If you want to protect your oral health, you should commit to receiving routine checkups and cleanings every six months. In conjunction with a thorough oral hygiene regimen, routine visits can help us diagnose and prevent the development of oral health conditions. Cleanings and checkups are comfortable, non-invasive ways to maintain optimal oral health.
Checkups are very thorough. Our dentist will review the health of the entire oral cavity through a physical examination and with diagnostic equipment. Conditions revealed by checkups can include tooth decay, gum disease, oral infections, and oral cancer. Cleanings, like checkups, are very important in keeping a mouth healthy. Since our at-home oral hygiene routines simply cannot remove all debris left behind by food particles, cleanings are necessary. A dental cleaning removes all plaque and tartar accumulation above the gum line and polishes teeth thoroughly for an impeccably clean feeling.
