Dentistry has come a long way over the years. Now, that people have better access to dental care, they are able to keep their smile looking healthy for much longer. There are many great reasons that you should have your teeth cleaned every 3-6 months, depending on what your dentist recommends.
Remove Tartar and Plaque
Of course one of the biggest reasons to go to your dentist in Dallas for hygiene appointments is to have the tartar and plaque removed from your teeth. When tarter and plaque stays on your teeth, it causes the bacteria in your mouth to grow and it can lead to gum disease as well as tooth decay.
By going to your dentist on a regular basis, you will reduce your risks of gum disease and decay.
Early Detection of Cavities
As part of your oral hygiene appointment, Dr. Roe comes in and does a checkup of your teeth. He will determine if you have any cavities that need to be filled. It is best to get cavities filled before the holes deepen and you are left with more dental problems.
Allowing your oral health go, can affect your overall health, not just the appearance of your teeth. Proper care of your teeth is highly essential if you are looking to lead a healthy life.
Before you can have your teeth professionally whitened, all dental work will need to be completed. If you are considering brightening your smile, you will want to schedule a routine cleaning and checkup. During the visit, Dr. Roe will determine if you have any need of dental treatment.
If you do not have need of dental treatment, we will be able to proceed with the whitening of your teeth.

Detect Other Health Issues
Your dentist is a doctor and knows how to detect some health concerns through your mouth. They will be able to inform you if you need to go to another doctor in regards to medical treatments. Depending on what you are suffering from, they may be able to help you with the problem.
For example, Dr. Roe can help those that have minor to medium sleep apnea. He can make a mouth guard that is worn at night and helps the patient to treat their disorder.
