The Importance of Routine Dental Visits

While brushing and flossing at home is paramount, even those with the best routines can be affected by dental issues. These problems are often hard to see or feel, which is why routine checkups and cleanings are so important. During your cleaning, one of our highly trained hygienists will remove plaque and tartar that can’t be cleaned away at home. However, your dental checkup is the part of your routine visit that can be lifesaving. In addition to checking the health of your teeth, we will also examine your mouth for problems like oral cancer and gum disease.

These checkups give us an opportunity to catch dental issues while they are still small, preventing you from having to undergo more extensive and expensive treatments in the future. Unlike other medical issues that get better with time, oral health issues will only grow worse. That’s why it’s vital to come see us every six months.

What Happens during a Routine Dental Checkup?

During your dental checkup, your dentist in Longview, TX, will examine your mouth for any signs of decay, gum disease, infection, or other issues. We will also take X-rays of your mouth to get a better look at your dental structure and jawbone because some issues cannot be identified with the naked eye. Additionally, these checkups can be lifesaving because we also screen for oral cancer. If caught early on, it is one of the most treatable cancers, and we are highly experienced in identifying its symptoms.

What Happens During Regular Cleanings?

During your routine dental cleaning, one of our hygienists will:

  • Remove plaque and tartar that couldn’t be cleaned away at home
  • Polish your teeth, giving you a fresh and healthy looking smile
  • Floss your teeth with proper technique, removing any lingering debris
  • Provide you with tips for at-home oral healthcare

Our hygienists are also a great resource if you have any questions about how to take care of your teeth or what products to use. After spending some time with you and your smile, they’ll be able to give you dental tips and information geared toward your specific needs.
