Don’t forget to visit your dentist in Augusta, GA, every six months if you want a healthy mouth!professional cleanings

Have you been wondering why you have to come in every six months to visit our family dentist, Dr. Alan Myers? Are you curious to know what these exams and cleanings actually do for your oral health? Well then you’ve come to the right place. Here are the various benefits you’ll receive with professional dental cleanings.

Prevent Cavities (or Catch Them Early)

I think we can all agree that no one wants cavities and luckily this is a problem that can ultimately be prevented with proper at-home care and by coming in every six months for professional dental cleanings. Even if you have the best toothbrush or you floss daily you still need to visit our Augusta office every six months because plaque and tartar buildup can still occur even if you are meticulous. These cleanings ensure that your teeth stay as healthy and cavity-free as possible or that the issue is caught early enough when it’s easier to treat.

Reverse Gingivitis

Did you know that if gum disease is detected during its earliest stages that it can actually be reversed? When you come in we can pinpoint the telltale signs of gum disease that perhaps you missed. Of course, if you notice that your gums are bleeding when you brush or floss, or if gums are swollen and tender, then you should make an appointment with us right away.

Remove Coffee Stains

Teeth whitening isn’t the only way to say goodbye to dental stains. Did you know that a lot of those unpleasant stains caused by coffee, black tea, red wine and dark foods can also be buffed away with professional dental cleanings? Don’t you just love having a brighter, polished smile after leaving our office? Go ahead; run your tongue along those beautifully smooth teeth (we won’t judge!).

Save Time and Money

Preventive dentistry is the best way to keep dental problems from happening altogether. By coming in twice a year we can detect these problems during their earliest phases, when they won’t cause serious and irreparable damage and they require less invasive measures to treat them.

Check for Early Signs of Oral Cancer

Did you know that besides cleaning your teeth and gums we also look for warning signs or oral cancer? This fast, painless and non-invasive screening helps us detect oral cancer early on to make sure you get treated as soon as possible and to improve your prognosis. This is truly the most effective screening tool for identifying oral cancer.

Is it time to schedule your routine cleaning already? If so, then it’s time to pick up the phone and call Myers Family Dental in Augusta, GA. We would be happy to schedule appointments for the whole family.
