teeth cleaning in Winter Springs FLYou’ve been hearing it for years – “make sure to visit Collins Dental twice a year for your regular cleanings.” Just in case you’ve ever wondered why regular dental cleanings are so important, we’d like to take this opportunity to let you in on some information you don’t often hear. Let this article serve as your personal guide to the benefits of getting your teeth cleaned.

Why You Should Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned

Unfortunately, some folks believe that visiting the dentist is unnecessary as long as you brush and floss regularly. That just isn’t the case. In addition to keeping your teeth clean and healthy, regular visits to our hygienists ensure that we can have a good look at your pearly whites and make sure nothing is wrong. If you don’t come in for cleanings, you’ll only need more expensive work later in life.

Here are a few reasons to get your teeth cleaned:

  • Tartar – We’ve all heard of plaque, but what about tartar? And no, not like the sauce. Tartar is the grown-up version of plaque. In other words, plaque becomes harder as it builds up and eventually turns into tartar. It is difficult for the average person to remove on their own, but dental cleanings can give you tartar-free teeth!
  • Gum Disease – Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. When plaque and tartar buildup on teeth, they begin irritating gums and cause an infection that actually separates gums from teeth. Left unchecked, gum disease can be a serious, damaging, and painful condition. However, regular cleanings help keep gum disease at bay and give your Winter Springs dentists a chance to treat problems before they become serious.
  • Bright SmilesDrinking tea, coffee, and using tobacco are just a few habits that can stain your teeth. However, our hygienists at Collins Dental can remove many of these stains during a simple cleaning. On top of that, every cleaning ends with a polishing that will leave you with a whiter, healthier smile.
  • Dental BenefitsIf you have dental insurance, but don’t visit your Winter Springs dentists for your regular cleanings, you are missing out on your benefits! Almost all dental insurance providers allow for two cleanings per year, free of charge. There’s no reason to let your insurance go to waste.

Now you know why it’s so important to have your teeth cleaned. If you have any questions or find that you are suddenly inspired to visit us for a cleaning, feel free to give us a call!
