Professional Teeth Cleaning in Issaquah, WA
Regular cleanings contribute to better overall oral health. Our dental hygienists keep your teeth white and cavity-free and remove plaque, tartar, and food particles before they can start to cause decay. Teeth cleanings are healthy for your gums as well. Plaque buildup can lead to gum disease if not treated, the first signs of which are swelling and then bleeding when brushing. Our dentist can prevent future problems by addressing early signs of tooth decay and gingivitis.
Preventative care is the most effective way to save in the long run. Dental cleanings and daily personal care prevent future problems that can be costly to fix. Cleanings also help prevent other health problems, including heart attack and stroke, as research has shown oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream and increase one’s risk. Good oral health may also reduce your chances of developing diabetes, lung infections, Alzheimer’s, kidney problems, and fertility issues.
In the near term, cleanings freshen up your breath, boost your confidence, and make a better impression on others.
