Children across the country are getting ready for the new school year. In addition, teachers are heading into classrooms and college students are starting the fall semester. Before the school year makes finding time to see the dentist difficult, why not schedule a checkup and cleaning today?
Checkups and Cleanings
A checkup involves the use of technology to help us carefully examine your teeth, gums, oral tissues, and jaw. We’re looking for signs of trouble, such as developing decay, gingivitis or gum disease, TMJ disorder, bruxism, and even oral cancer. Identifying oral health issues in the early stages increases the chances of recovery without the need or extensive treatment options. We will also clean your teeth, which remove all plaque and tartar form your teeth. The procedure significantly reduces the risk of cavities and gum problems. Patients can also leave with a brighter smile and fresher breath. Children, teens, and adults should all have a routine checkup and cleaning done twice a year, making now the perfect time to schedule one.
We will also talk to your family about quality homecare. While a cleaning removes plaque, routine brushing and flossing helps prevent serious buildup from accumulating, protecting your teeth from tooth decay and periodontal disease. You should brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each session. We also suggest flossing at least once a day, preferably before going to bed. However, you can always carry floss with you and clean your teeth after each meal. We may also discuss healthier snack options and other steps you can take to help you and your family enjoy a healthier smile throughout the school year. If you’re ready to schedule a visit, then please contact our team today!
