We like to educate our dental patients on the importance of keeping up with regular dental cleanings and exams. At StarBrite Dental, we use the latest technology and take the time to assess your oral health status.
Hygiene is not just a cleaning. It's a clinical appointment. Hygiene is the most important, least invasive, least expensive, dental appointment we offer. Hygiene for one hour, on a regular basis, is the key to optimal care.
Regular hygiene patients spend 50-75% LESS on dental treatments over a lifetime.
With regular hygiene appointments, most problems are caught early and need less treatment. Seeing a dentist regularly helps to keep your mouth in top shape and allows us to watch for developments that may point to other health issues. Research suggests that the health of your mouth mirrors the condition of your body as a whole. Your oral hygiene is not only important for the health of your teeth and gums, but it's also for your overall health.
Regular hygiene patients have healthier gums and bone.
Another reason to keep up with your cleanings and exams are that more than 75% of Americans have some form of periodontal disease but only 60% are aware of the problem. Gum disease has been linked to many systemic diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease, just to name a few.
If you are overdue for your hygiene appointment, don't wait until you have a problem that could lead to an expensive dental treatment, call StarBrite Dental at (301) 770-1070. We look forward to seeing you in the office. For the month of February 2014, receive a free toothbrush with your cleaning!
