Having a dental checkup every 6 months is essential to maintaining your oral health. Not only do we recommend a dental cleaning and check-up every 6 months, but the American Dental Association does as well. Regular dental visits are crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. During this dental visit we will examine your mouth for any signs of tooth decay, existing restorations will be checked to see if broken or cracked and if they need to be replaced. We will also perform an oral cancer exam and evaluate the health of your gums for any signs of periodontal disease. Did you know periodontal disease is the number one cause of tooth loss among adults and is virtually painless until it has progressed to its final stages, at which time treatment can be ineffective and tooth loss will result? Identifying and treating periodontal disease early is essential in stopping disease progression.
Lastly, you will receive a dental cleaning at your 6 month checkup. Our hygienist will remove any plaque and tartar that has built up around your teeth and gums. She will teach you how to maintain good oral health at home. You will learn how certain foods, beverages and “habits” can affect your mouth and how to limit their damaging effects. We recommend a Fluoride treatment for both children and adults to help strengthen the enamel of your teeth and make them more resistant to decay.
As you can see, a 6 month checkup is so much more than “just a cleaning.” Keeping a 6 month re-care schedule is vital to maintaining your oral health.
