Centerville dentist advises patients that good oral care is the key to a healthy smile

Do your teeth sparkle when you smile? Is your mouth healthy and free of harmful bacteria? Most people understand that brushing and flossing are critical to keeping the teeth and mouth clean; however, regular dental visits are just as important.
Dr. Daniel Cobb of Alex Bell Dental recommends that families in Centerville, OH, visit his office twice a year for a regular cleaning and checkup. During this appointment, the patient will go through a few easy steps, including x-rays, teeth cleaning, dental examination, and oral cancer screening.
While clean teeth start at home with proper brushing and flossing, it’s important to note that even with brushing, deposits of plaque build on a person’s teeth. Plaque is caused by foods that are rich in sugar such as soda, juice, and candy. If the plaque is not removed, it can form dental tartar, which contributes to most dental problems. The best way to completely remove the pockets of plaque is to have your teeth professionally cleaned by a dental hygienist.
In addition to keeping your teeth clean and healthy, regular professional cleanings help to treat the early stages of gum disease. Dr. Cobb and his team use dental instruments to remove tartar from below the gum line. That tartar simply can’t be reached using a toothbrush or floss at home. However, if left untreated, the tartar can grow and cause gum disease, which can cause tooth loss or allow oral bacteria to enter the bloodstream.
In addition to having your teeth polished, and having plaque and tartar removed from your mouth, there are other benefits to maintaining a regular cleaning schedule with your dentist.

Good oral care from dentist in Centerville
  • The hygienist and dentist can identify and treat potential problems before they become bigger issues.

  • Because dental health can be an indication of overall health, the dental checkup can provide valuable insight into your overall wellness.

Keeping these regular appointments is a big step in preventing cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss, which prevents costly dental treatments in the future. Don’t put off your oral health. Call Alex Bell Dental today to schedule an appointment.
