Routine Teeth Cleaning is Something to Smile About

Dental Hygiene

You run your tongue across the top row of your front teeth and then swirl around to the bottom as you skip out of the dentist’s office after a routine teeth cleaning—that wasn’t so bad after all, was it? Now your teeth feel sparkling clean and you feel confident in your smile. Recent research suggests that you now have more to smile about when you take good care of your teeth. Proper dental care, including professional teeth cleaning performed by a dental hygienist and diligent at-home efforts, is closely linked to your overall disease risk, not just diseases of the mouth. Skipping a visit to your dentist in Manassas or foregoing brushing your teeth every evening isn’t just a simple oversight, it’s a strike against your total wellness.

Research studies have found that brain and heart health are directly correlated to oral health. A large study recently found that people who went to a dental hygienist for a professional teeth cleaning at least twice a year were 24 percent less likely to have a heart attack than those who missed a teeth cleaning each year. Even more astounding was the correlation between brain health and dental care—the same study found that having that bi-annual dental exam and teeth cleaning can lower your risk of stroke by as much as 13 percent.

Previous studies discovered that missing routine appointments with a dental hygienist for a teeth cleaning—as well as skipping basic at-home dental care—can increase the risk of heart disease by as much as 70 percent. Despite these research findings, scientists still are uncertain of exactly why and how there is such a significant link between dental health and risk of disease, but the most popular hypothesis is that it’s inflammation, which is a primary contributor to the development of disease. Tooth decay and gum disease significantly raise the level of inflammation in the body.

The lowest risks of disease are associated with practicing proper dental care habits—brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and rinsing with a mouthwash. A professional teeth cleaning performed by a dental hygienist every six months will remove plaque build-up and bacteria that a toothbrush and floss simply cannot reach.

Regular teeth cleaning, both at home and by a dental hygienist, will eliminate the oral bacteria that can contribute to chronic infection and inflammation, which can ultimately spread to the rest of the body. Ask your dentist in Manassas to help you determine the appropriate frequency for your teeth cleaning appointments.
