The Benefits of Regular Dental Visits

Visiting a professional dental office on a regular basis helps maintain your oral hygiene and the aesthetics of the smile. Routine professional dental care:

  • Prevents Future Dental Problems: Routine visits offer preventative care so we can keep track of any current oral health concerns. Gingivitis, or gum inflammation, is an early form of gum disease that many patients can easily develop. In addition to dental cleanings and examinations, we can take detailed x-rays. This dental technology helps us see areas of tooth damage, infection, and loss.
  • Can Improve The Look of the Smile: Our dental hygienists use specialized dental tools to provide patients with a deep clean. Dental cleanings can also remove tooth stains in the process. Tooth stains are commonly caused by poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, and foods and drinks that discolor the tooth enamel. Regular dental cleanings remove the causes of tooth stains and yellowing.
  • Keeps Your Smile Fresh: Halitosis, or bad breath, is often caused by a buildup of food particles and bacteria. Professional cleanings keep harmful bacteria away. In addition, if you have dry mouth, which can be another cause of bad breath, we can help find solutions that work for you.
