Brushing our teeth: recommended to happen at least 3 times a day from the average dentist, but it usually gets cut down to 2. Some people get lazy and brush once or once in awhile. It may seem like it is not that big of a deal, but skipping out on too many brushes or cleanses of the teeth and mouth can lead to a sure-fire trip to the dentists office.
There also the danger of brushing poorly. You may be “brushing” your teeth 3 times a day, but if completed in a poor or improper manner, the teeth really aren’t getting the treatment they need; and these delusions can be dangerous because you may be aggravating a certain dental problem without even knowing it.
So now you may be asking: so what? What are the reasons for brushing and flossing so continually – what do I have to lose? From a dental perspective: a lot.
Regular teeth cleanings are known to make a brighter smile – which is universally agreed upon that a brighter smile makes for a more attractive person; not being materialistic, just realistic. And who doesn’t want to look better? Regular cleanings can also assist with early detection of dental problems. By constantly brushing and taking care of teeth, one can tell if a cavity may be forming early on, or if there is an issue with the gums. Noticing these problems before they become “problems” is the difference between a lot of money and time; something we are all trying to save extra of.
Regular teeth cleanings also interrupt potential bone and gum diseases from further manifesting. This falls under that same bonus as before, but we like to make a note of it because bone/teeth and gum diseases are a little more serious – so it is important to know that these serious intrusions can also be prevented by daily brushing and flossing – as well as a regular dental cleaning.
It is not just what you do at home – a regular dental cleaning is also very important. It is important to have a professional Tijuana Dentist look at your teeth from an objective standpoint – it will further verify what type of shape your teeth are in.
Regular dental cleanings can be very preventative for oral cancers too, and they also can track down issues for bad breath. Brushing and flossing everyday helps, but a serious case of bad breath can be tracked down and taken down by a dentist in a simple and professional manner.
But most importantly – regular dental checkups help us to devise a plan. It is so vital to have a plan for our teeth and the dentist is the one to set it up. We may think we know our teeth better than anyone else; but that is not true: the dentist knows them better.
