Cleaning Dryden

We need teeth cleanings for two reasons:

  • To prevent diseases in the rest of the body like heart disease, dementia, and complications of diabetes
  • To prevent tooth loss
  • The mouth is an area that?s completely different from the entire body, and it takes quite a beating from the food we eat and the talking we do all day long. And this unique environment requires special care.

Teeth cleanings remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. This buildup is for the most part natural ? kind of like how a boat picks up barnacles just by being in the ocean. But too much buildup leads to gum disease.

The reason tartar needs to be removed is because your body sees it as a foreign invader. As with any other foreign invader, like a flu bug or an infection, your body ?sends in the troops? using the immune system to fight off the infection. There is a battle in your mouth at all times, and the war is never over. Teeth cleanings level the playing field by keeping things in check.

Call Viva Dental Dryden at (807) 223-6479 to book your appointment with Dr. Sahar Rakhshanfar. We are conveniently located at 104 King St. in Dryden, ON.
