You already know the importance of brushing for two minutes, twice a day and flossing after each meal. Hopefully, you stay on top of your at-home dental care, but does that mean you can skip your next scheduled dental visit altogether?
While the daily at-home dental hygiene is essential to your on-going healthy smile, it’s also important that you visit your dentist every six months to have your smile looked at by a professional. While your daily maintenance will help keep bacteria and cavities to a minimum, having a professional and their tools examine your smile will allow for the natural tartar and plaque buildup to be scraped off your teeth. You’ll also get the benefit of having a professional look at your teeth and spot any potential problems before they are able to take root.
With the help of a professional checking your teeth twice a year, you can ensure that your beautiful smile stays healthy. Our professional staff can help guide you about any issues that may be trying to sprout up in your smile and let you know the best course of action. They can also advise you on your at-home care routine and, of course, give you a fresh toothbrush to ensure you aren’t spreading harmful bacteria.
Your dental checkup is also a chance for you to ask your dentist or hygienist any questions you may have about properly caring for your smile, whether you have noticed a slight toothache or other problem, or just have a general question about how you can best take care of your teeth. With all this advice, you’ll be able to ensure that your healthy and natural smile lasts you a lifetime.
