Between kids activities, work, and the tasks of everyday life, it is easy to forget to come in for regular dental cleanings. Even if you were great about coming in every six months as a kid, adult dental care is still just as vital. There are many reasons to visit our Katy dental office regularly.
All the things we drink and eat can have an effect on the color of our teeth. Coffee, wine, tobacco, and many foods can lead to staining and discoloration. Coming in for regular cleanings as an adult can help to counteract this discoloration. Getting your teeth professionally cleaned regularly helps polish away discoloration, staining, and buildup on the tooth for a brighter, whiter smile.
As we age, we become more at risk for tooth loss. One of the biggest factors in tooth loss is plaque buildup. When plaque and tartar build up, they can weaken the root of the tooth over long periods of time, putting you at risk for tooth loss. Getting regular professional cleanings as well as maintaining a good at home routine are essential in keeping your adult teeth as you age.
Many dental plans offer low or no copayments for dental cleanings and oral exams. If this is the case for your insurance, you can save money in the long run by getting regular dental cleanings. Maintaining your oral health can help prevent more serious dental problems down the road, which may or may not be covered by insurance. Save yourself time and money in the future and come in for a professional cleaning today.
If it has been more than six months since your last professional cleaning and oral exam, schedule an appointment with us today. We hope to see your smile in our office soon.
