Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings

The health of your teeth and mouth is important for the well-being of your entire body. Routine brushing of your teeth and flossing at home are both very important. Another necessary step is to visit a dentist for a dental examination and cleaning, both of which are essential for maintaining good oral hygiene.

It is important to get exams not only to keep your smile looking at its best but also for your overall health. Gum infections and periodontal diseases are related to heart disease and stroke. Regular dental exams and professional cleanings can prevent many other health problems and keep you healthier and make you look better.

Some of the most important reasons to have regular professional exams and cleaning include::

  1. a.) Preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath
  2. b.) Knowing that plaque and tartar are tough to beat even if you brush and floss regularly
  3. c.) Keeping the teeth white by reducing staining from food and drinks
  4. d.) Having a smile that will last a lifetime


During the exams, the dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health problems. The dentist may also take X-rays to see beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. The images provided will help the dentist discover dental issues not visible to the naked eye.

Professional cleanings help:


Gum diseases are infections of tissues surrounding teeth, and when untreated, will result in bone loss. Regular dental cleanings and good home care are main factors in preventing gum disease.


When a screening is done, the dentist is able to detect early diagnosis of oral cancer, which is important in improving the prognosis of cancer.


Regular dental visits will help the dentist track your oral health. When you’re looking for the best dentist near me, contact Beautiful Smiles of Bayonne!
