  • Why is regular teeth cleaning important?

    Regular dental checkups are essential for maintaining good oral health. During these appointments, dentists can perform screenings for oral cancer, take digital X-rays to identify any underlying issues and provide professional cleanings to remove plaque and bacteria. These checkups are an essential part of preserving your oral health, as many oral health concerns can only be detected by a trained dentist.

    Early intervention is essential to combat gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss. Once the disease has caused damage to the tooth and its supporting bone, it cannot be reversed, but only managed or replaced. The dental hygienist will use a small ruler to measure the “pocket” of the gums around each tooth, noting areas that cannot be cleaned by a toothbrush or floss. X-rays are used in conjunction with these measurements to identify areas of bone recession.

  • How often should you get dental checkups?

    Ideally, dental checkups should be done every six months. At your first appointment, your dentist will ask for your health history to gain an understanding of your past and current health. After that, routine checkups are important for detecting any changes in your oral health and for maintaining your teeth and mouth in the best condition possible.

    The American Dental Association and most dentists recommend six months because the maintenance and cleaning provided at each visit is the best way to ensure you maintain healthy teeth and gums.

    If your mouth is free from gum disease and heavy buildup, it’s typically recommended that you get a teeth cleaning every six months to prevent tartar and stains from building up. However, if you have a history of periodontitis, it’s recommended that you get a teeth cleaning every 3-4 months to maintain your oral health.

  • Why are brushing and flossing important?

    Brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. Not only do they help to freshen your breath, but they also disrupt the biofilm of bacteria that can cause cavities and gum disease. There are many different products on the market, so be sure to speak to your hygienist to find the best option. It is recommended to brush twice a day for two minutes and floss once, and it is important to encourage children to make these dental habits part of their routine to ensure a healthy smile for life.
