While preventive dental care is important, some people neglect to schedule checkups simply because they cannot seem to find time for them. Finding the right time for an appointment during traditional weekday office hours can be tough for many people. Because of this, Sunny Smiles does have Saturday office hours available! Thanks to this availability, we can see patients who have struggled to keep up with preventive dental care and provide important services. In addition to providing a routine teeth cleaning and thorough study of your teeth, we can look out for problems like TMJ disorder and bruxism, which can impact your quality of life when not managed.
Did Scheduling Problems Stop You From Scheduling Regular Exams?
Patients are typically advised to keep up with their oral health by scheduling checkups every six months. When they do this, they receive guidance about the health of their teeth as well as feedback about their periodontal health. Unfortunately, people sometimes break away from this habit and leave themselves vulnerable to advanced issues. Putting off your next appointment gives time for tartar to accumulate on teeth, and it can put you at risk for suffering an advanced cavity!
How Routine Visits Help You Maintain Healthy Teeth
With our Saturday appointments, we can open up our doors more easily to those who struggle to find time for care. During your routine visits, your hygienist will carefully remove all plaque and tartar buildup from your enamel. When you stay consistent with these exams, you are protected against a harmful accumulation of tartar that threatens your oral health and appearance. When your dentist studies your teeth, they will look out for early warning signs of tooth decay. When cavities have formed, they can be spotted and treated with dental fillings before they grow and cause a problem with infection. Your dentist will also alert you to issues with gum disease, problems with jaw pain or teeth grinding, and any other issues that may affect your well-being.
Tips For Keeping Your Smile In Good Health
Even after returning to regular dental exams, you should make your daily oral health care a priority. A good routine will see you brush at least twice each day and floss each evening before bed. Doing this will help you stop tartar from forming, it will lower your risk for cavities and gum disease, and it can generally help you maintain an attractive smile. To further protect yourself, make sure that you also keep your smile safe by limiting your intake of sugar!
