Why Is Visiting A Dentist Every 6 Months So Important
Posted on 4/15/2020 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
You may have heard over and over that regular dental visits are extremely important. Dental appointments should not just be made when you have a cavity or suspect gum disease. Regular dental visits prevent you from having any dental health issues down the road and maintain optimum oral health.
At ZenTech Dentistry, we highly recommend visiting us every 6 months.
Preventive Health Care
If you have good oral health, most dental visits will provide you with preventive care. Although underrated, preventive care can eliminate the need for having expensive treatments in the future. At ZenTech Dentistry, Dr. Frank Sioda and Dr. Sioda will professionally scale and polish your teeth by removing stains and tartar, which can lead to gum disease. Additionally, they would offer you tips on how to improve you oral health care at home.
Tooth Whitening Consultation
Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures but it also comes with its share of myths about how safe it is. During your routine dental visit, we can give you the best advise whether tooth whitening is a good option for you or whether you need to consider another treatment alternative, considering the health of your tooth.
Checking for Mouth Cancer
Your dental checkup also includes looking for signs of oral cancer, as well as head and neck cancer. We will check for any unusual changes in your mouth, like lesions or red or white patches, and look for strange lumps in your head or neck region. Most of the time, oral cancer checkups will find nothing but in people with risk factors, they could potentially save lives.
