What Makes Dental Checkups So Beneficial To Your Smile?

What is it, exactly, that makes routine dental checkups so valuable to your smile, and your oral health? If you are taking care of your smile by brushing, flossing, and watching your sugar intake, should you really worry about coming in for regular exams? There are several benefits you gain from these checkups, even if you feel absolutely confident in your preventive care. During a professional dental cleaning, you may be surprised to find how your hygienist is able to find – and remove – plaque and tartar you left behind. Your exams allow your dentist the chance to review your oral health, and alert you to any worrying signs of trouble.

How A Dental Cleaning Protects You From Future Cavities

Your hygienist has the ability to reach, and carefully clean, areas in your mouth you may struggle to take care of. They also have the tools needed to remove tartar, something you will not be able to do by brushing and flossing alone. Each cleaning offers advanced protection against potential tooth decay, effectively lowering your risk for future cavities.

Information About The State Of Your Smile Can Help You Maintain Good Oral Health

Your dentist is able to take a careful look at your teeth, and can find problems before they begin to cause obvious symptoms. You might be surprised to learn you have a cavity, despite your confidence that everything is fine. When your dentist is able to identify trouble at earlier stages, it means a less involved treatment for you. After a smaller cavity is removed, your dentist can supply you with a dental filling. However, if you avoid the dentist’s chair until tooth decay has grown more severe, you could wind up needing a dental crown.
