Has the time come for you to return to the dentist’s chair and receive feedback about your oral health? Unless you are already following orders from your dentist to do something different, it is safe to assume that you should go in for a checkup every six months. At our Virginia Beach, VA dentist’s office, we can take care of individuals who are in need of a regular review. During your visit, you can receive important feedback about your oral health as well as a teeth cleaning that will remove harmful agents from your teeth. If necessary, we can make plans to provide additional services so that we can resolve problems with your smile.
How Long Ago Did Your Last Dental Exam Take Place?
A typical patient should arrange a dental exam to take place every six months. If you have let more time than this elapse, returning to treatment will be important. Problems with your dental and periodontal health can form without you realizing it. When this happens, you can miss the opportunity to have something treated before complications occur. Waiting until you feel that there is something wrong can lead to the need for more involved restorative dental work!
What To Expect When You Go In For Your Next Checkup
At every dental checkup, both a teeth cleaning and evaluation will take place. When your teeth are cleaned, your hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup that can make you more likely to have problems with tooth decay and gum disease. For someone who is already showing signs of gingivitis, we can recommend a periodontal cleaning that will remove bacteria already present beneath the tissues. As your dentist evaluates you, problems like gingivitis and gum disease, concerns about dental decay, and more can be identified, which will lead to timely resolutions.
What If Your Dentist Identifies A Problem?
There are many oral health issues that we can identify in the course of regular appointments, and that can result in timely treatment before there are complications that can affect you. At your checkup, we will provide warnings about more than just tooth decay (though warnings about decay are certainly important). For example, another concern is that you might need to do something about TMJ problems that make it harder for your to bite and chew without discomfort.
