  • Why are dental checkups important?

    Dental checkups are vital for early detection and prevention of oral health issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Regular visits allow our dentists to monitor your oral health and provide necessary treatments to keep your mouth healthy. These checkups also give you the opportunity to learn about proper oral hygiene practices.

    Gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss, so it is crucial to intervene early. Once the disease has affected the tooth and supporting bone, it cannot be restored; it can only be managed or replaced. During a dental checkup, the hygienist will use a small ruler to measure the gum “pocket” around each of your teeth. This helps identify areas that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush or floss. X-rays are also used to locate areas of bone recession.

  • How often should you get dental checkups?

    It is recommended that you should visit the dentist every six months for a dental check-up. During your first visit, the dentist will ask for your complete health history to understand your past and current health. After that, regular dental check-ups will help to identify any changes in your oral health and ensure that your teeth and mouth are in good condition.

    The American Dental Association and most dentists recommend a six-month interval because the maintenance and cleaning provided at each visit is the best way to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy. If your mouth is free of gum disease and heavy buildup, six months is usually the average time for tartar and stains to accumulate to the point where you need another teeth cleaning. However, if you have a history of periodontitis, those maintenance visits may need to be as frequent as every 3-4 months.
