Once you’ve lost your baby teeth and your adult teeth have grown in, they are the only natural teeth you will have for the rest of your life. This being the case, it stands to reason that you will want to keep your teeth in excellent condition so that they can last you your entire life. If you are truly dedicated to keeping your teeth in excellent condition, there are a few proactive steps you can take. To begin with, you need to establish good dental hygiene habits, such as brushing twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash regularly. A second part of keeping your teeth health involves getting yourself on a regular dental checkup schedule.
You use your mouth every day, which means that it can change quickly. Small dental problems can grow into larger ones almost overnight. Having a routine dental checkup every six months can help to catch small dental problems before they explode into huge ones. When you come in for your regularly scheduled dental checkup, you can expect to have your teeth cleaned, x-rays performed, a personalized consultation with our dentist and the scheduling of any further dental work that may be necessary for promoting good dental health. Not only will we check on the state of your teeth, but we will also examine your gums for any issues, such as gingivitis or other symptoms of potentially serious dental health issues.
If you are ready to keep your teeth healthy and strong, contact us at G.R. Sheumaker Jr. DDS to schedule your dental checkup today. You’ll be glad you did!
