The Importance of Professional Teeth Cleanings

You’ve never dealt with gum disease or cavities. You don’t seem to have any dental issues at all. While this certainly makes you lucky, you might think this also means that you can skip out on seeing the dentist. Think again!

Regular visits to Mendelson Family Dentistry in Owings Mills, MD, allows your dentists, Drs. Herbert and Harold Mendelson, to provide these long-term smile benefits:

Protect Against Cavities

Plaque is a sticky film that builds up on teeth throughout the day. If plaque isn’t removed with regular brushing, this can lead to decay. Along with brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily (both crucial to good long-term oral health) you should come into our office for professional dental cleanings. Our hygienists have special tools and techniques to get into those hard-to-reach and often overlooked spots in and around teeth where plaque can lurk.

Prevent Gum Disease

Gum disease the leading cause of tooth loss in adults today. Additionally, most people don’t even realize they have gum disease until it’s too late. However, if you visit our Owings Mills office every six months, we can check the health of your gums and detect the early signs of gum. After all, if this condition is caught early enough, it can be reversed.

Brighten Your Teeth

Everything from the coffee we drink to the foods we consume can lead to stains and discolorations. Fortunately, routine dental cleanings can remove many of these surface stains and give your teeth a freshly polished look. When you leave our office, you'll be walking out with an instantly whiter smile.
