The health of your teeth and mouth is vital to the general health of your body, and while routine brushing and flossing at home are required to keep your smile looking its best, we recommend that you visit our dentist for a comprehensive evaluation and cleaning. We recommend that you visit Woodruff Family Dental every six months to maintain your teeth healthy and your smile looking beautiful.
The Dental Examination
Our dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for symptoms of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health issues during your appointment. Our dentist may also recommend that you have X-rays taken to assess what is going on beneath the surface of your teeth and gums.
Our dentist will begin your cleaning by probing the surface of your teeth to see whether you have any cavities and to assess the condition of any existing fillings. The dentist will then perform a periodontal exam to ensure that your gums are tightly attached to your teeth and that no periodontal disease or bone loss is present.
Following that, our dentist will meticulously clean your teeth with a range of equipment to eliminate any hard mineral buildup. Our dentist will then floss your teeth, polish them, and apply fluoride. If your dentist discovers tooth decay or gum disease, they will advise you on how to improve your brushing and flossing practices. Antibiotics or other dental treatments may be recommended in severe situations. If your teeth and gums look to be in good condition, our dentist will most likely advise you to continue brushing and flossing as usual.
Why Are Dental Exams and Deep Cleanings Necessary?
If you want to improve your oral health, you should consider the following benefits of regular deep cleanings and dental exams:
Early Detection of Problems
Many dental disorders might present with similar signs and symptoms, emphasizing the importance of diagnostic tests. The nicest part about dental checkups is that ailments can be detected early and treated before they worsen.
Improves Oral Hygiene
A deep clean should be viewed as a fresh start for you to work on your oral hygiene at home. Once your mouth has been completely cleaned, you will find it easy to maintain such habits at home until your next deep clean.
Improving Overall Oral Health
When reviewing the condition of your oral cavity, the intentionality of taking care of your teeth cannot be overlooked.
