If you thought your dental cleaning was just about preventing cavities, stopping tooth loss, and brightening the smile, you’re incorrect. Although these benefits are very important and necessary, there is more to your appointment. In fact, there are additional benefits that you have probably never even thought of. Our dentist, Dr. Michael Tobola, is happy to tell you what those are.

The first benefit is that the cleaning can freshen your breath This is because it removes the bacteria from your teeth, gums, and tongue that create an odor. Even if you brush and floss regularly, your dental cleaning can help you completely clean your mouth and promote top-notch breath. It can even eliminate the first stage of gum disease, which involves having bad breath as a symptom.

The second benefit is that the cleaning can boost your overall health. This is because your oral health is linked to your overall health, and if you have a strong and healthy smile, there is a good chance your body can stay in tip-top shape as well.

The third benefit is that the cleaning can save you money. This is because it helps you prevent dental issues that could be costly to treat, like cavities, broken teeth, and infected gums.
