Have you ever wondered why we strongly suggest six monthly check-ups for most people? It’s because regular preventative dental care is the simplest way to maintain healthy teeth and gums. If you have any issues or ongoing dental problems, we might suggest seeing you more frequently. In between your visits to The Avenue Dental, it is crucial to remain vigilant about looking after your dental health.
What to Expect During Regular Dental Examinations?
During your dental exam, our dentist will check your teeth for signs of cavities and carefully evaluate your gum health. Gum disease is a common problem which can cause tooth loss, and which may even affect your general health. It is easy to overlook the initial symptoms, but when caught and treated early, gum disease is entirely reversible. Your oral tissues, neck, lymph nodes, face and your lower jaw joints are all checked regularly for signs of disease and inflammation.
Professional Dental Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings are crucial for healthy teeth and gums, removing any plaque and tartar that builds up in between visits. Also, our hygienist can review your brushing and flossing techniques if needed. Treatment is completed by polishing your teeth, leaving them sparkling and you with beautifully fresh breath.
