We want to help you and your family maintain good oral health, avoiding the onset of issues like tooth decay or periodontal disease. To do so, we urge you to schedule a dental exam every six months. In today’s blog, your team at Riverside Dental Group in Corona, CA, talks about the importance of a simple dental checkup.

The Importance of a Dental Exam

Why do we need a checkup every six months? The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends this because the serious issues that threaten smile stability, such as tooth decay and gum disease, don’t form overnight. So, a visit every few months is a chance to catch these concerns in their early stages, often before you even experience discomfort. We then provide treatment to keep your smile strong. To obtain a diagnosis with precision, we will employ advanced digital x-rays and intraoral camera technology, so you can smile with confidence and enjoy your best smile. This is helpful for kids and adults alike, so every member of your family should see us every six months!

The Cleaning Process

In the same appointment, our team will further protect your smile with a professional dental cleaning, a procedure that removes all the plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing alone cannot do. Our team will use an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool to break up and remove all the buildup. We then polish the teeth for a brighter appearance and to limit how much buildup can form before your next six months appointment. This can lower the risk of cavities, injection, gingivitis, and gum disease. The procedure also fights bad breath and prevents major discoloration too!

Protecting Smiles From Home

Our team also recommends care at home to protect the smile before your next checkup and cleaning visit. You should brush twice a day for two minutes, using a fluoride toothpaste each time. You should floss in the evening before you brush that second time, and also cut back on how much sugar and starch is in your diet. Be sure you see our team twice a year too! If you have any questions, reach out today.
