5 Reasons to Get a Dental Cleaning Every Six Months


Posted on 5/20/2016 by Lauren Pollard
An elderly woman about to receive a dental examination.Most dentists recommend that you visit their offices for a cleaning every six months. Why are these appointments so important? Are they just a way for your dentist to get more money, or are they really needed?

There are a variety of reasons that you should be getting regular dental cleanings, and by identifying a few of them, you may be compelled to make your next dental appointment.

Improve Your Dental Health


Regular dental cleanings are important for your overall dental health. When given the chance to regularly inspect your mouth, your dentist can keep an eye on changes that might be impacting your oral health. If problems are found, they can be corrected before they have the chance to get worse.

Prevent Bad Breath


When it comes to preventing bad breath, good oral hygiene is your first line of defense. Plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth will increase the likelihood that you develop bad breath, so periodic cleanings can eliminate these bad breath-causing culprits.

Improve Your Smile


If you want a whiter and brighter smile, regular cleanings can do the trick. These appointments will help to eliminate tooth discolorations that result from coffee, tobacco, and other staining substances. Consistent cleanings can keep your smile looking attractive.

Take Advantage of Your Dental Benefits


Most dental insurance plans will pay for dental cleanings every six months, so if you aren't getting regular cleanings, you likely aren't fully taking advantage of your plan. If you are paying for dental insurance, you might as well be using it.

Prevent Oral Cancer


Visiting your dentist frequently will give him the chance to monitor your mouth for signs of oral cancer. An early diagnosis could potentially save your life.
