Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

While consistent brushing and flossing are essential to your long-term dental health, the truth of the matter is that your tools at home simply aren’t able to clean every single surface of your teeth and gums, especially if you have restorations like a bridge or dentures. As plaque lingers on your teeth, it turns into a hard substance called tartar. This yellowish mineral buildup can harbor bacteria, and it can only be removed by a trained dental professional.

However, regular dental checkups are about much more than just removing tartar and keeping your teeth clean. It’s important to have your teeth, gums, and mouth checked every six months for any signs of developing issues. Cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, enamel erosion, and more can all develop without you seeing or feeling them. Over time, these little issues can turn into big problems that need extensive treatment. During your dental checkup, we’ll strive to catch these issues as early as possible, when they’re still small and easy to treat.

What To Expect During a Dental Checkup

Any and all dental offices perform checkups, but none of them do it like Tindal Prosthodontics. During a dental checkup, Dr. Tindal will examine your teeth, gums, jaw, bite, and existing dental restorations to make sure there are no small problems to be addressed. By coming to see him regularly, he can prevent little issues from becoming major headaches later.

Using his observations, he’ll meticulously study your dentition and come up with a treatment plan going forward that is as unique as your smile itself. He’ll present this plan to you using a variety of images and visual-aids so that you’re both on the exact same page from the very beginning.

When you come to Tindal Prosthodontics, you will always know who is going to perform your cleaning. It will be Katie or Janet, who Dr. Tindal believes are some of the best hygienists in the entire country. They both have over 30 years of experience, which gives them an expert touch that enables them to help many patients that other offices can’t. You’ll receive their one-on-one attention right from the very beginning, so they can learn exactly how to take care of your smile in the way that works best for you. Most of the patients who come to see us have had cleanings before, but not like the ones that Katie and Janet provide! After an appointment with them, it will feel like you have a completely new smile!
