Importance of a regular deep cleaning

oral hygiene

To maintain your natural teeth for many years, it’s important to practice good oral hygiene and make regular dentist appointments to resolve any problems as soon as they arise. One of the things that you can do to ensure your teeth are bright and beautiful is to get a regular deep cleaning at Orthodental.

Regular deep cleaning reaches the areas that normal cleaning simply cannot. 

Why is a regular deep cleaning important?

Periodontal disease

If you have any gum issues, regular deep cleansing is crucial in eradicating any issues and producing healthy gums. The main reason for many dental problems is the buildup of bacteria on the gums that results in infection and sometimes, teeth loss. A good deep cleaning at Orthodental will ensure any plaque and tartar is removed and that your mouth is bacteria-free.

Producing a beautiful smile

A regular cleaning appointment will ensure your teeth stay in place and that any yellow marks and stains created by drinking coffee or smoking are removed and prevented.  Having a great smile can boost and individual’s confidence and self-esteem, treating yourself to a deep clean will ensure a long-lasting smile.


Getting your teeth removed is painful and sometimes very costly. Regular cleaning will save you a lot of money over time. By preventing major infections or issues you will save on costly dentist bills in the future. 

Deep cleaning removes any plaque from your gum that is usually the main culprit for cavities and teeth loss, helping you maintain a beautiful smile that you can be proud of. 

Protect your baby.

Did you know that bad gums increase the odds of having a premature baby by three times? Getting regular routine checkups, having good oral hygiene habits, and scheduling a deep cleaning can prevent low birth weight and help you have an easy, stress-free pregnancy. Studies have found that one in four women with gum disease has a risk of going into labor before 35 weeks – this is because gum disease raises the levels of the chemicals that induce labor.

Help you have a long and healthy life.

A connection between good oral and overall health has been confirmed time and time again. In fact, poor dental health was linked with stroke and cardiovascular disease. A regular visit to the dentist’s office and a deep cleaning will ensure many life-threatening issues are caught early on – a big part of your health is mirrored in the condition of your teeth and tongue. It’s interesting to note that those with healthy gums are 70 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. 

Maintain good mental health.

Nothing can make you insecure like bad teeth. Smiling has a positive effect on our well-being and mental health – feeling like you must hide your smile in pictures can do the exact opposite. When you smile, your brain releases small molecules called neuropeptides that help fight off stress. 

Other neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins do better – the endorphins act as a mild pain reliever, serotonin is an antidepressant, whereas dopamine increases the sense of pleasure in the body. Getting a routine deep cleanse will help you feel more confident and smile more, reaping all the benefits of a simple grin.
