Doing this one thing can help prevent heart disease, strokes, diabetes, cancer, bone loss, infection, and more. Not to mention it will brighten your smile and freshen breath. The answer is simple, regular teeth cleanings.  The best part is it requires little effort on your part and if you act now it’s free! For the month of March at My Family Dentist Garland we are doing free regular teeth cleanings to all new patients. Not convinced yet? Here are five more reasons to schedule an appointment for a totally free teeth cleaning.*

  1. Prevent Bad Breath (Halitosis):  Studies have show that 85% of people who have persistent bad breath have a dental problem that is to blame.  Good oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing does much to prevent this from happening but sometimes it may still be present.  Regular dental checkups and cleaning are essential in making sure that your breath is fresh.  More.
  2. Keep Your Teeth:  Gum disease, or periodontitis, is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults.  Having regular checkups and cleanings along with at home care can aid you in keeping your teeth longer.  Having teeth means better ability to chew food and ultimately better health.
  3. Prevent Gum Disease (Periodontitis): If caught early in the gingivitis stage, it can be treated and reversed.  Once it progresses to periodontitis, it can lead to tooth loss, pain, and problems with the heart.  Seeing your dentist twice a year, along with brushing and flossing at home, are key factors in preventing gum disease.


  4. Your Overall Health:  Recent studies have linked periodontal disease with heart attacks and strokes.  The chances of a cardiovascular problem increases with poor oral hygiene.  Having regular cleanings could reduce your risk of a life threatening event.
  5. Prevent Oral Cancer: According to The Oral Cancer Foundation, someone dies from oral cancer, every hour of every day in the United States alone. When you have your dental cleaning, your dentist is also screening for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.  More.
