Your oral health and overall health are interconnected. Both are crucial for a high quality of life. Through routine dental cleanings, you can avoid problems with cavities, oral infections, and dental disease that can derail your oral health and put you at risk of medical issues. Dental cleaning is essential in keeping your smile strong and healthy long-term. At the office of Douglas Hoppe DDS, we offer professional dental cleaning to our patients in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, and nearby communities.
Brushing and flossing your teeth minimizes plaque and bacteria buildup that can cause cavities and dental disease. Brushing and flossing alone, however, aren’t enough to keep your teeth clean. There are simply too many crevices in your mouth where your brush can’t reach. In these areas, plaque can accumulate and harden into tartar, which can only be removed with special dental tools. The longer plaque and tartar remain on your teeth, the greater your risk of getting cavities or developing gum disease.
Routine dental cleanings allow Dr. Douglas Hoppe and our team to eliminate all plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, along with harmful bacteria that cause gum disease. Once a year, we’ll take x-rays to check for hidden dental issues and inspect your bone health beneath the gum line, where bacteria can breed. Lastly, we will polish your teeth, leaving them sparkling clean.
If your gums have been compromised by gum disease, dental cleanings can help reverse the damage in the early stages to restore your gum health.
Regular dental cleanings are key to keeping your teeth and gums healthy long-term. Before your cleaning, Dr. Hoppe will examine your teeth for signs of decay or dental disease. By catching these problems early, we can rectify them quickly before they cause too much damage to your teeth. We recommend bi-annual dental cleanings to:
Routine cleaning can help prevent problems before they start. This can save you the time and expense of correcting dental issues later. Through regular cleaning, Dr. Hoppe can monitor the state of your gums and teeth to ensure you are enjoying optimal oral health.
When it comes to aesthetics, dental cleanings can improve your smile’s appearance by removing plaque, tartar, and surface stains that give your smile a dull, dingy appearance. You can enjoy healthier teeth and a brighter smile to help you look and feel your best.
