The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

Good oral health is dependent on regular visits to the dentist, and regular check-ups. When you visit us, we will examine the teeth and gums, while looking for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.  We may also require a safe x-ray so that we can check for hidden problems such as cavities that may exist between the teeth, or even jawbone issues.

When we catch these problems early enough, our professional dental team will be able to provide treatment before things get out of control.  This helps because when untreated, things can get more serious.

In addition to this, regular check-ups can help identify things that might be contributing to negative oral health issues such as lifestyle habits and dietary choices. This allows our patients to make changes to improve their oral health which leads to overall health and complete well-being.

Tips for Maintaining Good Oral Health

  • There are things you can do yourself to maintain a healthy smile in addition to regular dental check-ups, and these include the following:
  • Brushing with fluoride toothpaste at least twice per day can help to remove plaque and prevent tooth decay.
  • Do not underestimate the power of dental floss. Removing those food particles and plaque from between your teeth helps tremendously because that toothbrush can not reach some places.
  • When you use mouthwash, you can help kill bacteria and keep your breath feeling fresh.
  • A healthy diet is good for your overall health, but it is also good for your teeth.  A diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean protein can help promote good oral health.  
  • Food and drinks with sugar and acidic ingredients can erode the enamel of your teeth and can cause decay.
  • Protect your teeth if you play sports, or even if you are one who grinds your teeth at night with a mouthguard.
