A trip to the dentist should not only be for emergencies. Routine visits and professional cleanings by your hygienist keep your smile clean and bright they also check for tooth decay, gum disease and other issues.
It is also very important to have dental radiographs once a year which allows the dentist to see bone levels and infections that may not be necessarily causing pain yet. It is very important to catch problems before they worsen.
An oral cancer screening is also a part of every check up.
Once the plaque and tartar deposits are removed, your hygienist will polish your teeth to remove stain and make them feel smooth and clean. Your hygienist can answer any questions and give you the proper home care instructions. These routine checkups also give your dental hygienist the opportunity to compare your oral health from past and present visits.
