Dental Cleaning: The Facts

Posted .

Have you ever been told that you should visit a dentist once every six months? Do you ever struggle to make these appointments because of time constraints or because they’re inconvenient? While we understand that your time is valuable, please know that these appointments are actually vital to the health of your teeth.

One part of these important visits is cleaning your teeth is inspecting your teeth and gums. Our team should be able to recognize issues that you may have a hard time recognizing from home. Of course, we’ll be able to address many of these issues more effectively if we identify them early. And even if you don’t need additional treatments, our team will clean your smile more effectively than you can at home.

If you visit our dentist, our team will be able to recognize issues such as oral cancer, which is far easier to treat if it’s caught early. Similarly, we can help you recognize signs of gum disease and tooth decay, and may be able to help you reverse it. This is extremely important because tooth decay lead to heart disease and respiratory problems.

If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment with us, or learning more about bi-annual cleanings, please don’t hesitate to give Lewis Family Dentistry a call at 910.488.0518. Dr. Kenneth Lewis and our team look forward to hearing from you soon!
