Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your dentist will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
Regular cleanings are also critical in maintaining your best oral health and having your best smile. During your routine cleaning, your dental hygienist will provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish.
Visiting the dentist every six months gives you the opportunity to check in with your dentist with any questions or concerns you may have about your oral health. Checkups are also a great way for you to find out about new treatments that may benefit your smile.
Selecting the Best Toothpaste and Toothbrush for You
To maintain your smile between visits, it is important to choose the right products. When choosing among toothpastes and toothbrushes, be sure to look for one that has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Your dentist and your dental hygienist can also help by recommending certain dental products for use at home.
Did you know that at birth, people already have 20 primary (baby) teeth that begin erupting after six months, and that by age 21, there are no more primary teeth, and all 32 permanent teeth have erupted?
Getting to know your teeth can be fun and educational!
