Regular dental checkups are an essential part of preventive general dentistry. Attending regular appointments every 6 months allows the dentist to monitor the health of the teeth and gums, ensuring that any decay or other developing issues can be treated as soon as possible. Routine appointments typically last 20 to 40 minutes, and it is recommended by the American Dental Association to schedule a checkup every 6 months. Without proper dental care, patients run the risk of developing gum disease, which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an infection of the soft tissues that support the teeth. Gum disease is caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on the teeth. Periodontal diseases attack just below the gum line, where they can cause the attachment of the tooth and supporting tissues to break down, which leads to tooth loss.
Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to diagnose and treat issues at their earliest stages. Early detection and treatment will save unnecessary discomfort, time, and money. Your dental checkup includes a visual exam, X-rays, and a professional dental cleaning. Our doctors will carefully evaluate each patient’s dental health and checks for any changes since a previous visit. X-rays will allow the doctor to check the inside of the teeth for any signs of damage that are invisible to the naked eye. Patients may not need X-rays at every visit, but they are an important tool for evaluating the patient’s teeth.
The key to good oral health is daily brushing and flossing to prevent the buildup of plaque and decay in the mouth. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, brush your teeth and tongue twice a day, floss at least once daily, and make regular visits to the dentist for checkups and professional cleaning.
