Taking care of your teeth is not merely restricted to brushing and flossing them every morning and night. Dental care requires more attention than that. When you do not follow proper oral care, you may fall prey to various dental problems like gum disease, tooth pain, etc. Poor dental health is also associated with several health problems like kidney disease, diabetes, and heart disease. Routine dental care and check-ups help to maintain your overall oral health.
Importance of Dental Visits
When you visit our dentist regularly for routine dental care, you will be less likely to get diagnosed with dental concerns like cavities, bleeding in gums, tooth decay, etc. Our dentist addresses such dental issues on time, thus making it easier to correct your oral problems before they take bad shape.
What does Routine Dental Care Include?
Apart from brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, routine dental care also involves frequent visits to our dentist to clean your teeth and treat other concerns. Our dentist may perform the following procedures after examining your teeth:
- Dental Cleaning
Professional teeth cleaning or dental cleaning is one of the best ways to maintain your oral health. Our dentist recommends you opt for a dental cleaning once every six months. Professional dental cleaning involves removing the build-up of plaque, tartar, and other deposits from your teeth using professional-grade cleaning substances. Our dentist also performs deep cleaning to reduce the possibilities of gum diseases. The procedure also results in a brightening smile.
- Fluoride Treatment
Routine dental care also includes fluoride treatments that clean and strengthen your teeth. When you eat and brush your teeth, the enamel deteriorates away. Moreover, the consumption of acidic foods and drinks dissolves the dentin. Fluoride treatment addresses all these concerns and strengthens your teeth. This procedure is completed within a few minutes only.
- Dental Sealants
Many dentists recommend dental sealants as a part of routine dental care. A sealant is a translucent substance brushed along the surface of teeth, ideal for people who have deep ridges in their teeth’ chewing surfaces. A dental sealant seals the ridges, thereby avoiding the accumulation of food and other particles and preventing your teeth from decay.
- Dental Restorations and Fillings
Upon your dental check-up and examination, our dentist may also recommend you some dental repairs to restore your chipped or broken teeth. Composite fillings are widely used to restore compromised teeth using dental-grade resin. The resin matches the color of your tooth, hence giving it a natural appearance.
