Why You Should Have Two Dental Checkups In A Year

We are approaching the final third of the calendar year. Have you made it to your dentist’s office for routine care yet in 2021? These appointments should occur on a semiannual basis, which means you should have two checkups each year, and should have gone in for treatment at least once. Missing out on these visits will leave you more vulnerable to problems with cavities and gum disease. Our Riverside, CA dentist’s office can help you by providing important early warnings about these issues, and by providing teeth cleanings that make them less likely to affect you.

When Was Your Last Dental Exam?

Have you been to the dentist’s office for routine care yet this year? Unless your dentist has told you to do otherwise, you should have a routine visit scheduled roughly once every six months. Your regular checkups provide early warnings about many different concerns that can affect your smile. They also provide preventive care that can help you avoid trouble in the future. We can help you return to good habits if you have fallen out of the habit of booking checkups!

How Preventive Care Protects Your Smile

Preventive dental services do something important, something that you are not able to do for yourself. If you have any tartar deposits on your teeth, they will remain in place even after you brush and floss. To make sure they are no longer an issue for you, make sure you see your dentist for your teeth cleaning. Your hygienist can remove this substance before the buildup hurts your smile. Another form of protection comes courtesy of your dentist’s evaluation of your smile. During that review, we can identify problems that will need to be treated before they grow more severe.

We Can Step In And Care For You When Problems Are Identified

If your dentist notices that something is wrong, we can make plans to restore your oral health at our practice. Cavities are a common concern, even for patients who have good hygiene routines that they follow. We can make sure your tooth has a filling or crown to protect it, and that our restorations offer both stability and cosmetic support. Our practice is also here to help with other issues, like TMJ disorder, that can hurt your quality of life.
