You probably would too. Prevention is incredibly important for your dental health. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and always floss. On top of that, we recomend visiting your dentist once every six months for cleanings and exams. Cavities are easier to take care of if you nip them in the bud. Missing apointments can turn a simple filling into a root canal, and if you didn’t want the filling, you really don’t want the root canal. In the long run, It saves you money and time to come in for checkups and cleanings.
Dental Prevention & Cleanings
WE WOULD RATHER PREVENT A CAVITY THAN FILL A CAVITY.
Aside from a regular check-up, there are other cleaning options your dentist may recommend to you to optimize your oral health and keep your teeth clean and free of disease.
We will check your teeth for cavities, gum disease, and any other developing oral health risks. We will also clean your teeth and remove plaque buildup. If your dentist or oral hygenist are concerned about cavities or odd bone growth, x-rays may be recomended.
X-rays are important to see how your teeth are positioned behind your gums, whether you have cavities, and what is going on with your bones. We recommend periodic x-rays to make sure that everything is ship shape.
