What Are the Benefits of a Dental Checkup?

Posted .

If you’re curious to know why your dentists, Dr. Jared Condie and Dr. Brian Tuft, strongly recommend getting a dental checkup every six months, then you’re about to find out. Our dental team is more than happy to tell you all about the benefits involved in a dental checkup. There are many things a dental checkup can do for you, your smile and your oral health. The benefits of dental checkups are:

-Dental checkups help you prevent dental issues: This is possible because the dental cleaning alone can remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline and help you prevent cavities and gum disease. It’s also possible because the fluoride treatment can strengthen the tooth enamel and help your teeth fight bacteria, acid and even pressure that causes tooth cracks.

-Dental checkups make sure your smile is in tip-top shape: The exam section of the checkup will allow our dentist to thoroughly inspect the teeth, gums and bone with the help of dental X-rays. If something isn’t in pristine condition, then he will restore your oral health with a top-of-the-line dental treatment as soon as possible.

-Dental checkups give you a chance to learn about your smile: Our dental team will give you tips and information regarding your teeth and gums. This can help you keep your smile in tip-top shape while you’re at home.
