Visiting your dentist routinely is important. Please consider these three benefits of visiting your dentist every six months:
1. Prevent tooth decay by way of a professional dental cleaning. Brushing and flossing at home is one part of proper oral care. The other part is the cleaning you receive at our dentistry office. Using professional tools and techniques, our dental hygienists remove tartar (hardened plaque that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay) and dental plaque from your teeth and gum line.
2. Find out if your at-home teeth cleaning routine is effective. Our hygienists and Dr. Donald Wilcox can determine how well your at-home dental care is working. They will also make customized recommendations for improvement, so that you know how to achieve and maintain your best oral health.
3. Catch dental problems early with a dental exam. During your dental exam, Dr. Wilcox uses a visual exam, x-rays and other assessments of oral health to spot dental problems. A professional dental exam helps you avoid problems like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ, oral cancer and bite misalignment.
