What habits help you present the best smile possible? Brushing and flossing certainly form the bedrock of clean and healthy teeth by removing plaque deposits that can form on their surface. When you double up your smile protection with regular cleanings and examinations, you give yourself the full preventive smile care package. Because certain oral threats require a professional eye to detect and remove, skipping your dental visits can lead to unfortunate decay and infection outcomes. If it has been longer than a year since your last checkup, we highly encourage you to schedule a visit right away! In addition to treating any active concerns we discover at your cleaning, regular visitation allows us to create a dental record that tracks sudden changes as the years go by. This can lead to more prompt detection and preservation of your healthy tissues!
At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we prefer taking a proactive attitude toward your oral health. This means not waiting until painful symptoms appear to call the dentist’s office, but instead visiting regularly to inspect your health before things become worse. This could mean discovering a cavity when it is small enough for a filling instead of waiting until it turns into a painful infection.
Putting Your Oral Health First
When you partner with your dentist to take care of your smile, you receive beneficial feedback on the effectiveness of your daily oral hygiene routine. When we look at your teeth, we can let you know if certain areas require a little more attention. This helps determine when people are ignoring the harder-to-reach back surfaces of their molars. This can preserve healthy tissue instead of later discovering cavities eroding their healthy surfaces. If we detect a more involved active concern, such as a gum infection, we can put you on an advanced treatment schedule to achieve better health.
Restoring Your Periodontal Health
When inflammation causes your gum tissue to recede, you risk permanent infection if bacteria reach bone. By attending regular checkups, we may discover gum disease in its first stage, gingivitis, while it is still reversible. Regardless of your infection’s stage, we can provide a scaling and root planing procedure to remove bacteria that feed the disease. By going below the gumline, we clean the entirety of your tooth’s root, so that your tissues may heal and reattach. After this treatment, you may expect your symptoms to subside.
