that regular cleanings can save you money in the long run. By preventing serious oral health issues and catching problems early on, you’ll avoid costly procedures and treatments.
