South Central PA’s Premier Teeth Cleaning Services
We have all been taught the importance of keeping our teeth clean. Brush after every meal, floss at least once a day, and finish it off with a good swig or two of mouthwash. And since every person out there follows these directions, we never have to visit a dentist ever again. Right? Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.
In a perfect world, people would all be able to maintain their teeth without ever needing the professional services of a dentist, but in reality, even the most diligent and disciplined toothbrushers and flossers still require the cleaning services of a trained dentist.

Why You Should Have Your Teeth Cleaned By A Professional
It’s important to understand why dental cleanings are necessary before you can fully appreciate the value of professional teeth cleaning services. There are two major reasons we need professional teeth cleaning:
- To prevent diseases in the rest of the body like heart disease, dementia, and complications of diabetes.
- To prevent tooth loss.
We think these are two convincing reasons why you should visit the dentist for regular teeth cleaning services. Beyond the major reasons, there are also some things you should know about yourself and your family in regards to medical history prior to scheduling your dental cleaning appointment.
Know Your Medical History
If you know your family has a history of heart disease or cancer, these are important facts to disclose when you visit your primary care doctor. Just as these conditions are essential to an effective medical examination, the same goes for the dentist. If your family has a history of gum disease, it’s important to figure out what type of gum disease and the severity of the condition. These things are hereditary, but modern dentistry is very effective at combating genetic oral ailments.
It’s also important to know if you will need an antibiotic after dental treatments. Because certain treatments and procedures allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream (bacteremia), some people with weak immune systems will require antibiotics to ensure infections do not spread to other areas of the body. Most of us will not have to worry about the risk of infection from a simple teeth cleaning, but the risk is still there. Your safety and health are paramount to us, so this information is vital to our processes.
