When you think of summer, you often think about the fun parts of it: the sun, the food, the beach (especially if you live close to Long Beach like we do). But, it’s also a great time to think about the things you need to do in order to continue having a fun time, like your regular dental cleaning.

The kids are typically out of school at this time, and that means school is no longer an obstacle for taking your family to get their teeth cleaned.

As life opens back up your children may start up with summer-type activities, like sports or summer camp. This is also a good time to consider getting custom mouthguards so that your family’s teeth get an extra layer of protection. Your local dentistry (like ours) are equipped to help provide this service for you.

So, we all know that regular dental cleanings are important, but just how important are they?

  1. Professional dental cleanings can remove plaque and stains that normal, daily at-home cleanings may not be able to remove.
  2. Regular exams means that your dentist can identify possible oral issues before they become too big or too costly.
  3. A professional cleaning can brighten your smile, giving your visibly whiter teeth and of course, more confidence!
  4. Save money – if you have dental insurance, then it is likely that a cleaning is already paid for! That means you get a low-cost dental checkup to help prevent more expensive treatments later on.

If you’re unsure what benefits your dental insurance provides, and you’re a current patient of record, you are more than welcome to give our office a call and we can verify for you. While you’re at it, you can go ahead and book your appointment! Give our lovely Long Beach dental team a call at 562-434-6414, or you can request an appointment online here.
