Professional Dental Cleanings Make a Big Difference

You’ve been hearing it for years – “make sure to visit Dr. Audrey twice a year for your regular cleanings.” Just in case you’ve ever wondered why regular dental cleanings are so important, the team at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry would like to take this opportunity to let Norman residents in on some information you don’t often hear. Let this article serve as your personal guide to the benefits of getting your teeth cleaned.

Why You Should Get Your Teeth Professionally Cleaned

Unfortunately, some folks in Norman believe that visiting the dentist is unnecessary as long as you brush and floss regularly. That just isn’t the case. In addition to keeping your teeth clean and healthy, regular visits to our expert hygienists at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry ensure that we can have a good look at your pearly whites and make sure nothing is wrong. If you don’t come in for cleanings, you’ll only need more expensive work later in life.

Here are a few reasons get your teeth cleaned:

  • Tartar – We’ve all heard of plaque, but what about tartar? And no, not like the sauce. Tartar is the grown-up version of plaque. In other words, plaque becomes harder as it builds up and eventually turns into tartar. It is difficult for the average Norman resident to remove on their own, but dental cleanings can give you tartar-free teeth!
  • Gum Disease – Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. When plaque and tartar buildup on teeth, they begin irritating gums and cause an infection that actually separates gums from teeth. Left unchecked, gum disease can be a serious, damaging, and painful condition. However, regular cleanings help keep gum disease at bay and give Dr. Audrey a chance to treat problems before they become serious.
  • Bright Smiles – Drinking tea, coffee, and using tobacco are just a few habits that can stain your teeth. However, our hygienists at Proud to Serve Family Dentistry can remove many of these stains during a simple cleaning. On top of that, every cleaning ends with a polishing that will leave you with a whiter, healthier smile.
  • Dental Benefits – If you have dental insurance, but don’t visit Dr. Audrey for your regular cleanings, you are missing out on your benefits! Almost all dental insurance providers allow for two cleanings per year, free of charge. There’s no reason to let your insurance go to waste.

Now you know why it’s so important to have your teeth cleaned. If you have any questions or find that you are suddenly inspired to visit Dr. Audrey for a cleaning, feel free to contact us!

I highly recommend Dr. Audrey! I've had to have 3 amalgam fillings and a root canal tooth removed in the last few months. I chose her because she's SMART certified with the IAOMT, she's a holistic dentist and her great reviews. Her office is clean and the staff is super friendly. I've seen my health improve since having the amalgams removed - the numbing/tingling in my face is almost completely gone and now I'm able to continue with my heavy metal detox safely!

Dr. Audrey is great! After taking my kids to several other dentists who were horrible, it is so nice to go to a dentist I can trust. She is open to more natural health choices, which is a huge plus. Also, she doesn't push unnecessary procedures just to make more money, like most other dentists. Having a trust-worthy dentist is so valuable, especially when you are dealing with dental issues. The staff and hygienists are also very friendly and do great work. I highly recommend them!

Dr. May-Jones Is an excellent dentist. During my most recent appointment she was breaking in a new assistant and not only was her work great but she was kind and patient to her staff. I have seen the other side of that coin and, especially in today’s environment, I appreciate her attitude along with her work.
