Make Sure to go to Your Biannual Exam and Cleaning

Posted .

Visiting the dentist twice a year along with your daily regimen of brushing and flossing daily is key in preventing dental damage. A biannual checkup will allow your dentist to monitor your dental health and provide any dental services to keep your smile healthy and stop possible infections.

You will have a better chance at fighting off plaque buildup, cavities, and other dental dangers at your yearly appointments. Dr. Stephen Babin and our dental team want to help you maintain a strong and healthy smile with a professional cleaning and exam. This examination includes:

– An extensive cleaning where our hygienists remove tartar (also known as dental calculus) and plaque. These deterrents can lead to decay, cavities, or periodontal (gum) disease.

– A professional fluoride treatment will be applied as well as flossing and polishing your teeth.

– Any sign of dental diseases or complications will be looked for as well as signs of oral cancer.

X-rays are used to examine the healthy pulp and roots inside of your teeth. You may need to visit the dentist more than twice a year if there are any signs of dental problems. These exams and cleanings ensure a close look at your smile and an early detection of problems.
