DENTAL CHECKUPS & CLEANINGS
As potential problems in the mouth can progress significantly in just a few months, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a dental checkup and cleaning.
During your checkup, we assess your teeth for any problems including decay, cracks, and re-evaluate your old restorations to see if they need replacing. We also inspect the soft tissues in your mouth for periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other issues.
By doing regular checkups and cleaning every six months, we can often reduce the potential for large dental problems.
For example, a small decay can eat away your tooth if left untreated. A crack-line in your tooth can lead to potential fracture of the entire tooth, causing difficulty or inability to restore. Advanced gum disease can easily cause tooth loss.
In addition, oral cancer is the cause of more than 7,500 deaths each year in America.
If these conditions are detected and treated in its early stages, they can be controlled.
