The Importance of Routine Preventive Care
One of the best things you can do for your smile is to stay on top of your oral hygiene regimen and your biannual dental visits. Even if you don’t have any smile concerns, checkups can ensure that any built-up plaque and tartar are removed and that you don’t have any small dental issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye. The sooner we can treat dental problems, such as cavities and gingivitis, the more time and money you can save down the road. In addition to regular exams and cleanings, we also provide other preventive treatments such as sleep apnea appliances to help you sleep better, custom mouthguards to protect your teeth during sports and from teeth grinding, and periodontal care to keep your gums in great shape.
What to Expect At Your Biannual Checkup
We ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to check in and complete any necessary paperwork. When we call you back for your appointment, we will get any necessary X-rays which should only take a few minutes. Once your X-rays are complete, we will show you to your chair and one of our skilled dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and provide any needed sealants and fluoride treatments. After your cleaning, we will polish your teeth to renew their shine and one of our skilled doctors will sit down to go over your oral health, any findings from the X-rays, and examine your teeth and gums. If needed, we will schedule any follow-up appointments based on the results of your exam.
