Chicago Gum Disease - Cleanings

Bad Breath?
Loose Teeth?

Six ways a dental cleaning can benefit you!

Some Great Reasons For Having Your Teeth Cleaned!

  • Prevent Cavities!

  • The leading cause of tooth decay is the whitish film that builds up on your teeth which is called dental plaque biofilm. This biofilm is loaded with bacteria which produce acid and eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left for a prolonged period can form cavities. This dental plaque biofilm can be removed by brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings.

  • Stop tooth loss!

  • When this dental plaque biofilm builds up it can lead to gum disease which is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. The bacteria in normal plaque biofilm, is quite different from the biofilm formed in decaying teeth and under the gums in gum disease. As gum disease advances, this plaque biofilm gets more invasive and moves further down the tooth, where it can destroy the supporting gums and bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Regular dental cleanings combined with good oral hygiene habits can be greatly reduce the chance of this happening to you.

  • Brighten your smile!

  • Drinking tea, red wine, coffee or using tobacco can stain your teeth. A dental cleaning, with our Prophy Jet air polisher, can remove these built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. This results in you having a whiter, brighter smile!

  • Freshen your breath!

  • Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. The build up of plaque and tartar (calcified plaque) can be a source of odors in your mouth. Even if you floss and brush regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free. During your cleaning we will remove the plaque and tartar above the gum line. If you have tartar below the gum line it is necessary to do a deep cleaning which is a separate gum procedure.

  • Boost your overall health

  • Studies have shown a connection between your oral and overall health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for some diseases, like stroke and heart disease. Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening such as oral cancers or sleep apnea, can be detected in their early stages during our routine oral exam. You can not perform your best if you do not feel your best. A toothache or painful gums can slow you down both mentally and physically.

  • Save money

  • If you utilize your benefits now, you may be able to save money in the long run by helping to protect your oral health and potentially avoiding more costly and extensive procedures. You get the most value from your dental benefits if you use them.
