At the Dental Centre, we know that dentistry can be a stressful experience. We try to make you feel comfortable throughout your entire treatment and are experienced in providing dental care for the whole family. Even if you don’t particularly look forward to your dental appointment, or you find it a source of anxiety, there are many reasons you shouldn’t postpone your dental cleaning. Here are four reasons you should visit your dentist.

  • Regular visits prevent cavities. Regular brushing does a lot to reduce plaque buildup, but normal brushing may miss problem areas around the back molars and hard to reach areas. When plaque sits on your tooth for an extended amount of time, it breaks down the tooth enamel and creates a cavity, resulting in the need for more dental treatment.
  • Routine cleanings help remove stains on your teeth. If you’re a regular coffee and tea drinker, your teeth will naturally start to turn yellow over time, and whitening toothpaste only removes so much. Your dentist can polish the stains away and recommend a whitening protocol to keep the stains from coming back.
  • Gum disease and tooth loss are a major risk when plaque builds up on your teeth. As the buildup becomes more severe, the plaque can move beneath the gumline and damage to your jawbone. This often results in loose or missing teeth.
  • The health of your mouth is often an indicator of other underlying medical conditions. Your dentist knows the signs to look for and may make recommendations before the medical conditions become more severe.
