Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to diagnose and treat issues at their earliest stages. Early detection and treatment save unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.
While the Academy of General Dentistry recommends checkups twice a year, depending on your specific dental needs, Dr. Freeman may recommend a checkup schedule that is more or less frequent than twice a year. Your dental checkup includes:
Good oral hygiene means that you will have less plaque buildup, resulting in reduced risk of gum disease as well as quicker and easier dental checkups. Oral hygiene is also important to overall health. You will feel more confident about your smile and have fresher breath.
The key to good oral health is keeping plaque and food decay from building up in your mouth. Plaque and food decay attract harmful bacteria that cause cavities, gum disease, and persistent bad breath. To keep your teeth and gums, healthy brush your teeth and tongue twice a day, floss at least once daily, and make regular visits to the dentist for checkups and professional cleaning.
