The First Step Towards Great Dental Health with Regular Dental Check-ups and Cleanings
If you observe diligent oral care at home, you may be tempted to skip biannual dental appointments. While your at-home oral care is great for your mouth, there are some things that only a dentist can do. Routine dental checkups eliminate stubborn tartar, spot cavities, and prevent a host of other dental issues. At Total Health Dental, Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin offers dental exams, professional cleanings, and other services to keep your smile intact. If you are in Aurora, Illinois, and its environs, please book an appointment with our dental practice to save your smile.
What to expect during dental appointments
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), you should see a dentist every six months. During these visits, this is what to expect:
- Dental x-rays: After a physical examination of your mouth, Dr. Mohsinuddin takes digital x-rays to look out for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral challenges.
- Dental cleanings: If you take optimal oral care at home, your oral prophylaxis is no big deal. We use special tools to clean hard-to-reach areas to eliminate tartar, which attracts gum disease.
- Intraoral examinations: Your bi-annual appointments aren’t all about x-rays and cleanings. Dr. Mohsinuddin and the team examine your mouth to check out for dental damage, bite misalignment, and signs of oral cancer. We recommend advanced care treatments to revive your smile if we find any dental problems.
Booking your dental appointment takes a few minutes and a few hours to accomplish. Stacked up against pain, costs, and time of restorative dental work, routine dental checkups are a no-brainer.
Benefits of bi-annual dental checkups
By cleaning your teeth twice a year, we keep your mouth away from gum disease, which not only affects your mouth but can affect vital organs like the heart, liver, and kidney if left untreated.
Besides, it’s only during dental exams your dentist can spot anomalies like bite misalignment, cavities, and signs of oral cancer, after which we recommend proper treatment.
