Why are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

Sometimes, it’s the little things that have the largest impact, and this idea is certainly true when it comes to oral health. Although dental checkups and cleanings may seem routine and small, they have an enormously important effect on keeping your smile strong and preventing decay. In fact, other than everyday maintenance, these regular appointments are one of the essential things you can do to avoid cavities and oral infections.

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

When we perform a checkup, we specifically look at your teeth and gums for any signs of trouble. We take X-rays to identify any problems that may be hidden from the naked eye. After examining your entire mouth, we will discuss any issues we find with you and recommend any follow-up treatment. We may also talk to you about your brushing or flossing technique, eating habits, or any other tips to help you maintain a healthier smile.

What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning

Even if you brush and floss every day, you may have missed some areas of hardened plaque or tartar. These deposits are extremely tough to get rid of by yourself. That’s why our hygienists take the time to clean your teeth professionally by removing tartar with specialized tools. Then, they polish your teeth, which can take off a few shades of discoloration, meaning your smile will look bright and beautiful in addition to feeling fresh and clean!
