Dental Cleaning – Why You Need One

Proper dental hygiene is important for your overall health.

You know you want to stay healthy and prevent the growth of negative pathogens, bugs and microorganisms; that’s a mouthful, but it doesn’t have to be.

Just as cleaning your hands is a vital part of everyday life, so is cleaning your mouth. Germs get on your hands through the simplicity of touching a doorknob and they can transfer to that apple you are about to eat. If you did not cleanse your hands before biting into your snack, boom, you are biting into more than what you anticipated. Bacteria has now entered your mouth.

So What? When bacteria makes its way into your mouth, it seeps into your gums and teeth.

What can you do about it? Brushing and flossing help keep those dirty little bugs away but if you are complacent with the process or avoid it altogether, then your oral hygiene suffers. Poor oral hygiene can result in cavities formed by a buildup of bacteria, plaque and tartar.

This is where we come in. At Franklin Dental Centre, our dental cleanings rid you of embarrassing plaque and tartar that have made a home in your mouth. We scrape away the evil growth plaguing your mouth and polish your teeth leaving you with a beautiful, clean, smile.

Our dental cleaning helps save you from a treacherous dental future. By checking for signs of gingivitis, the most common form of periodontal disease, and inflammation of your gums, we can help prevent more serious dental issues from occurring.

Gingivitis can lead to more significant forms of periodontal disease, where your gums could start to deteriorate to the point of possible tooth loss.

Let us take the steps to help you avoid this disaster by professionally flossing, brushing and rinsing your mouth with a non-alcoholic mouthwash. Our professional tools will sneak into spaces where your home toothbrush just cannot get to.

How do you avoid dental issues?

Brush, Brush, Brush and of course come to Franklin Dental for a regular cleaning every 6 months to a year. It all starts with good dental hygiene to protect your teeth and gums from harm.

If you have neglected to practice good dental hygiene and are now dealing with the negative outcome, you can trust Franklin Dental to get you back on track.

We can start with one of our dental cleanings then address further issues. If your problem goes beyond simple treatments we can assist you with one of our many other dental services such as periodontal treatment and sealants.

Dental cleanings are crucial to a healthy mouth and often point us to the discovery of underlying issues. We want you to keep the teeth you have and can help make your smile healthy and bright. Avoiding the dentist may contribute to more in-depth dental procedures than you expect. Restorative dentistry and implants are time-consuming and costly.

So make appointments with Franklin Dental a part of your dental hygiene routine.

Clear away that dental storm brewing in your mouth and let the sun shine in on your beautiful sparkling smile.
