Are you prepared for the candy season? If so, you are not alone. Thousands of people have already filled their home full of candy for the night of trick-or-treating. That is why it’s more important than ever to keep your smile healthy with dental checkups. Having a professional dental cleaning can keep gum disease at bay and cavities from lurking about. Here is how dental cleanings can help you this season:

Dental cleanings are vital to your oral health. One of the reasons they are so important is because dentists can remove stubborn plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque and tartar cause harmful bacteria, and when left untreated you could suffer from cavities and gum disease, which could lead to tooth loss and other serious oral health problems.

Another reason to regularly visit your dentist is for a check for oral cancer. In each dental screening, your dentist will be checking for other potential threats to your oral health, and cancer could be a serious threat. This is also a great chance to catch cavities and have them repaired before the cavities becomes too big resulting in the loss of a tooth.

As you can see, there is so many reasons to come and see your friendly dentist.
