Five Reasons Not To Skip Your Boise Dental Cleanings

Five Reasons Not To Skip Your Boise Dental Cleanings

At Summit Dental Group, we know our patients would rather be doing other things than sitting in their dentist’s chair. However, getting your teeth cleaned can prevent many serious and unpleasant problems. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following five reasons not to skip your Boise dental cleaning appointments.

It’s Not All About Your Teeth

When you visit Summit Dental for a cleaning, your hygienist and Boise dentist will not only examine your teeth and gums, but your tongue, face, and lower jaw as well. The reason we do this is to look for any signs of cancer or disease that can show up during an oral exam.

Cardiovascular Health

Gum disease and cardiovascular health are directly linked. While we’re not entirely sure how we do know that gum disease can cause inflammation throughout your body, which can contribute to cardiovascular disease. That’s why it’s important to get regular Boise dental cleaning to prevent gum disease and keep your heart  healthy.

Nutritional Deficiencies

Most people try to maintain a healthy, nutritious diet. However, you may be missing the mark and putting yourself at risk for unnecessary health conditions. During a Boise dental cleaning, your hygienist and dentist will look for signs that you may be lacking any particular vitamins or nutrients.

Prevention Is Easier Than Treatment

No one likes having a tooth pulled, cavity filled, or root canal done. Maintaining regular Boise dental cleanings is the best way to prevent these kinds of treatments down the road. In addition to cleaning your teeth, we will educate you on the best flossing and brushing techniques while answering any questions you may have about your oral care.

Your Smile Is Important

Keeping your smile bright helps you to look and feel your best. Regular Boise dental cleanings will keep your teeth free of stains and tartar buildup. To compliment your cleaning, we will also polish your teeth to make them shiny and beautiful. The best part? A clean, bright smile can provide you with a more youthful appearance.
