• Certain Medications
• Teeth That Are Hard To Keep Clean
First Sign of Gum Disease: Gingivitis

There are many beneficial reasons to have your yearly dental cleanings.
2. Helps Prevent Bad Breath : Poor oral hygiene, periodontal disease, food stuck in teeth, unclean dentures, oral cancers and throat infections are a few of the factors that can lead to awful breath.
3. Brighter, Whiter Smile : When you do your yearly cleaning the dental hygienist will remove stains, plague and tartar buildup. After the hygienist has removed all the plaque and tartar they will polish your teeth leaving them brighter and whiter!
4. Save Money : Dental plans offered in your work benefits will help you save money by having little or no payments. Using your dental plan will keep your teeth clean and healthy and save you from potentially costly dental problems in the future.
