Did you know that when you receive dental cleanings you are taking steps to prevent significant health problems? We encourage you to not skip dental cleanings because they can lower your risk of issues such as heart disease, stroke, and oral cancer.

Despite oral health disease being highly preventable, it is a common problem affecting many patients. What you eat can impact your smile by causing cavities and affecting or exacerbating diabetes, stroke, heart disease, obesity, and cancer.

Caring for your smile requires caring for your overall health. We encourage you to perform daily brushing and flossing at home, as well as visiting the dentist for routine dental cleanings and exams to reduce the risk of poor health conditions.

Here are the steps we take during a cleaning to protect your smile:

– Removing any tartar on the teeth or gumline to prevent tooth decay and gum disease

– Checking for signs of cavities, gum disease, or cancerous lesions

– Removing tooth stains caused by coffee, wine, coffee, tea, or tobacco to restore the brightness of your teeth

– Identifying and treating early signs of dental problems while they are still fairly simple and economical to repair

We invite you to contact American Dental Associates at 773-284-1645 today to visit our dentist, Dr. Dhiraj Sharma, for a dental cleaning and exam in Chicago, Illinois. We aim to protect your overall wellbeing as well as your smile.
