Why are dental exams needed?
Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential to keeping teeth and gums healthy and preventing future oral complications. During these visits, dentists can:
- Professionally remove plaque build-up
- Check for early signs of decay or disease
- Provide advice on how you can maintain good oral hygiene between appointments
In addition, regular dental checkups allow your dentist to monitor the overall health of your mouth and provide treatment for any issues before they become more serious. Taking the time to schedule dental exams can help you to avoid more involved treatments down the road.
