Do you normally get up for work and start your day with your dental routine? Brushing, flossing, even swishing and gargling some minty mouthwash—just how any dentist would recommend. But, to maintain excellent dental health, it takes a partnership. One that requires participation from both you and Dr. Angela Ruff by keeping your regular dental appointments. If you haven’t had a dental cleaning in Fayetteville, NC in a while, these 5 reasons will have you questioning why you every skipped a dental appointment in the first place.
1. Early detection is key to preventative care.
We can identify health issues early on and increase your chances of survival or reversal by leaps and bounds compared. Moreover, there are many cases in which dentists are preforming their thorough dental examinations and notice abnormalities that point to major general health problems. There are countless stories of dentists discovering patients either have or are at risk for diabetes because of the bad condition of their gums. Recent studies have shown there is a direct correlation between poor oral health and heart disease/strokes as well. Maintaining a healthy smile can help keep your whole body in good shape!
2. Dazzling teeth last a lifetime.
Don’t you feel much better after having your teeth professionally cleaned? It feels refreshing to have your teeth polished with nutritious products for your teeth and it’s really healthy for your mouth. Professional cleanings remove plaque, hardened tartar, and dangerous bacteria that may have been missed from your normal dental routine. This lessens your risk for tooth decay and major dental problems that would otherwise develop when you miss your dental appointments.
3. We educate patients in a fun, hands-on way.

We can show you the correct techniques to keep up your good oral health and motivate you to stay consistent.
