Teeth cleaning is very important not just for the health of your mouth, but for the rest of your body as well. Diseases like heart disease, dementia, diabetes and more can be caused or greatly worsened by having poor dental health and not heeding the advice given to you by D. Micklin during your last visit to our Glendale office. By regularly cleaning your teeth and having them cleaned further at our office in Glendale, you are helping keep your whole body healthy. Teeth cleanings help prevent disease and tooth loss while keeping you healthy and smiling brightly.
Your immune system is incredible at fighting off the “bad guys” in your body that try to cause you harm. You might have heard a dentist mention gum disease before and how detrimental to your health it can be, that is because gum disease is your immune system attacking your gums. Gums swell and bleed in response to the build-up of tartar and the bacteria as well as toxins that accompany it, triggering a chronic inflammatory response that manifests in swollen, bleeding gums. Gum disease can also progress, causing major damage to your bones and the tissues or your mouth. Due to the inceasant combat with your gum, your immune system will likely begin to falter after some time, leaving you much more susceptible to other diseases and illnesses. Regular teeth cleaning is the best way to prevent the terrible repercussions of poor dental care.
Your Cherry Creek dental hygienist will use special tools to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, preventing gum disease and keeping harmful bacteria from further irritating your gums and causing gum disease. You can also ask Dr. Micklin at his Glendale office what classification or level your gum disease has progressed to, so you can know what to expect. Regular flossing and brushing can reverse any advanced gum disease that may be occurring. Make sure afterward you are brushing at least twice a day and flossing when you can. Regular cleans from your dentist in Cherry Creek are recommended twice a year or more depending on the health of your mouth.
