Are Regular Dental Cleanings Really Necessary?
Because many people are so busy with work, taking care of children, school, and other activities, sometimes it feels like going to the dentist just won’t fit into your schedule. Though it can sometimes be difficult to find time to see your family dentist, regular appointments are highly advised.
Why Are Six-Month Appointments Important?
Patients that come in for their six-month checkup appointments are more likely than others to have strong, healthy teeth. Besides that, your gums are the foundation of your teeth, which need to be cleaned and taken care of regularly. If your gums aren’t healthy, your teeth will begin to fail.
Tooth decay and gum disease can lead to worse health conditions all over the body. To prevent more severe diseases, make sure you get your teeth cleaned and checked every six months by professionals. Though regular dental appointments will promote healthy gums and teeth, it is important that you also do your part by brushing twice daily and flossing once daily in between these appointments.
What Happens During a Typical Cleaning at Avenues Family Dentistry?
Professional dental cleanings are vital for your oral health and should happen at least every six months to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. During these appointments, your dentist will take x-rays and review them in case you have any cavities. He or she will also check on the overall health of your mouth, which includes looking out for cancerous lesions.
In addition, your hygienist will work with your dentist during your appointment to perform a thorough cleaning to remove any plaque, tartar, and debris present in your mouth.
At Avenues Family Dentistry, we are here to help improve your smile and your confidence. Take advantage of your dental insurance if you have it, since it might cover your cleanings completely. Please call our office at (801) 328-4173 to schedule an appointment or to ask any additional questions!
Do You Offer Same Day Dental Crowns?
Yes, at Avenues Family Dentistry, we have a CEREC, which is a dental product that enables us to make dental crowns, veneers, inlays or onlays in one appointment. You no longer have to go through the traditional crown process of having a temporary crown or an extra appointment to get your permanent crown. Our same day crown process will save you time by getting everything done in one sitting. To learn more about same day crowns, visit our dental crowns page, or contact us at (801) 328-4173.
