You know that if you’re interested in caring for your smile well, you’ll need to floss and brush your teeth regularly. You probably know that if you don’t, you’ll be more vulnerable to tooth decay and other issues. Still, you’ll also need to visit a dentist every six months if you’d like to keep your teeth as healthy as they should be.

An important part of these appointments is a dental cleaning. You see, when you come in for a professional cleaning, we’ll be able to clean your teeth and remove stains that you can’t take care of at home. Furthermore, during these appointments, we may be able to recognize signs of more serious problems that could eventually require expensive treatments. In other words, these visits can ultimately save you money since cleanings are fairly inexpensive.

If you visit our dentist, our team will be able to recognize issues such as oral cancer, which is far easier to treat if it’s caught early. Similarly, we can help you recognize signs of gum disease and tooth decay, and may be able to help you reverse it. This is extremely important because tooth decay lead to heart disease and respiratory problems.

If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment with us, or learning more about bi-annual cleanings, please don’t hesitate to give First Dental a call at 620-225-5154. Dr. Ryan Lehmkuhler and our team look forward to hearing from you soon!
