Life is busier than ever. When we welcome patients to our Garden City, GA dental office, we love catching up on the big events in life, and everything moves so fast. Busy family schedules and demands at work can make fitting dental appointments into your routine tricky. It might be tempting to skip an appointment, but here are some reasons why you shouldn’t.

Preventive Dentistry Is Affordable

Regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays are among the most affordable dental treatments in our Garden City dental office. Just two visits per year can help Dr. Martin stay on top of any developing issues.

When you take care of your teeth at home and also have professional cleanings, you can count on better overall dental health than those who don’t.

You Could Save Your Heart (and the Rest of Your Body, Too)

Did you know that gum disease impacts your heart, lungs, and brain? When you skip dental cleanings, tartar develops, and bacteria cause gum disease. Gum disease, which is an inflammatory illness, can complicate heart conditions, respiratory illnesses, and has even been linked with Alzheimer’s disease. Teeth cleanings protect your smile and your wellbeing.

Dental Cleanings Keep Your Teeth Looking Healthy and Bright

After your dental hygienist removes tartar with hand instruments or an ultrasonic cleaner, they will file up with a polish using special dental toothpaste to remove surface stains on the teeth. That final polish gives you a smooth, fresh feeling you can only get from a professional teeth cleaning.

If you are thinking of teeth whitening in Garden City, a dental cleaning is the best place to start.
