Maintaining your heath and the health of your family members is of the utmost importance. There are many things you can do as a family to ensure you stay healthy. Eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and exercising are all important ways to maintain family health. When we think about family health, we often forget about having healthy teeth. However, keeping your teeth healthy is just as important!
There are several dental services that you should seek out regularly for each member of your family. Typically, all these services are included in regular dental checkups or can be diagnosed at that time.
- Teeth Cleaning: Family members both young and old need regular teeth cleaning. Your family members should visit the dentist for a cleaning every six months. In addition to an office visit, each family member should brush and floss their teeth daily.
- X–Rays: It is important to receive mouth X-rays to check out the health and integrity of the teeth beneath the surface. X-rays should be taken regularly every one to two years. A dentist can take X-rays as part of regular preventative medicine.
- Filling Cavities: Filling and preventing cavities is another important part of dental services. Cavities can be painful and damaging to the health of your teeth. Dentists will look for cavities as part of routine dental checkups.
These are a few essential dental services each member of your family should take care of at regular dental checkups. Contact us today to schedule your next appointment!
