This blog post from The Addison Dentist is for smiles that are overdue for a cleaning and exam. Regular checkups are essential to your dental health!
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply.
After your teeth have been cleaned, I we perform a thorough examination. We check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.
Some individuals mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental problems advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It is far less costly to prevent dental problems than to treat them after they have become severe.
If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call The Addison Dentist in Addison TX to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry.
