Why Do I Need Regular Dental Checkups?

We don’t want to take up your time, or keep you from the things you love to do – but a few hours per year with your dentist and dental hygienist for regular dental checkups can make all the difference!

That’s it – just a few hours per year! In that time, you can receive the thorough dental checkups, gum measurements, xrays and dental cleanings you need to keep your gums and teeth healthy for life.

Regular checkups and tooth cleaning appointments reduce the risk of dental problems from forming, and also catch dental problems early. Early detection and treatment allows for less costly and less involved treatment.

On the other hand, letting small dental problems go unchecked can lead to tooth pain, infections, abscesses, weakened, broken teeth, persistent bad breath, gum disease, and even bacterial infections that can spread from the mouth to other areas of the body.  Stop issues before they start, and commit to regular dental checkups!

What Happens During A Dental Checkup?

During your regular checkups, your appointment will begin with the dental hygienist who will perform a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque from above and below the gum line. Plaque is a living colony of bacteria, and we want to keep it in check.

If it’s been awhile, you may have tartar. Tartar is hardened plaque that was not cleaned away in time. It cements to your tooth structure and can only be removed with professional dental instruments. Come in regularly to avoid tartar buildup, which can cause gum disease and tooth loss.

After cleaning, we’ll polish your teeth to remove any surface stains and keep your smile looking fantastic.

Depending on your personal dental history, we will take gum measurements and x-rays as required. The timeline is different for everyone, so trust your dentist’s advice.

It’s not “just a checkup.”   It’s an important part of prevention and overall health. And with our extended hours and free parking, we make it easy to come visit us for a few hours per year.
