How long has it been since your last dental cleaning? If it’s been more than six months, we welcome and encourage you to plan a visit to our office before the end of the year. Here are a few reasons why.

Professional Cleaning Are Needed For Optimal Oral Health

The American Dental Association recommends professional cleanings in addition to your daily brushing and flossing. No matter how well you brush and how often you floss, you are likely to have plaque and tartar. A professional cleaning will remove this buildup, which can reduce your risk for tooth decay and gum disease.

We Can Catch Problems In The Early Stages

A majority of people will have cavities and will have gum disease at least once in their lives. If you make dental exams part of your oral care routine, we can spot these problems in the early stages. By treating these early, we can spare you from gum recession, tooth infections, tooth loss, and systemic health issues.

You Shouldn’t Lose Your Benefits

If you have dental insurance, there is a good chance that all or most of the cost of cleanings are covered under your policy. At the same time, many policies have benefits that expire at the end of the calendar year. If you don’t schedule a cleaning, you are losing a fundamental benefit of your plan.

Don’t lose your benefits or your healthy smile. Call 254-401-0129 today or contact us online to request an appointment at Starr General Dentistry in Waco, TX.
