Why is dental hygiene so important?
Lack of dental hygiene can cause serious health problems that start with your teeth and gums. It is estimated that as many as 80% of adults in the U.S. have periodontal disease, and the health issues do not stop there. It may be hard to believe, but the damage from a “dirty mouth” can spread far past the limits of your mouth. Here are just a few of the consequences of poor dental health:
- Heart attack
- Aggravated diabetes and kidney disease
- Premature birth
Although less devastating, other uncomfortable effects like bad breath and stained teeth may affect your self-esteem, social life and career, lowering the quality of your life.
Keeping up with daily oral hygiene by brushing and flossing at home is very important. However, doing this does not protect your teeth from developing dental plaque or tartar, a hard build-up that can be a serious threat to your oral health and overall wellness. That’s why receiving regular dental hygiene treatments is important to ensure that your teeth and gums are maintained in their optimal condition. A healthy smile is not just a matter of aesthetics, but a serious prerequisite of a wholesome life.
Your Dental Hygiene and Cleaning Appointment
The actual dental cleaning procedure is gentle and painless. Your teeth will be treated with special equipment that loosens and removes any bacterial plaque, tartar or stains. If necessary, after the cleaning procedure your teeth might be treated with special medications. Usually standard cleaning will take 1 hour and will leave you with a pleasant feeling of freshness. You might also notice that your teeth look whiter.
The professional dental cleaning is indispensable because it reduces the amount of harmful bacteria that not only cause bad breath but could also infiltrate your blood flow threatening your overall health, if left untreated.
Dental Hygiene Treatment Costs in Newport Beach
The cost of dental hygiene treatments varies depending on the extent of the required work and is often fully or partially covered by dental insurance. A standard teeth cleaning is the least expensive treatment option that is suitable for well-maintained teeth and is considered preventative care. Deep cleaning necessary to remove substantial buildup is more expensive and requires several visits to complete.
