Looking Forward To Your Next Dental Checkup

El Paso, TX, Dental Checkup

How do you keep your smile as healthy as can be? Brushing and flossing each morning and evening provide the basis for your oral care. These daily activities remove food debris and plaque buildup that can stain your teeth and lead to active concerns. However, you also require regular dental checkups to ensure that your smile is free from tooth decay and gum disease. These biannual meetings create the opportunity to create a dental record that alerts us when sudden changes appear in your oral structures. Because we see you so frequently, we can react early in a smile threat’s development, leading to a more conservative treatment. This could mean placing a dental filling rather than waiting for a more painful symptom of decay that requires a more involved procedure. If it has been longer than you would like to admit since your last cleaning, we would like to remind you it is never too late to get back on track!

At Sunny Smiles Family Dentistry, we encourage a preventive attitude toward your oral care. This means combining healthy at-home habits with regular cleanings and exams to prevent smile threats before they take place. Routine checkups also allow us to treat problems such as cavities in the same visit instead of waiting for their symptoms to advance. If you would like to pursue a cosmetic or restorative procedure, we can discuss them at your checkup as well.

Putting Your Smile Care First

When you work with your dentist to maintain a healthy smile, you prevent the future need for more complicated repair work. This means attending your cleanings when you suspect nothing is wrong with your teeth and gums. If we detect tartar buildup, we have the tools necessary to remove this calcified bacterial buildup that your brush and floss cannot handle at home. That is why brushing and flossing are necessary, but insufficient, to fully take care of your oral hygiene. If you develop a problem outside of your six-month checkup schedule, we are happy to see you sooner.

Periodontal Maintenance

We provide routine cleanings for patients with active gum disease through periodontal maintenance. This procedure cleans deposits both above and below the gum line to relieve your gum infection symptoms. After cleaning your tooth’s roots, your gums can reattach, healing and resolving your body’s inflammatory response. Because gum disease is the leading cause of dental loss today, periodontal maintenance is critical to preserving your smile when living with an infection.
