Cavities, gum disease, and most other oral health issues develop unnoticed until they become quite painful and more difficult to treat. However, almost all these problems can be treated before they cause you unnecessary damage or discomfort with early detection! During your dental checkup, we’ll closely inspect your mouth, including:
If we discover any early warning signs of developing oral health issues, we’ll be able to address them right away. Additionally, we’ll also investigate any new or worrisome dental symptoms you tell us about, answer your questions, and go over the best ways for you to keep your smile healthy at home.
Even the most thorough at-home dental routines can benefit from a biannual professional cleaning. Plaque and bacteria have a tendency to hide in areas of the mouth that are notoriously difficult to clean, like behind your back molars, between your teeth, and just underneath your gumline. Over time, that plaque will harden into a tough material known as tartar. This substance is brimming with bacteria and can only be removed by a dental professional.
During your dental cleaning, we’ll use a keen eye and specialized tools to gently clean away built up plaque and tartar. Once all those particles are cleared away, we’ll happily demonstrate the best flossing techniques and advise you on which areas of your mouth need extra attention. Then, we’ll give your teeth a quick polish to remove any surface stains and leave them gleaming and refreshed!
Many people think they don’t need to visit their North Valleys dentist twice a year if their teeth look and feel fine. However, they don’t realize that postponing their appointment can be a costly and painful choice. Don’t wait for a toothache or dental emergency to schedule a visit with a “dentist near me.” Keep your smile healthy, beautiful, and intact for life with a little care now in the form of routine dental checkups and cleanings.
