The Amazing Benefits of Regular Teeth Cleaning

February 21, 2019

A beautiful, healthy smile has several benefits: it boosts our self-confidence, it allows us to fully enjoy the foods that we eat, it helps us to speak properly, and it helps avoid dental issues that could be complicated and expensive. We do our best to maintain a healthy smile by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and avoiding things that can be harmful to our teeth. While all these steps are very helpful, there is another step to take to achieve a great smile – regular teeth cleanings. Dental Arts performs this treatment for patients in Rego Park.

It is recommended that you visit your dentist in Rego Park NY twice a year (every six months) for a dental cleaning and exam. There are several benefits to regular teeth cleanings. Here are four reasons why you should make time for them.

Prevent gum disease

Plaque contains acid-producing bacteria, and when it is left to remain on the tooth surfaces, the bacteria can cause damage to both the teeth and gums. Gum disease leads to swollen, bleeding gums and could eventually result in the loss of teeth if it is not treated promptly. Regular dental checkups not only clean the teeth to keep gum disease at bay, but give your dentist at Dental Arts Rego Park the chance to catch it while it is in its early stages.

Have a bright and perfect smile

Regular dental cleanings help clean up some of the damage you may unintentionally be doing to your teeth on a daily basis, such as drinking teeth-staining drinks or eating especially sticky food.

Prevent bad breath

A buildup of tartar and plaque can cause damage to the teeth and gums and can also produce bad breath. If this occurs, no amount of breath mints or even brushing can get rid of it. Only a professional cleaning will bring back your fresh breath.

Help to detect dental problems early

Dental issues do not often present clear warning signs like issues in the rest of your body do. Only by visiting your dentist in Rego Park regularly can you catch them early. Finding problems like cavities and gum disease early allows for the easier and less expensive treatment.

Make sure you’re doing all you can to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If it has been a while since your last cleaning, make an appointment for a dental cleaning in Rego Park at Dental Arts today.

Dr. Zina and her staff are amazing. I felt very informed about the procedure before hand. They even gave me tips to heal and recover as quickly and comfortably as possible. Overall, a great experience and very happy I chose this practice for my wisdom teeth removal.

It was wonderful being able to remove my teeth and get my new set on the same day. I didn’t have to go to work with no teeth. The staff was wonderful and told me what to expect every step of the way. The staff was awesome very accommodating, they made sure that I was comfortable.

Dr. Zina made me feel so comfortable that I now bring my entire family to see her. She is friendly and sweet and has a very welcoming personality. She has a very calm persona and makes you feel very comfortable. My 9 year old now looks forward to going to the dentist. Thank you Dr Gotlieb for the wonderful care you took with my family and I.

This office is wonderful- very clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. Dr. Zina Gotlieb is so nice and personable, and she spent more time counseling and answering questions than I have experienced at any other dental office. And she did not try to push any unnecessary treatments. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Zina is an asset as shes always there to great you with a smile and reminding my forgetful self about my upcoming appointments.
