Your dentist, Dr. Tom G. Schleicher, strongly encourages attendance to your dental cleaning appointments. In fact, it’s very important to receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months. To help you understand why this is encouraged, our dental team is happy to give you the reasons why dental cleanings and exams are necessary.

-Dental cleanings clean your teeth and gums by removing plaque and tartar from the smile. This is very important if you want to keep cavities and periodontal disease at bay.

-Dental cleanings can clean the hard-to-reach places of your smile that your toothbrush and floss can’t always clean.

-Dental cleanings help you prevent dental issues, especially enamel erosion, because they strengthen your enamel with a fluoride treatment. The enamel should be able to fight bacteria regularly.

-Dental cleanings can help you have a whiter smile because the polishing treatment can remove minor surface stains from your tooth enamel.

-Dental exams ensure that you have a strong, healthy, and functional smile.

-Dental exams allow your dentist to detect as well as treat any dental issues you have immediately.
