Dental Cleanings and Exams Allow Us To Catch Problems Early
We primarily focus here at the practice on routine dental visits. And by dental visits, that’s exams, X-rays, cleanings, that sort of thing.
We do that basically, or routinely, I guess I should say, on a six-month basis for patients that don’t really have any other outlying problems.
What that allows us to do is get you in every six months, take a look at your teeth, and we can tell in a six-month time frame if something’s changed.
If it’s changed a little, then we’re able to go in and treat that. Six months in a dental world is longer than you think. Things can happen in six months that people really don’t realize.
But not so much so that we’re not able to get in there and treat it relatively quickly. So, it’s super important to come in every six months, get your teeth cleaned. We are able to look at your records, follow you, and know that if something’s going on, then we’re able to catch it pretty quickly.
In children, for instance, I mean, things can happen in six months in a child’s tooth that can be really devastating. Not so much in adult teeth, but children especially.
And so, we want to take the time to keep good eyes on that, have a good record of what’s going on, make sure that if you do have something going that we’re able to catch it and treat it.
