Did you know that you should be visiting your dentist at least twice a year for routine professional care such as dental cleanings? At My Smyle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we believe that preventive dentistry is an essential part of maintaining optimal oral health and urge our patients to visit us every 6 months for professional care. Wondering why you shouldn’t skip your professional dental care?
When it comes to smiles, they typically aren’t perfect! Many patients have areas in their mouth where debris, plaque, bacteria, and even tartar can hide and build up. Even those that practice proper at-home dental care tend to miss these specific areas, increasing their risk of tooth decay, oral infections, and even gum disease. Once the plaque in these areas has hardened, specialized tools are actually required to safely remove the tartar and preserve your teeth.
When it comes to tooth decay and cavity formation, even the smallest amount of plaque can lead to problems. During your professional cleaning, we ensure that every corner of your mouth is sparkly clean.
Are you aware if you are brushing properly? At My Smyle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we often see patients that are convinced they brush correctly, only to find out they have been doing it wrong their whole life. During your appointment, our experienced dental team will take time to ensure you understand how to properly care for your smile and overall oral health.
Did you know that the earlier dental complications are treated, the better? When it comes to dental care, we always recommend treating conditions as soon as they are noticed. When you neglect to schedule routine professional dental care, the condition of your oral health cannot be properly monitored.
