6. Clean your teeth

Dentists are professionally trained to help you clean all those hard to reach areas in your mouth. When plaque builds up it causes a lot of inflammations to your gums and eventually hardens to become calculus where you won’t be able to clean it yourself. If left untreated, this can quickly lead to cavities.

When we have a bad oral hygiene we tend to accumulates more bacteria loads in our mouth compare to normal. A dental cleaning every 4-6 months helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy and could possibly reduce your risk of any major health issues.

4. To use your dental benefits plan.

Dental plans usually pay for all or most of the cost of dental cleanings and check-ups. Take advantage of this and save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding costly dental procedures that can result from poor oral hygiene. After all, you’ve paid for it.

3. Prevent bad breath

Studies have shown that majority of the time, bad breath is cause by dental problem. Good oral hygiene is essential in preventing bad breath so make sure you do drop by to get it fix.


2. No big surprises

It’s always better to detect any early onset problem before it becomes worse as a rule of thumb “The bigger the problem the costlier it gets.” So make sure you do regular check up to prevent big surprises!


1. Oral cancer screening

Every dental check-up includes a screening for oral cancer. Oral cancer is often not diagnosed until it becomes life threatening. Recognizing oral cancer in its early stages is key to treating it successfully, and while you may not notice oral abnormalities, your dentist will.
