Is your smile ready for the fun, social days of summer? Are you traveling somewhere to explore your world a little more? At Smiles Dental in Lacey, Washington, our dentist, Dr. Jeanine Nordeen and our team are excited to help you get your smile summer and travel ready with a professional dental cleaning.
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, patients who receive twice yearly professional dental cleanings have improved oral health. If you have an oral health condition like periodontal (gum) disease, you may need to come in more often. Our dental cleanings and exams are the perfect complement to your daily at-home care–brushing, and flossing–to protect your pearly whites.
The AGD also says that regular dental cleanings may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. Life-threatening medical conditions can often be detected in their early stages during an oral dental exam. Regular dental checkups and cleanings can also help prevent oral cancer, prevent gum disease, help you keep your teeth, and prevent bad breath. Another benefit to regular professional cleanings is that they can detect and fix problems early, when they are most easily, economically and least invasively treated.
During your checkup, our Smiles Dental team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and possibly take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, as well as polish your teeth and floss them. So if you are wanting a confident smile for the activities of summer, schedule your next dental cleaning with our Smiles Dental team in Lacey, Washington, at 360.339.7499 today!
