Brushing and flossing your teeth are important if you’re interested in enjoying a healthy smile. Similarly, you probably know that you should visit our dentist if you have problems like pain, a cracked tooth, or swollen gums. However, would you be surprised to hear that you should visit our dentist even if your teeth feel fine?
You see, even if you brush and floss every day, there could be areas that you miss. If this happens, tartar will form on your teeth. Sadly, tartar can ultimately lead to gum disease and you won’t be able to remove tartar on your own without damaging your teeth. When you visit our team, we’ll remove any tartar that has formed and tell you about areas you could be missing.
Naturally, we’ll also inspect your teeth to see how we can improve your oral health. Some issues like a missing or chipped tooth may be easy to spot, but did you know that there are other issues that are more difficult to identify? For example, many people have gum disease and tooth decay and don’t realize it. While there are signs you can identify—such as bad breath and bleeding gums—our team is trained to spot them and many others. Sadly, if these issues aren’t addressed, you could ultimately lose your tooth. We’ll also search for problems like oral cancer.
