A routine dental cleaning should be completed by a hygienist at a minimum of every 6 months.  A dental cleaning is important to prevent gum disease, also known as periodontal disease.  It can also help detect oral cancer, tooth decay, and a plethora of other oral conditions.  Let the hygienists at District Dental Center perform a routine dental cleaning to check for any potential oral conditions that could be arising.

Benefits of dental cleanings

Routine dental cleanings are an important step in maintaining good oral hygiene and overall health.  Over time, oral plaque can lead to tarter build up on the teeth as well as below the gum line.  This tarter, over time, can cause periodontal disease–which is bone loss around the teeth.  Periodontal disease has been linked to:

  • Cariodvascular Diease
  • Diabetes Type 2
  • Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes, including pre-term low birth weight
  • Osteoporosis

At District Dental Center, Drs. Gialanella and Schobel, and the rest of the staff pride themselves providing state-of-the-art routine dental cleanings.  It is our goal to prevent periodontal disease and therefore, prevent the health complications associated with it.
