Good oral health is a vital component to maintaining the overall health of your body. Because of this link, it is necessary to see your dentist on a regular basis so that we can monitor your dental health.
Regular dental visits are essential to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. For maximum benefit, a good home care regimen must be supplemented with a professional examination at least every six months. Depending on the status of your oral health, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
Checking your teeth for decay is only a small part of a thorough exam. Your dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth, instruct you of proper home care techniques, and encourage you to maintain good oral hygiene.
At every regularly scheduled dental appointment, your dentist examines your teeth, gums, mouth, and throat. A regular dental visit includes the following:
- Head and neck examination
- Clinical dental examination
- Dental cleaning (prophylaxis)
After completing the dental exam, your dentist will outline a detailed treatment plan, if necessary, and indicate when you need to return for a follow-up visit. Regular preventive maintenance of this type, along with a thorough home care regimen, helps assure your good oral health.
