Your oral health is important to your overall health, which is why you need to come to see our team for regular checkups. We will keep your mouth healthy with professional cleaning, a full exam, digital and traditional X-rays, and oral cancer screening.
It is very important that you visit your dentist regularly for a checkup. Checkups will help to keep your teeth and gums in top health. Dental health problems are not always obvious to us and sometimes can only be detected in the early stages by a dental health professional. Early treatment is always best as it can often halt advancement and help you avoid painful or costly future issues.
You should come and see us at Smile For Life for your regular checkup every six months. With our highly skilled team, your oral health is in good hands.
When you come for your dental checkup, you can expect there to be two parts: the dental exam and cleaning.
Our dentist will first examine your teeth, checking for cavities, plaque, and tartar buildup. You will have your teeth X-rayed so that we know exactly the state of your teeth. Your gums will also be checked for early signs of gum disease before we do an oral cancer screening.
Following this exam, your teeth will be professionally cleaned and scaled, removing tartar buildup that cannot be removed at-home by brushing and flossing.
If you require any treatment like fillings, your dentist will discuss this with you and make a follow-up appointment.
It is essential that you take good care of your teeth between your regular visits to us. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day to remove plaque and bacteria and prevent it from building up and forming tartar. It is recommended that you use a toothpaste containing fluoride for the health of your teeth. Daily flossing and rinsing with mouthwash can also help to keep oral bacteria away.
If you have any questions or need any advice about your oral care routine, don’t hesitate to ask any of us during your regular checkups.
