Cleanings & Preventive Care
What happens to your car if you don’t take it in for regular maintenance and oil changes?
First, it begins to run poorly; then the entire vehicle begins to break down. In the end, you might find yourself having to constantly fix different parts of your car – or even replace them altogether. You wind up dealing with much more hassle and expense than you would have if you had taken the time to maintain your car.
The same thing happens when you don’t schedule regular check-ups and cleanings.
Why Check-Ups and Cleanings Matter
Many people are unaware that most dental problems start off “silent.” In other words, you won’t experience any symptoms until the problem has advanced and requires more complex treatment.
Check-ups allow your dentist to review your dental health and screen for a number of common and usually silent problems, including decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. We use visual screening, a tactile examination, and x-rays to identify problems as early as possible when we can offer simpler treatments.
Cleanings are like oil changes. No matter how well you brush your teeth, you are bound to be missing certain areas. It’s simply inevitable and certainly no judgment on your hygiene! The problem is that leftover plaque will harden into tartar, or calculus, which can only be removed with a dental hygienist’s tools. When you get regular cleanings, it’s like getting a fresh start every six months, which prevents decay and gum disease, two conditions caused by bacteria and plaque build-up.
