It’s common knowledge that in order to maintain a healthy smile, it’s necessary to practice effective dental hygiene techniques such as brushing and flossing your teeth on a daily basis to prevent tooth decay. Today, we also remind you that it’s important to visit the dentist twice a year and receive dental cleanings to keep your oral health sound.
Your routine dental checkups include dental cleaning as an important component since the cleaning process is a time for our team to remove any harmful substances and reduce the appearance of tooth stains that your at-home care can’t remove. Furthermore, it’s during these appointments that Dr. Anne Murray, DDS looks for any signs of serious dental issues in your mouth that require further treatment. By maintaining these dental visits, you are more likely to be able to receive conservative and economical dental treatment.
Our team will keep an eye out for certain dental concerns during your appointment, and an important one is oral cancer, which requires early detection to increase the chances of full recovery. We can also determine if you have any symptoms of gum disease or cavities, and we can then treat these conditions before they can contribute to other health problems, including respiratory concerns and heart disease.
