  1. 1. The Importance of Getting a Professional Teeth Cleaning There are a lot of reasons for taking good care of your teeth. For starters, your smile is one of the first things people will notice – especially employers. Making a great first impression with healthy, bright teeth and fresh breath do a lot to boost your confidence. But more than that, there are health benefits to keeping a healthy mouth. Understanding the different problems that can arise from not brushing and flossing daily will help scare you straight. No matter how great you think you have done brushing your teeth, there are always bacteria in your mouth. Let a dentist or professional assist with your care regimen. Make sure to schedule a yearly appointment with your dentist, schedule a cleaning and exam during this visit. This will help you identify problem areas and find solutions before it starts. What Bacteria Am I Facing? Each mouth is a little different as any Draper dentist can attest to. You are working against the different chemical makeup unique to you. This will determine what type of toothbrush you need, what toothpaste you should use, and what bacteria is growing in your mouth. Understanding the bacteria will help you fight against it, for example, by avoiding certain foods.  Plaque: produces an acid, which erodes your teeth and gums unless removed.  Tartar: forms when plaque is not removed, it calcifies and attracts more harmful sources of bacteria.  Gingivitis: an actual disease caused by bacteria in their destructive state. Results in inflammation of the gums and possible infection. One key indicator of gingivitis is blood on your toothbrush or in the rinse during your brushing routine.  Periodontal Disease: also commonly referred to as Periodontitis. This infection destroys your teeth by affecting the bone, which holds the roots for all of your teeth. Left untreated, you will likely lose your teeth and have permanent damage to your jawbone. Your dentist can help you assess where you are with any of those bacteria. It is better to find out before, treat soon, and eliminate these issues. Finding the pockets and bleeding areas are not always easy, because they are not always on the surface. A yearly check will examine your mouth; including your teeth, roots, bones, and nerves. You will have a better understanding of the health of your mouth if you visit your dentist. Managing Your Smile As with any part of your body, the health is directly impacted by your diet.

It is important to keep your teeth strong and healthy and a lot of that comes from taking in less sugar. Next, make sure to keep up with a good routine at home. Replace your soft bristle toothbrush every 2-3 months. This will ensure that you are cleaning evenly and well. You also should make sure to keep up with flossing, as many problems are caused from the crevices between your teeth. Flossing will manage bacteria, keep out food particles, and allow you to keep fresh breath. Make sure to consult with your dentist about any other care that should be taken to keep your smile in the best shape possible. Many different things can take place in your mouth, but make sure you have control. Keep a smile that is bright and clean for years to come.
