Since you need a teeth cleaning and dental exam about every six months, it might help you remember to put those appointments on the calendar at the start of each new year.
So why not now? Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to visit Dr. Chase at Friendly Smiles Center to make sure your mouth is clean and fresh and your smile is bright and kissably soft for your sweetheart!
Here are 3 reasons you’ll be glad you got a dental cleaning:
#1 – For Clean, Shiny Teeth
Your routine hygiene appointments with one of our skilled hygienists are essential to a healthy smile. We’ll remove plaque from your teeth, something you can’t do on your own with brushing and flossing alone.
Then we’ll clean and polish your teeth and make sure your mouth is nice and fresh for date night!
#2 – For Help With Dry Mouth
A dry mouth isn’t just sticky and uncomfortable, but it can also cause bad breath and dry, cracked lips.
None of that will make you feel confident about puckering up on date night!
You’ll also be vulnerable to tooth decay and cavities because your teeth won’t be shielded by bacteria-fighting saliva. If you’re experiencing symptoms of dry mouth, talk to us at your dental cleaning appointment so we can determine the cause and offer solutions to get your saliva production back to a healthy level so your mouth is moist and your smile is ready to shine for your sweetheart!
#3 – For Fresh Breath
If you’re avoiding onions, garlic, and other smelly foods, you’re brushing and flossing each day, and you’re using mouthwash and popping mints all the time, then why do you still have that bad odor in your mouth?
It could be a sign of gum disease infection.
We can help you keep it under control with scaling and root planing, which is a gentle but deep cleaning that removes the infection under and around the gumline. You may need to visit us for these sessions more frequently than your standard hygiene appointments until your gum health is restored.
We’ll make sure your gums are healthy, your mouth is clean, and your breath is kissably fresh for your Valentine!
