With the new year close at hand, many of us will take time to think about the larger and smaller actions we can take to make 2023 the best year possible. One important step you can take to protect yourself is to make sure you have preventive dental appointments booked for yourself and your family members. These visits provide routine services that have lasting value, as they help you avoid difficulties with tooth decay, gum disease, and other threats to our smiles that can lead to alarming complications. Our Cleveland, TX dentist’s office is ready to help you make sure your treatment needs are met, and we are also ready to help you if your goals for 2023 include cosmetic changes to your smile!
What Can You Do To Keep Your Smile Healthy Through The New Year?
If you want to make sure you spend the next year (and beyond) without oral health issues, make sure you commit to the right diet, and be consistent with brushing and flossing every day. To make sure your efforts are successful—and to prevent unexpected problems from escaping your notice—remember to also book your regular dental exams. At these appointments, we perform thorough reviews and also take the time to carefully clean your teeth. Without regular reviews, tartar buildup and other issues put you at risk for serious trouble.
Why You Should Have Your Regular Exams And Cleanings Booked In Advance
Unless you are following directions from your dentist by keeping up with a different schedule, you should have a preventive oral health exam booked every six months. Every visit provides a careful visual inspection as well as a thorough cleaning that fights tartar and plaque buildup. We also provide protection through regular reviews for the warning signs of oral cancer during these visits. A healthy smile receives extra support through the removal of tartar, a substance you are not able to remove on your own. If a problem is found, we can make sure that it is properly caught and treated before there are complications that demand more involved restorative dental care.
Caring For Active Oral Health Issues Discovered During A Routine Review
If a routine review reveals the presence of a cavity, gingivitis, or another threat, we are ready to help! Our support will be tailored to your needs, and we can see to it that work affecting your tooth structure preserves your smile as well as your bite function.
