If you fall and suffer trauma to any of your teeth, you probably understand that visiting a dentist is important. You probably also understand that setting up an appointment with us is very important, especially if you have sensitive or painful gums. Still, had you heard that you should schedule regular dental appointments with our dentist even if you don’t think you’re suffering from any dental issues?

An important part of these bi-annual appointments is a deep cleaning. Of course, brushing and flossing should be extremely important parts of your daily routine. However, our team can actually do a much deeper cleaning that your toothbrush or floss. This cleaning might be important if you have tartar on your teeth. You see, tartar—if not properly treated—will lead to gum disease. Furthermore, if you try to remove tartar by yourself, you might harm your pearly whites. Fortunately, our team can remove tartar and offer you individualized advice on keeping your teeth cleaner.

We will also inspect your teeth for signs of dental problems. Visiting a dentist is also extremely important because you may not be able to discover these issues by yourself. In fact, many people who have problems with gum disease or tooth decay don’t recognize these dental issues. Similarly, our team will screen your mouth for signs and symptoms of oral cancer.
