Scheduling regular visits with one of our skilled hygienists is very important and skipping dental check-ups is never a good idea. A twice yearly exam helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums. This is true even when you do not believe your teeth show signs of decay or other issues. In fact, along with daily home oral hygiene, these teeth cleanings actually prevent a wide range of problems beyond cavities. Also, through the use of x-rays, oral screenings and visual exams, we can find signs of disease and other oral health problems.
Some of the most important reasons for visiting Dentistry By Design for your regular dental checkups include:
- Professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar
- Finding and treating cavities early
- Preventing, detecting and treating gum disease
- Finding problems through x-rays, screenings and visual exams
Dental Checkups to Prevent, Find and Treat Cavities and Gum Disease
Preventive care and treatment provide your earliest defense against cavities and gum disease. When you visit Dentistry By Design for routine dental checkups, you receive teeth cleanings and other important dental services. One of our skilled dental hygienists can see and reach the areas of your mouth that you cannot when you brush your teeth and floss at home, removing any plaque or tartar buildup. We may also use preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants to provide extra protection against tooth decay.
Along with prevention of cavities, visiting Dr. Tiner and his team for regular exams and cleanings also helps you prevent gum disease. This disease damages your oral tissues and ultimately causes your teeth to fall out if left untreated. Regular visits allow us to find the earliest signs of these problems and perform special periodontal cleanings to treat the condition when it occurs.
Keeping Your Bad Habits From Causing Big Oral Health Problems
Do you drink too many sugary beverages, brush your teeth with too much force, bite your nails, smoke or grind your teeth? If the answer is yes, then these bad habits can lead to bigger oral health problems. Visiting Dentistry By Design twice a year for your regular cleaning and checkup let us recognize early signs of problems caused by these types of habits. Dr. Tiner can then provide guidance on how to stop damaging your smile.
