Regular Dental Cleanings & Exams in Seattle
Happier, Healthier Teeth for a Brighter Smile
Detect Problems at Their Earliest Stages
Too often, people believe that a trip to the dentist is unnecessary. Some people hold onto the theory that brushing at home is an adequate alternative to thorough dental cleanings while others simply feel anxious when a dentist comes near them with scary-looking tools. Keeping up with the health of your teeth is just as important as keeping up with the health of your body, and the only way to determine the full extent of your dental health is by participating in routine dental exams with a professional dental team. At Theron Baker DDS, we take the health of your teeth and gums very seriously, which is why our family-friendly practice has been providing the Seattle area with exceptional dental care for nearly a decade.

Why Do I Need My Teeth Professionally Cleaned?
Brushing and flossing daily help remove a great deal of plaque; but, eliminating all of the plaque is nearly impossible. Once plaque hardens into tartar (calculus), the only way it can be removed is by a professional teeth cleaning from your dentist or dental hygienist. Dental teeth cleanings are purely preventative in nature and does not treat an active infection.
Bacteria found in plaque and tartar is irritating to the gums, causing inflammation and bleeding. If you do not treat this inflammation or infection (also known as gum or periodontal disease) becomes destructive to the tissues supporting the teeth.
Why is it important to treat the inflammation or infection? Gum disease is linked to tooth loss and health risks like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, stroke, lung problems, preterm low-birth weight in babies and even erectile dysfunction.
Benefits of Good Oral Hygiene
Below are a few of the benefits of practicing good oral hygiene.
- You will have less plaque to remove during routine dental checkups
- Professional cleanings will be faster and more comfortable
- You minimize the need for dental procedures due to tooth decay or gum disease
- You reduce your annual dental budget
- You feel healthier
- Your breath is fresher
- You are more confident about your smile
Healthy teeth, healthy body
Problems that could occur with teeth are not like those with the body. More often than not, you know if something is wrong with your body because you feel pain or some kind of discomfort. With your teeth, pain is often the last sign before permanent damage occurs. But by maintaining the health of your mouth, your body benefits as well. Oral health is an important factor in aiding digestion, preventing tooth loss, and warding off disease. Poor oral health could contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer, so at Theron Baker DDS, we work towards ensuring that your teeth and gums are healthy! Not only do we provide gentle services suited to the most fearful of patients, but we can often spot and treat potential problem areas before they develop into bigger issues.
Keeping your smile bright
Certain foods and beverages can stain your teeth, leaving you with a slightly yellowed smile that does nothing for your self-esteem. Brushing twice a day, every day does help, but professional dental cleanings can remove tartar buildup, polish your teeth, and erase most tobacco, coffee, and tea stains to uncover the brighter smile underneath. Our dentists can also see to your periodontal health, which is essential for keeping your teeth firmly rooted in your gums and warding off infections that might lead to more serious dental problems
