You’ve been hearing it for years – “make sure to visit Dr. Meghna Dassani twice a year for your regular cleanings.” Just in case you’ve ever wondered why regular dental cleanings are so important, we at Dassani Dentistry would like to take this opportunity to let Houston residents 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.
If you have any questions or find that you are suddenly inspired to visit Dr. Meghna Dassani for a cleaning, feel free to give us a call!
Why You Should Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned
Unfortunately, some folks in Houston believe that visiting the dentist is unnecessary if you brush and floss regularly. That just isn’t the case. In addition to keeping your teeth clean and healthy, regular visits to our expert hygienists at Dassani Dentistry 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 get your teeth cleaned
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 Houston resident to remove on their own, but dental cleanings can give you tartar-free teeth!
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. When plaque and tartar build up 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 Dr. Meghna Dassani a chance to treat problems before they become serious.
Drinking tea, coffee, and using tobacco are just a few habits that can stain your teeth. However, our hygienists at Dassani Dentistry can remove many of these stains during the course of a simple cleaning. On top of that, every cleaning ends with a polishing that will leave you with a whiter, healthier smile.
If you have dental insurance, but don’t visit Dr. Meghna Dassani 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. Give Dassani Dentistry a call if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
