Advantages of Regular Dental Checkups

Advantages of Regular Dental CheckupsA healthy mouth begins at home with good dental hygiene such as daily flossing, and twice daily brushing, but regular dental checkups are also very important to the health of your mouth. While some people only visit the dentist when they experience pain or an obvious oral health problem like a cracked or broken tooth, regular dental checkups help maintain the health of your mouth and your appearance and can even improve your overall health.

At a regular dental checkup, our Los Angeles dentist will check for signs of decay, damage, loose fillings, or any other oral health problems. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned and polished, and tartar will be removed. Your gums will be examined for any signs of gingivitis or inflammation.

Your teeth and gums will be checked for signs of other health issues as well. The bacteria associated with cavities and gum disease are also linked to heart disease and stroke. Loose teeth can be associated with osteoporosis. Diabetics and pregnant women may need to closely monitor their oral health through more frequent dental checkups.

A regular dental checkup is designed to keep your mouth healthier and prevent more costly dental work in the future. Your regular checkup is also the time to ask any questions you have about your teeth or oral health. This is also the time to mention any new medications or health concerns you have. Our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist will make appropriate treatment recommendations and discuss preventative care such as brushing and flossing with you.
