You probably know that you should visit our team regularly if you’re interested in protecting the health of your teeth. For this reason, even though your time is important, we recommend visiting us twice a month. In reality, skipping these bi-annual cleanings can lead to a number of problems.

Of course, our team will clean your teeth during these appointments, but did you know that our team can clean your teeth more thoroughly than you can at home? Still, we’ll do more than clean your teeth during these appointments. We’ll also search your teeth for signs of serious issues.

Of course, one issue we’ll search for is oral cancer. In reality, these issues could be off-colored spots in your mouth or strange lumps in your mouth. Similarly, did you know that you could have gum disease without ever realizing it? We’ll also look for signs of gum disease, which our team is trained to recognize. We’ll also help you cope with these symptoms.

Our team will also be happy to look for signs of tooth decay. If you have tooth decay and don’t address it, the decay could eventually kill the afflicted tooth. Skipping your bi-annual cleaning will give decay time to become more serious, leading to a number of other problems. If decay is left unaddressed, you could eventually need a number of other treatments, such as tooth extractions or root canal therapy.
