Preventative care is one of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy. We encourage getting a dental checkup every six months unless your dentist suggests otherwise.
At Durham Dental Group, we provide family dentistry services to help prevent you and your loved ones from developing oral health issues. We also provide restorative & cosmetic dentistry services if tooth damage or decay has already taken place in your mouth.
Why Are Dental Check-Ups and Teeth Cleanings Important?
There are a number of reasons dental checkups and cleanings are important, including the following:
- Dental problems can be caught and rectified before they cause damage. We have the tools and technology necessary to detect issues in their earliest stages.
- Brushing and flossing aren’t enough to completely rid your mouth of plaque and bacteria. Even if you take good care of your teeth at home, it’s important to visit the dentist for a regular teeth cleaning so that we can use our professional tools to keep your mouth healthy.
- We can find issues that are difficult to detect. Gum disease, oral cancer, and impacted wisdom teeth are just a few of the problems that need the proper tools in order to be discovered.
- Dental cleanings are more affordable than fillings and other dental work. Preventing problems from growing will help you keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket.
What Happens During a Dental Checkup?
When you come visit our family dentistry for a dental checkup and teeth cleaning, we’ll work hard to keep you comfortable. We will discuss any questions you have and do our best to provide you with answers. Afterward, we’ll take images of your teeth using our digital x-ray and also search for any issues that need attention. If you require restorative & cosmetic dentistry, we can schedule a return appointment or consultation.
We will use our quality tools to clean your teeth, and will also provide you with a dental sealant to protect your teeth from decay.
