Importance of Regular Dental Examinations and Cleanings
May 25, 2021

There are times when our schedules are so busy that we can’t imagine fitting in an appointment for a dental check-up and tooth polish that we scheduled six months ago, or we may forget about making an appointment altogether. However, postponing or ignoring these appointments for you and/or your family members will elevate the risk of developing oral health problems that may require more extensive and invasive treatment in the future. Make sure you and your family are scheduled and ready for your next exam and cleaning!

Importance of Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings for You

Regular dental examinations and cleanings allow our professional staff to assess the health of your teeth and gums. We will determine if you have any dental health conditions that require treatment and set up any necessary procedures. In addition, we will remove all built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth to help reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Most dental exams and cleanings take very little time to complete. This is beneficial considering the amount of time that more complex procedures may require to restore your oral health if you let small dental problems grow larger.

Importance of Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings for Your Family

Of course, regular dental exams and cleanings are essential for your family members as well—especially your children. Children are vulnerable to tooth decay due to their diets which are often higher in sugar, and their developmental motor skills which may inhibit their ability to brush and floss their teeth properly. Our dental care team can support your family’s oral health by identifying any potential issues and offering guidance and support in terms of at-home oral hygiene habits.

Our dental care team is committed to the oral health and wellness of you and your family. That’s why we emphasize the importance of regular dental examinations and cleanings to keep you and your family’s teeth and gums at their healthiest. These appointments significantly reduce future time, worry, and money spent on more invasive procedures to correct dental complications. Call us for your next appointment today!
