Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

You may think that there isn’t much of a point in regular cleanings and checkups if you aren’t feeling any pain or discomfort. However, skipping these visits can have long-term consequences. When you attend professional cleanings, your hygienist will remove plaque and tartar that has built up. This helps to prevent cavities and gum disease from developing. Your dentist checks for existing oral health issues so they can be treated early on. If small issues are left untreated, you are more likely to need a root canal, dental crown, or an extraction. By keeping your oral health in good shape, you can lower your risk of other medical issues, like cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

For your dental checkup, your dentist will begin by visually examining your teeth, gums, existing dental work, and overall bite. We will also take a look around your mouth for early signs of oral cancer. Generally, once a year, we will take X-rays of your mouth to ensure that there aren’t any issues going on under the surface that we can’t see. If we see anything abnormal, we will create a treatment plan to restore the health of your smile. If you have any questions regarding at-home dental care or dental treatments, this is the perfect time for you to ask.

Even if you are diligent about your dental hygiene routine at home, there are still going to be some spots that you can’t quite reach on your own. This is where your routine professional cleanings come in. Your dental hygienist will use special instruments to remove plaque and tartar that has built up on and between the teeth and along your gumline. This will reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, bad breath, and other problems. Your teeth will also be flossed and polished to perfection!
